I am currently looking to sell my Abe Guitar 530, made by the Zen-On Music Co. and supervised byYasuo Abe

Solid Top
The label on this guitar says:
Abe Guitar
Supervised by Yasuo Abe
Zenon Music Co, Ltd
Made in Japan
And has a badge across it with Japanese Writing

Well, Yasuo Abe was not a guitar maker, and Zenon was not a guitar manufacturer.

Yasuo Abe was a guitarist. He was the first Japanese guitar student under Segovia and Pjohl in Italy. He won the Japan National Classical Guitar Concur in 1948 and became very famous in Japan. He licensed his name for a line of guitars sold by Zenon. In Japan he is referred to as Master Abe (1925 - 1999) and was a founder of the Japanese classical guitar world after World War II.

Zenon was (and is) a music products related distributor. Their line of Abe guitars was probably made by Hiyashi Gakki (according to the very little information available now).

About the guitar itself, this model 530 is in good condition but does have a few cosmetic blemishes. It has three markings and has never been dropped

Ive taken the guitar to a large music shop and managed to discover that the guitar is Valued at R6000 which is the lowest value out of my collection which has gotten to big now

Im hoping to find a buyer for the guitar, I am looking for anything over R2000 for the guitar, and it is a rather urgent sell. If anybody is interested contact me at [email protected] or on 0719674669
