What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent/Mint

WOAH!  We didn't even know Takamine -made- guitars like this!  And we very, very rarely see any used guitar from anyone, anywhere show up this clean.  With a comfortable C neck, warm, dramatic tone (yep, that's Brazilian alright!), and a state of the art pickup system, this Takamine has thoroughly wowed us all and completely re-normed our expectations from this manufacturer!

Manufacturer's Description from Takamine

Takamine has held a supply of the coveted Brazilian rosewood for over 15 years waiting for just the right model to take advantage of the unmatched tonal properties of this rare and very special tonewood. This collector level guitar is also stage and studio ready, as it is equipped with a new electronic system that matches the Takamine Palathetic™ pickup with an on-board class A G line driver mounted discreetly to the heel block inside the guitar.

About Manufacturer

Takamine Guitars have over 50 years of history dedicated to innovation and improvement to the art and craft of guitarmaking.

What first began as a small family business has evolved into one of the leading guitar manufacturers In the world, depended upon by some of the best players and biggest names in the music industry.

So what's the deal? Why are there so many Takamine players? We'd like to think that it's because we've earned your respect. Takamine has made technological advancements that have surpassed other guitar makers. Takamine prides itself in their dedication and loyalty to fine luthiership and it is shown through each Instrument the company makes.

Takamine had its early beginnings while guitar playing and music was gaining popularity in Japan during the early 60's. As their business grew they saw the need to develop their skills and attract design and manufacturing talent. One of the most important additions to the company was one Mr. Mass Hirade.

Hirade joined Takamine in 1968, and made great improvements upon design and build quality, and set forth with his staff to energize and strengthen the business. The factory began producing their world class "Classical" that to this day still carry the Hirade name. Through Hirade's dedication and commitment to Takamine, he was able to begin an overseas trading business in 1975. Takamine Guitars were able to reach out to guitar players around the world. Takamine was finally placed in the hands of musicians who had only heard about their great sound and fine craftsmanship.
