I’ve traveled with my guitar all over the world. It has been in a hard guitar case thousands of miles on countless airplanes, trains, buses and taxis.
It has also traveled in a padded case just down the street to a gig or the local guitar store.
In both cases (ha! unintentional pun) my guitar made it safely to my destination.
Founded in 1962 in Japan, Takamine has become one of the most well-known acoustic guitars all across the world. Over the years their guitars have been played by the likes of Garth Brooks, Tommy Emmanuel and Bruno Mars among many others.
Ever time I walk into a guitar store I know without a doubt that there will be Takamine guitars hanging on the wall for me to play. And I love to play them (well, I love to play pretty much any guitar).
One of my very first guitars was a Fender acoustic back when I was 8 years old. Most of my guitar-playing foundation was laid on a beginner Fender acoustic guitar like the Fender FA-100.
Fender is a great, well-known name in the guitar-making industry. They’ve been around since the late 1930’s and although their roots are in the electric guitar, they’ve been in the acoustic guitar business for decades.
