Report for Music China 2014
The Music China 2014 was held from Oct. 8th to 11th in Shanghai.
According to the information on the official website, 1,775 music product suppliers from 29 countries exhibited at the show this year.
Hosco had a booth as usual and displayed GOTOH, HOSCO parts, and HOSCO tools.
This time we displayed Japanese-made electric guitar kits.
The concept is “If you make the electric guitar kit with our Japanese-made parts by yourself, you will have your own guitar with similar specifications as commercially Japanese-made electric guitar has.
Moreover, the costs will be less expensive.
There are some options for finished bodies, finished necks, and hardware like tremolo units or bridges.
Some of our customers and visitors liked the concept very much.
Eventually, the options will be limited, but we are going to proceed with this project to produce the electric guitar kits on a commercial basis.
Also, our booth had been bustling with many Chinese visitors who would like to purchase our Japanese-made luthier tools.
“HOSCO” has been getting more popular in China year by year.
The following items were displayed at the show as reference exhibit.

Magnets are put on the inside of both edges, so you can keep small parts like screws in a safe place.

When you open it out again, you might see some wrinkles, but the wrinkles will be disappeared after a while.
The product on the photo is still a prototype, so a few modifications might be done.
Suzuki Mandolins
Recently, it seems that the Suzuki mandolins have been especially popular in Europe.
Japanese yen is weak,so the currency exchange rate might help the Europen buyers to purchase Japanese-made products like the Suzuki mandolins.
We can offer the Suzuki mandolins to you with excellent services.
