“To those players who have supported me"

I have long wanted to work freely, leaving my own personal mark on the world of guitar-making. Now, working solo, I am able to pursue the sound I am after and it is a great pleasure to be able to offer you my work. Keep your eye on Yokoyama Guitars! “

Fourth Acoustic Festival in Osaka September 29~30 2007
Yokoyama Guitars was at the Fourth Acoustic Festival in Suita in Osaka (Japan). Many thanks to all those who came. Luthiers from all over Japan were there to make a very fruitful event. Yokoyama Guitars displayed Koa, Mahogany and Camatillo guitars with shell decoration. Visitors were able to check out the difference in sound according to wood-type. As at the Healdsburg Guitar Festival, visitors were impressed by the rich sound and bold grain of the Camatillo model. Also popular was the very light Mahogany model.

Yokoyama Guitars was also present at this biannual festival in Santa Rosa, California.
We were able to show large numbers of people our guitars at this big event with luthiers from all over the world. Here we displayed some classically simple models without showy shell, etc. decoration, highlighting the combinations of woods. The 2 step finger board and sound hole with rosette inlay were popular.
