I've seen a few bass guitars with that key to drop the bottom string a full step, but never an acoustic.  That IS cool.

Comment by Elton Bloye on August 29, 2015 at 12:31am

Wow, that Matsuda headstock is cool!

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on August 28, 2015 at 5:12pm

FG, you just need to wait until there is a contest where they're giving one away..........

Um...Casimi Guitars...yeah...

Hand built steel string acoustic guitar

Comment by Robert Williamson on August 28, 2015 at 3:45pm

I played a Matsuda once, same kinds of curved "binding" plus ports and a split headstock and a key to drop D. After I played it for bout 20mins, I asked him how much. His translator said $20k..I blanched.

It was a one-off  'show' model using most of his signature features.

Ive not found a recent pix. Here;s the head stock

Hereth sound port

He does not have a picture of the all-in model i played on his site that i can find. ;(

So that money, I will get a prehistory Martin.  At least, the Martin is likely to appreciate if kept in good condition.  20++K guitar should be made of banned human bone and banned rosewood.

Comment by Elton Bloye on August 28, 2015 at 12:57pm

You'll fall off your chair Martin when you see the price Martin. Its  ridiculous. That guitar reminds me of that Delta IV Heavy rocket that NASA launched in Jan. Its an amazing piece of engineering - a real thing of beauty. But each time they set it a light it costs a cool US $360 million. Mabye that guitar is "out of this world", but I would be very hard pressed to justify the expense.   

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on August 28, 2015 at 12:20pm

Those Casimis are very attractive to me. I couldn't see a price but went to TNAG site where they didn't show the price either, but they did show the price for a used Kevin Ryan Nightingale @ 8950.00 British pounds (CDN $18200.00) so definitely out of my league as I'm barely able to make the Monday night recreational men's league team!!!

Comment by Stephen Leigh on August 28, 2015 at 5:53am

I do like the design of the Casimis -- I find them very attractive -- but OMG the prices...  I'll stick with my 'gulls.  :-)

Comment by Tony K. on August 27, 2015 at 4:59pm

Interesting guitars Elton, but the bizarre looks and the price tags...... well, they're toys for the rich it seems.  lol.  Hard to tell how they sound compared to other guitars because all the vids of them have guys playing amazing stuff.  Well, amazing stuff will sound good on almost any guitar.  Would love to hear some basic stuff done for easy comparison to other guitars.  Not sure if I like them yet, they're so different looking, my brain needs time to decide.  8-)
