"Bizen Works" is a guitar workshop in Kasugai, Aichi. The owner is Sakai Yukihiro, a Japanese male guitar artisan who established the workshop in 2016 July. By the way, Bizen means a district in Okayama. He came from Okayama and then named so.
Surprisingly, he had belonged to Kanda Shokai as a Zemaitis custom shop manager before got independent. Zemaitis is a high-graded guitar brand in the United Kingdom. For the highest designs and graceful sound, love many popular guitarists like Hisashi (Glay), Eric Clapton, Ronnie Wood and Hotei Tomoyasu.
As you know, artisans must forever go through trial and error. In guitar, each uses the different material wood. Can be skillful, they are eternally tied with trial and error and unfamiliar with routine ones.
Trial and error have independent artisans unsafe. If they belonged to a company, errors cannot make them fired and lose their property. However, when they are independent, an error may become a death-blow because it's connected directly with their earnings.
In other words, we can believe Sakai's independent since he's sure of his skill and what he builds.
As mentioned above, guitars are all different each other because each uses the different material wood. So you have to try to play if you desired to meet your best partner instrument. Of course, you can try at "Bizen Works." I'd like you to do if you could have a chance to visit.
