Each and every one of the leading luthiers can name their contribution to the guitar industry, and in Takamine's case, it's the integrated preamp and EQ. That was the innovation that made acoustic-electric guitars possible, so it's no surprise that you'll find a lot of those in this section. And there are plenty of straight-up acoustic Takamine guitars as well, so no matter what you're looking for, you should be able to find it here. With instruments for all budgets and skill levels, Takamine is a great example of just how much variety can come from a single manufacturer. If you're interested in joining the ranks of Toby Keith, Bon Jovi and all the other artists who play a Takamine guitar, there's no time like the present to make it happen! For beginners and hobbyists in need of an affordable option, the G Series GD20 Dreadnought Solid Top Acoustic Guitar is a fantastic starting point. Designed for rich tone and above-average playability, this big guitar handles intricate picking and full, strummed chords with equal ease. Maybe your style is a little more classical? In that case, look for a Takamine with nylon strings, such as the Pro Series 3 Folk Nylon Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Capable enough for advanced players and performers, it's stunning from top to bottom - visually and tonally. In fact, you can expect this high level of craftsmanship from anything in Takamine's pro series, including the Pro Series 7 Dreadnought, which comes in standard and cutaway body styles to give you the choice between increased range and tone depth. In the hands of guitarists from Bruno Mars to Garth Brooks to Simple Plan, Takamine guitars are making waves on stages all over the world. However you like to play and whatever your genre may be, there's the right Takamine waiting in this section. Go for an acoustic model to stick with tradition, or an acoustic-electric guitar for the ability to play any sound system and any venue - the choice is yours to make.
