Looking for info on Shinano Model 35

I have a Shinano Model 35 that I found in a second hand store.  Only info I can find is that they were sold by Daion along with Yamaki guitars in Japan.  Does anyone know anything about Shinano guitars?  Did I find a gem or just junk?  It's in excellent shape with very little sign of use, and it has a beautiful sound. 


Shinano 35

I can't find any more information than you already have: they seem to be well thought of Japanese made classical guitars - mainly distributed within Japan. I'll add pages for the Shinano brand and the model 35, maybe someone else will post some more details.

If you have any pictures of the Shinano 35 you are willing to share, e-mail them to me at [email protected] and I'll add them to the page,
