Subject: RE: Looking for a beautiful guitar
Your price range is way outside of what I would ever expect to be able to pay for an instrument so my offering is minor but I don't think there is a better guitar for the price than a used Haruo. I got my 12-string at a garage sale for $70 and everyone who has played it has declared it to be a fine instrument. It has a deep bottom and yet the high side is sweet and fine.
And before you say you are not looking for a 12 you should know that there are 6s out there too. Not long after I bought the 12 I contacted some other Haruo owners asking about the maker. They were all amazed that Haruo made a 12 and most wanted me to contact them if I decided to sell. They were all convinced their Haruo was a quality instrument that was under appreciated and lost behind the NAME guitars.
