Whilst I love him as an actor, of late I realise I love him more when he is holding a guitar, whether in a concert or doing promotions or just a photoshoot. Any guitar, since I am not an expert in guitar but I personally prefer him with an electric guitar. Again, not an expert so any electric guitar will do. I have found the following pictures, both good and bad quality related to this specific topic when I was trawling the internet for pictures. Frankly I can't remember the source links but I do remember they were from Facebook and some blogs. I am still looking to add into this collection of mine, that is of Masha and guitars. I do have some personal collection of scans of him with his guitar during the recent 2009 concerts but I can't reveal those since they were given to me on a personal level, not to be shared around by blog. However those are the very pictures that inspired me in looking for more pictures like that. You can see that pictures I mentioned as my blog's background image.  I also wish I can categorise these under specific year but since I am not an expert on all things Masha such as timeline, I'd rather leave it as it is.

Just in case you would like to look for this post or similar posts again, just look for the label "SPECIAL PICTURES" somewhere left or right of this post.

"ESP ANGEL Classic V - the 'wings" that Takamizawa-san (THE ALFEE) gave him after Shin Domoto Kyoudai" - woahhh!! He did got the guitar he requested. When will he ever use it to play or is it gonna be in his future Fukuyama Masaharu's Guitar Collection Museum?

By Mashamasha about his first guitar;


That is the first guitar he bought when he was in high school, but not his first guitar. He bought his first guitar in secondary school [Source]. He bought his first guitar at 3,000 yen and used it for a while. He then didn't like its appearance so he took out the pickup part and re-painted it. Unfortunately after this re-make the guitar produced weaker sound so he resold it to his "kouhai" at 30,000 yen. Masha explained the mark up is for his painting work. At highschool, he bought that Aria Pro II at 100,000 yen. He said he did dish-washing part-time job to earn the money. He used it during his whole high school life and then brought it with him when coming to Tokyo. He said he still has this guitar, so it is the one in the book!
