Very sorry, without you permission, I opened up this thread. Maple was used in 50' - 70' for so-so classical guitars in Japan. My KONO 1956 (Maestro Masaru Kohno had labeled KONO till mid 1960') has curly maple body and back. Terada started from a classical model in 50' so I guess maybe a half-century back. I will let you know of her identity when I hear from her birth palce.
For your reference, here is my Kono 1956 of which I bought in a net acution two years ago. She was shabby and damaged. She has a beautiful tiger pattern, curly maple.
Here is her first song "Sad tune" with me.
I asked Maestro Masaki Sakurai, successor of the worldly famous Kohno factory, to fix her back. She came back in a good shape. I asked her 2nd surgery. She is now under overhauling in her birth place.
I wish my Terada has a similar medicare by her family members.
Have a nice holiday season
