Ti ringrazio per il tuo interesse. Se tu non sai bene l'inglese, cioe'  non capisci bene la descrizione di sotto, non esitare a chiedermi qualsiasi domanda in italiano!! Parlo io italiano (ma non molto bene), quindi provo di risponderti nella lingua vostra/ in italiano!! Grazie.
 
 
This auction is for a SH-1000 made in 1980 by Matsumoku.
Judging from the serial number, this one was made in 1980.
 
It features a unique neck through semi-hollow body construction.
Through neck construction offers superb sustain.
 
Aria made a upper range model, "SH-1000" at the same time.
The only difference between SH-1000 is that SH-1000 has built in 18Volt Noise Killer circuit and 3 way filter switch. Apart from the circuit, they had the same specs.
 
 
Matsumoku  was one of the best Japanese guitar manufacturer, having buit accurate replica models for Aria (Arai Gakki) and for other Japanese brands. They also made Epiphone guitars from early 70s to mid 80s too.

 !!!IMPORTANT!!!
++TERMS/CONDITION OF ITEM++
Please read the following items before bidding or purchasing. If you don't accept all of them then please do not bid or purchase.
 
Condition of the guitar:
Almost all of the guitars in my store are not a brand new, but a used one, so they wont always be in "PERFECT" condition. This can be especially true of "VINTAGE" guitars that have had many years of use and because of this they can sometimes have issues with playability, so for many reasons they may need care and maintenance before reaching an optimal playing condition. Please read the following detailed information that should always be considered when buying a used guitar.
 
*Neck
Nowadays a lot of guitar players know the term "JV" (Japan Vintage) and that the values of guitars made in and around the JV era are getting higher. I am glad and proud as a Japanese person that these guitars were made by expert craftsmen with selected materials and I totally agree with the reputation that these guitars have earned. However, in Japan, there is a significant humidity difference through the year which can have a bad influence on the materials in guitars if they are not well kept & carefully maintained. Additionally these guitars were often purchased by beginners or students and can tend to be poorly treated without ever having any maintenance. Sometimes they are stored away for ages after a very short period of use, as a result it is often the case that they have issue's about the neck.
 
I have played guitar for many years and all the guitars in my store were listed only after I checked & played them personally. All of the guitars in my store passed the normal standards/my standards unless particularly stated otherwise.
However that does not mean "perfect" condition as most guitars in the world have some issue be it a scratch or a break.  Additionally, the pressure change, humidity change and change in temperature have a bad influence on the guitars during the shipping or after arriving in your country so they may need some adjustment before playing.
 
*Frets
As the guitars are used the frets are worn more or less. I cannot say 70% or 80% left or something like that,,,,,because who can count the degree in a precise way? So please check the degree by the pictures.  If  the guitar needs refreting or if there is any defect with the frets (judging by my standards)  it will be stated in the description.  
 
*(Fret /String) Buzz
I check the Fret (String) Buzz by picking normally with light gauge strings (009-046), adjusting the bottom string height (low E) to 2.00mm and the top string height (high E) to 1.7mm
The guitars are used, so slight buzz could occur. If the fret buzz of the guitar is above the normal standard, the detail is described in the description of the guitar.
Anyway, how you feel the fret buzz depends on the player, so any requests to settle repair fee is not accepted.
 
*Cosmetic condition
As the guitars are used, they might have a number of dents, scratches, blemishes, chips and so on. Unless they are in mint or near mint condition, you cannot describe all of them, so please judge the condition by the pictures.
 
*Electrical parts
ALL the electrical parts work fine unless there is a particular fault in which case it will be mentioned in the description, but they might have a slight scratchy sound.
 
*Tax and duties
As stated above, the auction winner or the buyer is responsible for any and all applicable taxes and duties levied by their government.
Before placing a bid or clicking "Buy it now" button,  please enquire with your local customs for detailed information.

 
*Return
Please check the guitar within two days of it being delivered to you.
If it differs significantly from the description I will accept the return.
Payment made for returned goods and the outward shipping fee you paid will be refunded to you within three business days after the guitar is returned and checked by me on received. Please note that any return freight charges, taxes &/or duties you pay for returning an item are not settled.
 
*Insurance for transportation
The insurance of EMS would cover any damage, loss or the robbery/theft of an item during transportation.
The EMS insurance reimbursements might take more than a month to process.
