Takamine’s road from a small family-run company begun in the foothills of Japan to a major player in the acoustic guitar world is one paved with innovations in technology and great attention to detail in the fine art of guitar making. In 1962, guitar playing became a popular pastime in Japan and with that the small artisanal guitar maker located at the foot of Mount Takamine became a phenomenal success and took on the name of place it was birthed. From earnest beginnings, the family company surged to 60 employees and became a leading builder of classical guitars and mandolins. Trained by master luthier Kohno, Takamine brought on Mass Hirade who elevated the brand to its current level.
