Takamine guitars are built by hand. Our experienced craftsmen train their apprentices slowly to maintain a consistent level of quality, year after year. Examine the detail work on a Takamine. It’s an elegant example of the guitar maker’s art. A Takamine sounds as good as it looks. Choice woods from all over the world go into our guitars: spruce, rosewood, jacaranda, mahogany. Each brace is shaped and carefully fit to its soundboard to capture the warm bass and sparkling treble that comes only from a hand-crafted wood guitar…
