GUEST,jeff Ever heard of a 'SHIRAKI' guitar? (16) RE: Ever heard of a 'SHIRAKI' guitar? 06 Mar 10


Thank you for the link, leadfingers. These guitars look to be designed for the 'plugged in' acoustic sound. The ornate patterns on the soundboard appear to be anti-feedback bafflers and ports to allow air to move back and forth. Wouldn't think they would sound real good acoustically, but would wager they sound great plugged in.

Were I to acquire one of these beautiful instruments the first thing I would do is have an LR Baggs transducer and a Joe Mills microphone system installed to bring out the full sound. The Shadow, while a serviceable piezo is really no match for the Baggs/Mills combo w/a blender.

They seem like fine guitars not priced ridiculously out of the market. And they look great, too.
