Hello everyone.
I am poor at the English.

I was brought up in a neighborhood of Matsumoku.
Matsumoku becomes the park now.
It is a splendid company.
There was the Fujigen in the neighborhood, too.

Please watch collection of me.
http://www.geocities.jp/guitarofworld/newpage6.html
and My homepage.
http://www.geocities.jp/guitarofworld/main1.html
And the commentary book that I wrote.

Thanks.

Hello TAD39, yes, welcome!
Your English is good enough, don't worry :wink:
Very nice collection indeed.
No Vantage brand guitars there though. Pity :(

Did you write the 'Japan Vintage'- magazines? :eek2:

Greetings,
Kees (Holland)

Isn't it funny that we all here are discussing things that happened 30 years ago at your neighborhood ?

greetings from the austrian alps to the japanese alps,

Hello TAD 39 and welcome to the forum!
That is a beautiful collection of guitars you have.
I hope there is no traffic on your street. The thought of a truck coming around the corner is too scary! :eek2:

I am curious about the first picture. What exactly does it represent?

Barry (Canada)

click at the picture Barry, to enlarge it. Then you can read the inscription, chiseled into the stone of the park monument !!!

:lmfao:

Edit: I've checked the english (tourist) matsumoto HP. Very interesting city! Especially for wintersport lovers like me.
But I couldn't find infos 'bout the matsumoku park! :dunno:

Everyones a comedian!! I'd like to know what it means, too!!

Welcome TAD - that is indeed a lovely collection; when you get tired of that RS 600, I can give it a good home!! :D

Hey TAD39,
With my mouth wide open I've watched the more than 150 guitars at your site.
I've looked at your repair work too! Fascinating!!!!!!!
Do you run the matsumoto guitar museum ?
