Japanese Made Koto 箏 Stringed Zither

Here is a vintage Japanese made Koto (箏) stringed zither. Constructed from Paulownia wood, this 21-stringed zither is in very excellent all original condition and includes the original hard case as well as the original tuning tool. Used by such artists as David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Paul Gilbert, Queen, and even Dr. Dre, this exotic Asian instrument has achieved a particularly special place in modern music, and offers an extremely unique voice, not otherwise achieved with other stringed zither-like instruments. This 21-string 64″ long Koto is in remarkable condition, and includes the original hard case, which has a vintage yellow luggage tag, and the original tuning tool.
