This white 12-string Aquarius AQ-1200 belonged until recently to Surfin' Lungs guitarist Chris Pearce and you can hear it on myspace.com/surfinlungs - on the song Hawai Stole my Baby -, also on some of their albums.
This blog is dedicated to Kawai Aquarius guitars and bass.
This series of instruments by Japanese brand Kawai - now exclusively making pianos and keyboards - was released in the late 70s and through the 80s. Though they have been at the time one more of these Japanese guitars, now they appear to have been underrated, and start to have their followers...
If you've ever inquired about these instruments, you've noticed that there is very little information about them on the net - and even Kawai seems to have erased their archives about their guitar years.
So I invite anybody with an history or documentation about the Aquarius to contribute to this database (to contact me please leave a comment).
