For more than half a century, 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 performing guitarists 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 journey that led to the phenomenal success that is the modern Takamine company.
High-volume builders use production machinery to speed up their output, but speed isn’t the issue for us—it’s the quality of the instrument.We’re proud of the level of our craftsmanship, and we invite you to see it for yourself by taking a close look at our instruments, part by part.
We remain the oldest incorporated, continuously family-owned & operated music string manufacturer in the world and produce the finest instrument strings.
Schatten Design's continuing quest to build the finest pickups, preamps, and related accessories in the world has produced some truly fine new products. Listening to our customers, as we always have, has helped to provide us with a greater insight into the types of pickups and products that are needed. We produce some of the world's finest piezo transducer pickups in a small workshop with just a handful of skilled pickup builders. Each pickup is carefully handcrafted to our exacting standards and each one is tested individually to make sure that it is as perfect as we can make it.
Our goal is to provide great sounding pickups. It is not easy or simple to build transducers that are 'transparent' in their sound quality.....pickups that allow the true sound of the instrument to come through. We promise that you will be more than satisfied with our pickups. You have my word on that.
