So Kimishima is the grandson of legendary Japanese luthier Masaru Kohno.

He worked for Masaki Sakurai for the past 15 years until he finally decided to create his own models, which are part of the Kohno Guitar Manufacturing lineup.

The beautiful spruce soundboard of this guitar is reinforced with six fan braces underneath and decorated with a very beautifully designed Kimishima’s signature rosette.

It offers very charming tonal qualities with an incredible balance throughout its voicings. 

Overall, a very charming instrument which we can recommend to anyone looking for a top-quality concert instrument.

So Kimishima is the grandson of legendary Japanese luthier Masaru Kohno.

He worked for Masaki Sakurai for the past 15 years until he finally decided to create his own models, which are part of the Kohno Guitar Manufacturing lineup.

Kimishima benefits from the research and experience of Masaru Kohno and Masaki Sakurai to continue the quality of their guitars but also to challenge new techniques and develop new models.

Like any other excellent craftsman, Kimishima pays particular attention to the details and finish of the guitar.
Stella is So Kimishima’s model, mainly based on the great guitars of Masaru Kohno from the 50s and 60s.

The beautiful spruce soundboard of this guitar is reinforced with six fan braces underneath and decorated with a very beautifully designed Kimishima’s signature rosette. It offers very charming tonal qualities with an incredible balance throughout its voicings. 

So Kimishima selected the beautiful Indian rosewood as the wood of choice for the back and sides, complimenting this instrument’s overall look.

The double ebony reinforcing strips in the back of the neck allow for a very accurate setup, so the action is low and easy without buzzing. The stiffer neck also improves sustain.

There is plenty of power here for any concert situation, including ensemble settings. Overall, a very charming instrument which we can recommend to anyone looking for a top-quality concert instrument.

As with all instruments from Kohno Guitar Manufacturing, this guitar displays perfect execution of craftsmanship to the highest standard.
