Anybody ever heard of a Suzuki Three S?

Recommended Posts

It says Suzuki Three S on the headstock. Looks old, like seventies or so. Very nicely built. Action is acceptable -- no neck set or structural problems. Sounds pretty good too. Lets say I'm tempted to buy it. Anybody know anything about them?

I actually have one and it's my most neglected guitar. I paid $125 in a pawn shop for it about 12 years ago and gave it to someone as a bday gift. They gave it back to me about two weeks later. :) Not that it was unplayable, but they "couldn't bond with it" was the reason given.

 

Anyway, there it sits in the same corner, gathering dust, virtually unplayed, the bridge almost entirely separated from the top.

 

It's a Japanese Martin D28 knock off from the '70s or '80s.

 

One day it will make a good project guitar if I ever get around to it.

heard of them yes, see them all the time on line here but don`t own any. Not sure if they made any high end Three S stuff but the ones I see look to be all laminates. I own other Sukuzis that are all solid and love em, my 1948 is a gem as is my 1950.

I have a Suzuki Three-S. Had an inside brace re-glued, and an under bridge mic installed (same type as the Martin's). It's a Martin clone that Martin made them stop making. It's the best Acoustic guitar I've ever had. I also like my Dean Exotica.
