While high quality tone woods and a player’s natural feel are hardly unusual in the acoustic world, Takamine guitars have just as much of a reputation for precision-made electronics and attention to detail. The best cuts of spruce, rosewood, mahogany and maple have gone into the assured and consistent construction techniques at Takamine. Whether you need an on-board tuner or simply a natural augmented amplification of your tone via an easily-edited pickup system, there are very definitely models for you.
The Takamine G series is perhaps the best known range of the company’s guitars, straddling they do an affordable price and a superb quality of acoustic. The Takamine EG523SC, EG440SC and EG260C are all variations on a theme that spans dreadnoughts, cutaways and jumbos, and the full range offers up a wide choice of solid tonewoods too.
There are of course also custom and limited ranges – Takamine has long been known for its artistic streak, which sees sometimes subtle, sometimes flamboyant flair applied to rosettes, inlays and finishes. The consistency remains, but you’ll certainly still stand out at open mic night, and you’ll feel like you’re playing a unique companion with a Takamine guitar too.
It’s easy to get lost in the nostalgia of certain headstock names, but Takamine has always made a point of being at the forefront of intricate, intriguing design. It’s why we think you’ll love them so much, and why we stock a comprehensive range.
