Like music, guitar making is more than just having the parts fit together. There’s a right way and a wrong way – and it takes artistic commitment to make sure the right way prevails.
At Takamine, we work together a lot like your band probably works together. We talk ideas out, we state our case, we argue some, and stand up for our beliefs. In the end, we come together. Over the past 50 years, guitar players around the world have given us their respect. We hope to keep earning it by crafting the best instruments we can in the most artful way we know.

THINK ACOUSTIC. LIVE ELECTRIC. PLAY TAKAMINE.

HISTORY
For half a century now, Takamine has proudly dedicated itself to the art of fine guitar craftsmanship. Its longstanding devotion to innovation and continual improvement has placed it among the world’s premier acoustic guitar makers, with truly fine instruments that are the first choice of players worldwide.
With humble beginnings in 1959 as a small family-run guitar shop nestled at the foot of Mount Takamine in the central Japanese town of Sakashita, the fledgling company took the mountain’s name in 1962 and began in earnest the remarkable journey that led to the phenomenal success that is the modern Takamine company. As guitar playing gained great popularity in Japan in the 1960s, Takamine grew in size and stature as a quality instrument maker. With the 1968 arrival of talented luthier Mass Hirade, Takamine guitars

TAKAMINE STANDS FOR ... GREAT SOUND AND PEERLESS CRAFTSMANSHIP

made great strides in design and manufacturing, and it was due in large part to Hirade’s great energy, dedication and commitment that Takamine guitars became available worldwide in 1975. Legions of guitarists then began to discover the richly rewarding musical experience of playing a Takamine guitar. Takamine pioneered the development of acousticelectric guitars in the late 1970s, introducing many innovations that remain at the heart of modern acoustic-electric guitar

design and setting standards for excellence that endure to this day. It is this legacy of integrity and acclaim that makes players around the globe rely on finely crafted Takamine guitars. Their respect and dedication is the real-world proof that Takamine stands for, as it always has, great sound and peerless craftsmanship in every instrument. That’s why there are so many Takamine players, and that’s why the guitar world now celebrates 50 years of fine Takamine guitars. Here’s to the next 50 years.

LIMITED EDITION 50TH ANNIVERSARY T50TH

The Japanese word michi, meaning “a path or course to follow over a distance,” provides the theme of this very special limited-edition instrument. The growing vine motif adorning the fretboard, headstock and pickguard symbolizes the long and vibrant pathway traveled by Takamine over the decades — an elegantly striking design that beautifully commemorates our 50th anniversary and appears only on the T50TH, never to be repeated.

This darkly splendid dreadnought cutaway has all the beauty, power and projection you’d expect from a guitar of its substantial size and limited-edition Takamine design excellence. Its beautiful spreading-vine motif complements premium features including a high-grade spruce top with scalloped X bracing, solid rosewood back, rosewood sides and bridge, mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, gold rosette and headstock logo, gold hardware, and onboard Palathetic™ pickup and CTP-2 CoolTube® preamp for powerful onstage presence and performance.

I always want the best sound I can “ get, as I’m sure everybody does. My Takamine instruments enable me to do just that – get the best acoustic guitar sounds possible.”

“Always clear as a bell, with tons of definition to cut through even the densest of mixes.” 

Whether I’m playing delicate “ acoustic shows or roaring rock – caressing them or manhandling them – they deliver! Takamine guitars are built and sound better than ever.”

“The recording studio is the toughest quality benchmark for any guitar. The Tradesman passes with flying colors.”

CLASSICAL & HIRADE
Master luthier Mass Hirade was a driving force at Takamine; joining the company in 1968 and becoming its president in the mid-1970s. A brilliant guitar maker, he created innovative instruments of markedly superior volume, tone and playability, and it is in honor of his legacy that one of the most acclaimed Takamine guitar families is named.
Steeped in tradition, classical guitars remain a vibrant and vital presence in today’s music, and Takamine has long gathered acclaim for its own finely crafted contributions to the form. Built with the nuanced and full-bodied voice of that age-old tradition, Takamine classical guitars also incorporate equally nuanced technological innovations that make adding a nylon-string guitar to your onstage arsenal a richly rewarding sonic experience. Today’s Takamine classical guitars continue a truly fine heritage of classical excellence, including the “H” and “TH” Hirade models named after the great man himself.

ELECTRONICS
PALATHETIC™
The key to the amplified superiority of Takamine acoustic-electric guitars is the Palathetic pickup. Using six individually shielded piezoelectric elements (one for each string), the Palathetic pickup is no ordinary under-saddle transducer. Takamine’s design, in fact, boasts a dozen times the element mass of typical undersaddle pickups, resulting in a more fully realized amplified sound. All six pickup elements penetrate the bridge plate, soundboard and bridge to make direct contact with the saddle, creating a distinctive sonic linkage with the string. The pickup casing is attached to the guitar top and bridge mechanically, creating a solid sonic linkage with the soundboard. The result of this design is a signal that has the defined articulation of each individual string and the rich harmonic content delivered by the resonating soundboard, which means a full, complete and accurately realized acoustic guitar tone at high sound pressure levels.

ACOUSTIC DI+
Specifically designed for acoustic guitarists, the Acoustic DI+ enables amazing control over your sound, with features including a level-controllable effects loop, mute circuit and gain boost. It can also power a CoolTube® preamp, eliminating the need for batteries.

CTP-2 COOLTUBE
The CTP-2 CoolTube, the first and only onboard tube preamp for acoustic guitar, produces a rich, full sound. It takes its name from innovative Takamine technology that runs its 12AU7 dual-triode vacuum tube at very low voltages — so low that it stays cool to the touch — with variable tube tone that can be adjusted from bright and brilliant to thick and warm. The full-range EQ section uses shelving filters to sculpt bass and treble frequencies, with semiparametric shaping control over the midrange. A control knob adjusts the center frequency from 200Hz to 8.5kHz, and a pinpointprecise onboard chromatic tuner is standard equipment.

TLD PICKUP
The Takamine Line Driver (TLD) is the most elementary form of electronics you could want for your acoustic guitar. Discreetly unobtrusive, it sits unseen inside your guitar with minimal wiring and no need for cutting or drilling high-value tonewoods, buffering the pickup’s active signal and sending it clean and noise-free to your amplification setup. No onboard volume or tone controls necessary—the TLD is “preEQ’d” with mild bass and treble boost and a mid-frequency cut, resulting in natural amplified tone perfect for purists.

TRI-AX PICKUP
The Takamine Tri-Ax pickup is a magnetic body-sensing transducer designed to pair with the CoolTube® preamp, with the blend of the two controlled directly from the CoolTube.

TRADESMAN
Big concerts. Big amps. Big sound.
Concerts graduated from clubs and theaters to arenas and stadiums in the 1960s and ’70s. That meant that guitar sounds had to get bigger, posing new challenges for amplified acoustic guitar. Takamine readily took up these challenges, relying on its many years of real-world experience with working guitarists to update traditional guitar designs to meet the needs of new generations of players who demand more acoustic power and performance. This became the Takamine ethos — to build the hardest-working guitars for the hardest-working modern musicians. This in turn led to the Tradesman series. As premier tools of the trade, Tradesman guitars are instruments of impeccable craftsmanship, with beautiful solid tonewoods and the very latest in acoustic-electric performance features. As such, they are the perfect tools for the job and are beautiful examples of guitar design artistry.

THE HORSE HAS HAD QUITE A RIDE OVER THE PAST 20 YEARS.

GLEN HANSARD & "THE HORSE"
Oscar-winning songwriter and musician Glen Hansard bought his Takamine NP15 — dubbed “The Horse” — in a Dublin, Ireland, music shop in 1990. The Horse has had quite a ride over the 20 years since, serving first as Hansard’s street companion as he busked for a living on Grafton St. It was also present for Hansard’s formation of the Frames, which became one of Dublin’s most influential bands. The Horse’s working-class cred literally started to show as it worked harder and harder — where Hansard’s fingernails and pick fell naturally on the thinfinish cedar top, a sizable hole developed. So deep was Hansard’s bond with the guitar, however, that he simply kept playing it. Repair work eventually proved inevitable, however, and the Horse paid its first visit to a repair shop in 2009, where a loose brace was successfully fixed to stabilize the top (understandably, Hansard was a bit apprehensive at first, but he praised the work of luthier Bernie Tusko). Hansard’s equine-nicknamed NP15 was an early model in the Takamine Natural series, which featured guitars with solid cedar tops, no pickguard and a thin satin finish for maximum freedom of vibration. While the NP15 model hasn’t been available for some time now, a close relative carries on today in the elegant form of the ETN10C.

NATURAL
The sound of truth
The very essence of Takamine guitar craft is present in the Natural series — instruments that represent a union of forthright old-world design and meticulous modern craftsmanship. The select materials of the Natural series — such as solid cedar tops and solid mahogany backs — are chosen for true sonic excellence. Every element of their design and construction embodies heightened resonance and dynamics, from their sanspickguard tops to the freedom of vibration ensured by the restrained touch of their thin satin finishes.

NOUVEAU & SANTA FE
Favorites large and small
Maybe it’s the sound, or perhaps the fit. Our Nouveau and Santa Fe models reflect Takamine’s longstanding commitment to providing artists with the broadest selection possible. The Nouveau jumbo is a studio favorite that brims with personality while still leaving plenty of room in the mix, with a solid spruce top and choice of solid flame maple or mahogany back that deliver great presence and balance. Nouveau smallbody guitars are favorites from coffeehouses to arenas, with exclusive NEX/grand auditorium body designs that deliver focused sound with clear articulation and brilliance. The design of Takamine Santa Fe models embodies the rich traditions of the U.S. Southwest. These truly fine instruments feature rare wood and shell in stunning inlay work and exquisite rosettes crafted to the point of near painter-like artistry.

Let’s face it — you don’t go pro in the music business because the money is easy or because your parents consider it a growth industry and a wise career choice.
You do it because it is simply what you were born to do, and that’s that. You do it because you are called to walk into a club full of strangers with nothing but your music and your mojo and a mission to lead them on a journey. Easy? No. Worth it? Absolutely. We couldn’t agree more. That’s why wherever the joy of music intersects with serious business, there’s a headstock that says “Takamine.”

BODY SHAPES
THE DELICATE SOUNDBOARD BALANCE
Spruce and cedar soundboards have been used for well over a millennium, and the modern bracing system has been around for at least 150 years. We use a traditional “X” bracing pattern on our steelstring models, differently voiced for each application. Rather than make any radical departures, we make many small changes that add up to a significant difference in volume, balance and richness. Takamine soundboards are braced and voiced by hand — by tapping each top, a skilled luthier knows just how to shape the braces for the best possible response.

BODY TALK
With their many distinctive curves, guitar bodies accommodate a wide range of frequencies. Different body shapes favor different frequencies, giving them a distinct tonal character. Dreadnoughts are typically louder, with stronger lows. Smaller bodies, such as our NEX, tend to be more balanced. A thinner body may project less but sound more pleasing. Play as many sizes as you can with comfort and sound in mind. Your choice is very personal — what sounds and feels best to you.

IS THERE A PERFECT NECK SHAPE?
A century ago, the wide classical shape with a flat fingerboard was the only shape considered “proper,” but we’ve become more open-minded since then. Some players feel you can never be too thin, while others feel it’s far better to be fat. It’s that personal taste thing again. Takamine necks have an asymmetrical “C” shape — an ergonomic contour slightly thinner on the treble side of the neck so that it fits the natural shape of your hand. Overall, it’s thin from front to back and medium in width, with a gentle fingerboard arch. Perfectly comfortable.

THE FRET SECRET
Most guitar makers don’t give frets enough credit – or attention. A good fret job can help a player reach new heights. Examine the frets on a Takamine Tradesman. What you see is the work of a laser-guided fret finishing system that levels and crowns each fret to within 0.0001” of dead-on. Fret a note, notice how the string contacts the center line of the fret perfectly, and hear the clarity when you play. A good fret job can be the difference between a nice guitar and a great guitar.

APPOINTMENTS BY DELUXE
Takamine pioneered the use of uncommonly artistic and complex inlay work on guitars for working players. We’ve developed the art of design and the craft of precise inlay work far beyond the capabilites of most other guitar makers. Look closely at Takamine rosettes and inlays. Such meticulous handiwork is a clearly visible sign of our commitment to excellence in every element of our guitars.

SKIN DEEP AND MORE
Your Takamine is beautiful on the outside, but beauty is more than skin deep. Look inside and see for yourself — finely sanded braces and meticulously cut linings display a level of hand craftsmanship fast disappearing from modern guitars. There’s a century-old phrase from the arts and crafts movement: “Anything worth doing is worth doing well.” That spirit lives on today at Takamine.
