The base model Matsuda guitar features a Sitka spruce top, Indian Rosewood body, a simple rosette and is a non cutaway instrument. My guitars are especially well-suited for finger-picking, however whatever your playing style is I can make custom guitars which fit your type of music.
As a custom builder I am flexible about options, material choices and enjoy working with you to design the guitar that is right for your musical needs.

And as each customer’s needs are unique I will work with you to choose the neck size, scale length, soundboard tuning, set up and any other details that will make the guitar perfect for you. Every Matsuda guitar is uniquely built for each client.
There are three choices of body sizes in my steel string guitars, Style M1-modified OM size, Style M2-modified OO size, and Mini-modified Parlor size.
I also offer two body shapes for nylon strings guitars. Essentially the same size as classical guitars, they are “crossover nylon string guitars”. One shape I use achieves a well-balanced guitar with a full tonal body and the other shape delivers a quick attack with a percussive sound.
