Every element of a Takamine guitar contributes to the high quality tone – even the construction of the fretboard. Crafted by a laser-guided fret finishing system that levels and crowns each fret to within 0.0001” of dead-on, Takamine fretboards are made with precision, which makes all the difference when it comes to sound. Rather than make any radical departures, Takamine make many small changes that add up to a significant difference in volume, balance and richness. Takamine soundboards are braced and voiced by hand—by tapping each top, a skilled luthier knows just how to shape the braces for the best possible response.
