Why not spread the cost?

This gorgeous M1 Cutaway was Michihiro Matsuda's flagship instrument on display at the 2018 Holy Grail Guitar Show, and has us as awe-struck now as it did then.
Built in a stunning set of Moena for the back and sides paired with a magnificent, tightly grained Italian Spruce top, this Orchestra Model combines the natural beauty of the materials Michi uses with an extraordinary attention to detail and instantly recognisable lines throughout the build. 
Sonically, this M1 has a powerful, even tone with a characteristic clarity and definition from the first fret through to the last. The top is lively and responsive and allows for the shimmering complexities in the highs alongside the deep response in the lows to be accessed at near any point in its huge dynamic range. 
Playability, as one would expect from a Matsuda, is smooth and inspiring, with unparalleled ease in the higher registers thanks to the Florentine cutaway and innovative signature neck heel carve. 
The guitar is in sensational condition and comes in a fitted Hoffee Hardcase.
