Happy New Year to all! Hope that 2020 is shaping up to be a great year for everyone :)

Here are a couple of recently-released videos which I think are a must-see for Takamine Enthusiasts:

1. Takamine factory tour by premier guitar: https://youtu.be/A4xLqbbnYDw Released just yesterday - almost 40 mins covering every aspect of how our guitars are built. There are also some very interesting closeups of the new 2020 limited edition, 'Peace'. Hosted by Tom Waters from Takamine USA, who is a font of knowledge!

2. Takamine setup video by Makoto Terasaki, posted by AstringsUK: https://youtu.be/LpmPJ2ivtZ0 One of Takamine's chief designers, Mr Terasaki is also 'guitar tech to the stars' - in other words he's the man they send when Jon Bon Jovi's guitar needs to absolutely 100%. In this video he shows how to set up a GN90CE to factory specs. The most interesting thing is that he shows how to lower the action, firstly be removing the shims under the saddles and then by lowering the saddles by sanding from the TOP - as you know the G-series pickup is integral to the saddles and thus they cannot be lowered by removing material from the bottom where they contact the bridge.

These videos are testaments to the incredible attention to detail and pride with which our guitars are made. They are also sure to induce GAS, you have been warned :D

Thank you for the video, I am greatly pleased to learn this information about my Takamines (TF340es bg and a P6JC BSB). It is really neat to be able to see the actual guitars going through the work stations and the craftsmen making each one. thanks again ! F Hase
