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.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (25 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Best Buy, Best Value, Best Acoustic you will ever play!"
Sound: Sounds amazing and in my opinion it sounds better than most $1,000 Taylors and Martins. A little bit of buzz but some elixers fix that. Awesome high and low end with the high end not overpowering the low end. Feature: I wish it came with a pickup but other than that everything fits and everything comes together perfectly to create one sick guitar for the price. Ease of Use: Very VERY easy to play. Easy to tune and maintains its tune for weeks. Neck is very smooth and frets are spaced perfectly. Great for beginners or advanced players. Quality: Has no blemishes what so ever and seems pretty durable so far. I try to take excellent care of all my guitars so it hasnt been dropped or anything yet, but it seems well built and very sturdy. Value: EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT guitar for the price! I was a little hesitant that it was as good as the reviews claimed it was but I bought it anyway and I was beyond surprised at how amazing this guitar is! I would have expected to pay well over $500 for a guitar like this but I got it for $299. Superb buy! Manufacturer Support: I have not had to contact Takamine for anything yet and based on the guitar I dont think I will ever have to. The Wow Factor: Looks amazing. The finish on this guitar is perfect! It is not to dark, but not to bright and the gold tuners look sexy! Not a very flashy guitar but when you look at it you cant take your eyes off it. The cutaway looks perfect on this guitar as well. All the little details come together perfectly. Overall: I do not plan on buying another acoustic guitar for quite sometime after this buy. I could not ask for anymore than what this guitar has. Everything about it is perfect and I honestly don't want to buy another acoustic guitar because it is going to be virtually impossible to get any better than this guitar.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great sounding, good looking guitar not to pass up"
Sound: This guitar sounds amazing! My reasoning behind purchasing it was first the great reviews that everyone gave it and second that I owned a cheaper Takamine years ago and it sounded great for a $150 guitar. This guitar does not disappoint. My fellow musician friend comment on how great it sounds every time I start playing. For the price I highly recommend buying this beauty. It's nothing flashy in the looks department but it still a great looking guitar. The action is nice. Neck is nice. Cutaway is great. Haven't run into any string buzzing problems yet either. GREAT GUITAR- BUY IT! Feature: No accessories included. Ease of Use: Being an electric player it's still a bit tough to fret full chords quickly but with a little practice it will be nothing. Quality: For the price this one goes to 11! Manufacturer Support: No problems as of yet.
