'Tokyo Wagakki' has closed it's business (T_T)

After 130 years of making shamisen, the workshop ‘Tokyo Wagakki’ has closed it’s business.

I can’t believe what I just read. I was saving up… :sob:

Do you have a link for the source on this? I just checked their website and didn’t see anything about closing down.

It’s at the top of several Bachido pages:


Oh okay, yeah I hadn’t thought to check the store pages. That’s a shame for sure.

Oh no, that’s very sad to hear :frowning: Those shamisen really looked amazing.
Now the question is, are the other shamisen in the ‘more shamisen’ window still available? I think they’re from a different shop right?
