This beautiful instrument was made by the Nagoya Suzuki Violin Company. It's an acoustic electric guitar with cutaway. Those who are fans of Nagoya Suzuki Guitars will appreciate the excellent craftsmanship of this guitar. I'm guessing but I believe this guitar was made in the late 1980's.
Based on the serial number, this may be one of the last model's made by Nagoya Suzuki. The guitar is 39.5 in length. The action is perfect(see photo).
Intonation at the 12th fret is perfect. It has a truss rod, and neck to body connection is solid. It appears to have a solid top spruce, but I can't confirm that. It has an unusual sound board bracing that gives the guitar a slight arch top effect, like a violin. The electronics work perfectly and very loud.
There's a 3 band equalizer, volume and "presence" knobs. The guitar comes with a battery in the pre-amp. There are two blemishes, one on the left shoulder and one on the corner of the headstock - see photos.
The frets are worn but none of the strings buzz. Someone really loved playing this guitar.
Otherwise, this guitar is like new. Not bad for a guitar almost 30 years old. It's strung with new light strings so it plays like an electric guitar - real easy, but with a sweet acoustic voice. I collect guitars and I have too many. And it breaks my heart but I have to let this one go.
