Kiso Susuki & Co made beautifully crafted replicas of Martin Guitars. This Kiso Susuki WE-200 is an almost perfect replica of the Martin D28 Guitar, using the exact same build techniques and quality materials. It’s a 1971 guitar according to the info I found online. I repaired some minor problems and put Elixir Nanoweb strings, and simply sounds amazing.
They called these guitars the « Lawsuit Era » guitars, because they were so well crafted and so similar to original Martin’s, that Martin & Co threatened with legal actions against the Japanese builders.
