Once again, we have been delighted to have the opportunity to connect one of our Bespoke customers with the work of master luthier Michiro Matsuda. The M1 model is akin to a deeper bodied OM, and this custom model features a dramatic Florentine cutaway. With an Italian spruce top and Madagascar rosewood back and sides, it has notable depth and blossoming character, with an overtone profile distinct among the rosewoods. The rosette and inlay theme on the body is nothing short of show-stopping, all while keeping an earthy elegance through Michi's use of cohesive wood pieces. It's another masterpiece that makes us proud to showcase Matsuda Guitars!
