While doing a little research into Suzuki guitars for a possible repair/purchase I came across these pictures on a facebook group dedicated to Suzuki guitar fans. Apparently these old Suzuki guitars are amongst the best for made in Japan quality in the 1970s and get high praises from those who own and play them.
These 2 guitars, a Kiro Suzuki and a Grand Guitar that were quite obviously made around the same time in the same place have what is called a Relative Sound Hole according to the label on the Grand Guitar. I admit, I'm a little puzzled by this one. I understand offset sound holes, and sound holes on the upper bout, but what's the advantage here, other than to give the guitar an odd crop-circle-esque appeal?
