Guitar travel - Yokohama, Japan

Friday, August 23, 2013


Subway, Yokohama
This trip to Japan is many fold. A break from the usual routine, network, award to be offiicial technician for all repairs/servicing of Yokinobu Chai's (maker of Niibori Guitars) guitars in Singapore, visit Mr Chai's and Mr Sumio/Testuo Kurosawa workshop and also to touch, see, play some historical guitars, '29 Santos Hernandez, '73 Hermann Hauser II, III, 2013 Greg Smallman, Ignacio Fleta, '71 Jose Romanillos, among many others. Last, but not least, the main excuse for this trip is to attend JGA Guitar Ensemble Competition - http://www.jsgec.net.

It's summer and it's hotter than Singapore. But awesome time for thirst-quenching summer fruits and perfect excuse for
beer!

Excuse me for not posting for a while. Expect more to come!
