Azumi is a very obscure Japanese guitar company, once I've written that they were (most likely) made in the Chushin Gakki factory, I've exhausted all I know about it... But looking at the sober design of this Azumi Nanyo, the neck-through-body construction and the active dual blades humbuckers, I would say it's one of these pre-metal no-nonsense guitars from the 1980s and probably a good guitar.
I love its pointy symmetrical double cutaway, better than both the Gibson and Yamaha SGs, and its transparent black finish. When everybody is all about either super classic vintage guitars or bizarre ones, I have a soft spot for these MIJ almost vintage models - and this is one of the best I've ever seen...
