- Promenade Music is proud to have been a K. Yairi guitar dealer since the late 1980's.

Born in 1932, Kazuo Yairi's workshop is based in the beautiful mountainside area of Kani, Japan.

His handmade guitars have been owned by the likes of  Sir Paul McCartney and Carlos Santana.

Kazuo died in 2014, but his guitar building workshop continues under the team of master craftsmen luthiers he carefully chose and trained many years ago.

In an era when many guitar manufacturers employ computers, lasers, and robotics in a race to produce more guitars faster, K. Yairi’s genius is to rely solely on the use of hands and hand-tools.

“Good guitars are made of good wood, by good craftsmen” is a great saying to sum K. Yairi up.

The guitars have outstanding sound, craftmanship, visual appeal, and a price-target that make these beautiful instruments a real value-for-money winner.

The woods are hand-selected and air dried (not kiln dried) for five to ten years.

Logs are cut in the on-site sawmill and all guitars have hand fitted dovetailed neck joints.

Kazuo's plaque in the workshop which reads "There is no other way of surviving except through high quality" still hangs there and his legacy lives on.
