A MAGICIAN OF GUITAR ADJUSTMENT - Round Table Talk (Masaru Matano, Shiro Arai, Rikuro Hiyama) : Japan Music Trades Magazine (November 1972)

In the previous interview, Alan Wilcox mentioned techniques used by Mr Matano.  I asked Alan about it and he kindly let me know about the article he was referring to.

The following article "A MAGICIAN OF GUITAR ADJUSTMENT" first appeared  in "Japan Music Trades", a popular music industry magazine in Japan, in November 1972.  This article is available again on this blog courtesy of Japan Music Trades.  I am really grateful to Japan Music Trades for their generous and kind support.
