Thank you for visiting our WEB site.
My father, Yukinobu Chai, started the guitar crafting about 55 years ago at Tamagawa Gakuen, Tokyo Japan. He was interested in making the violin when he was a student. Since then, he added many strings instruments. In 1960's, it was very popular for Japanese to play the classic guitar. This was influenced by famous movie "Jeux interdits"
My father never get a lesson from other violin builder. He just learned all from book and real violins. For Guitars, Of course, he never made it before. He has transferred some constructions from Piano. It made Chai Guitar sound & tone "
He was always trying to reach his aimed tome "Sound that spread richly".
I always look at his works beside him. Naturally I started to help him. Well, it was about 20 years ago. He passed away several years ago. Now, I'm doing his work and trying to establish the Chai Guitar Brand worldwide.
