"The Suzuki Violin Company was founded in 1887 by Masakichi Suzuki and has been making guitars since the early 1900s. After World War II, the company was restructured into two parts: Suzuki Violin Company, which later became Kiso Suzuki Violin Company (run by one of Masakichi's sons, Kikuo) and Suzuki Violin Manufacturing Company was renamed Nagoya Suzuki Violin Company (run by another of Masakichi's sons, Umeo). In 1951, Kiso Suzuki started making guitars. Kiso Suzuki often made acoustic and classical guitars for other brands and dealers, including: Iwama Trading; CSL Gypsy; Tomson; Kansas; Takeharu; Halifax. Kiso Suzuki finally stopped marketing in 1987 and ESP bought its wood machines and supplies.
