Handmade during Takamine’s Golden Years.
Solid cedar top. Indian rosewood laminate sides and back. Mahogany neck. Like new. No flaws to speak of. Intonation is perfect up and down the neck. This guitar speaks loudly. It’s like a concert grand of classical guitars. I can’t guarantee it was built by Mr. Hirade, but my research indicates the Model 1601 was either built by or supervised by him. I have collected many fine guitars over the years and have too many to play. I am slowly divesting my collection. Ships in cardboard case. Will add hard case if you add $75.
