Takamine & Hirade Guitars No Longer Available in USA
Sadly Takamine Japan and the USA distributor, KMC (Fender) have not been able to resolve their differences and new shipments of Takamine and Hirade guitar are not forthcoming. We still have a couple Hirade TH5C and G series classicals in our Honolulu shop but will stop selling them online until further notice. If the parties involved are unable to reach an agreement I suspect Takamine will take over distribution or find a new stateside distributor.

The Takamine G124 and G128S series were top sellers for years. Why? Great tone, playability and lifetime warranty at an affordable price. Now Takamine one ups itself with timely updates to the line: GC1-NAT for quality minded budget pickers, GC3-NAT with solid spruce top and the deluxe GC5-NAT with solid spruce top and rosewood back and sides. Check it out!
FREE SHIPPING on Takamine & Hirade Pro Series!
We are proud to announce free shipping to the Continental USA and Hawaii on all Takamine and Hirade Pro series guitars (made in Japan models), including special orders, and select G Series. Currently this offer does not include budget instruments, albeit those items incur only a $20 shipping charge, far below actual shipping cost.

Buying a new instrument
is a critical step for the novice guitarist. A basic
knowledge of the instrument and an assessment of your
musical goals will help you make a wise purchase, a
purchase you can enjoy for years, perhaps even a
lifetime. Walking into a shop without a basic
understanding of the instrument and your goals is a
formula for disappointment. Read Professor Peter Kun
