Hi,

Yes, I do own this classic guitar Ibanez for more than 20 years since I bought it in 1986 in one of the musical store in Kuala Lumpur.
I love this guitar so much that it is considered a concert guitar and hand made from Japan.

I don't know anything about the history of this guitar but I know it is a very good guitar with a strong and loud volume when you play it.

My version is a cedar top guitar with solid rosewood back and sides.

I am glad I know someone in Thailand had the same guitar I kept for a long time. this guitar musch better than today handmade guitars from US or Spain.

regard
Lawrence

Hi, Vatiny

I just found out that from the Ibanez classic guitar catlaog 1982/93, this Ibanez guitar model GA 1200 is a hand crafted guitar and signed by Rykjio Matsuoka. It was believed that Ibanez classical guitar in 1980s were made in R. Matsuoka workshop.

Here is the detail description of this guitar:

Top: Solid Spruce
Back & Side: Solid Indian Rosewood
Finger board: Ebony
Neck: Mahogany
Bridge: Rosewood
Machine head: Gold Hi DX
Finish: Cashew

There were 2 model of the master hand crafted Ibanez guitars: GA 1000 and GA 1200.
the only different of the 2 model is the GA 1000 has the laminated Rosewood on side and solid rosewood on back.
