Takamine No.7 Classical Guitar, made in japan in 2001


What a wonderful guitar!!!

Beautiful looking.

Angelic sounding.

In immaculate condition.

 

The Takamine No.7 is the third top guitar in the Takamine lineup just after No.8 and No.10.

You can tell the difference when you pick it up. It is built to perfection.

I've tuned the harmonic cedar top to the closest note which was an A. Now the guitar sings to all notes and chords with the note A including its overtones such as D and E. In simple words, the guitar is more musical now.

It is a well-balanced instrument, loud, with very clear in both the basses and trebles thanks to the enhanced top and the custom sound port on the side  

There's something magical in its tone, it's almost like a tube microphone sounding guitar rather than a condenser microphone sounding guitar, this is for those who know the difference between the 2 types of microphones.

If I was to describe the sound of this guitar I would say it's like a beautiful photo with a vignette around it.

I am pleased and proud to say this guitar sound magical and can rival guitar in the $10,000 range.

It is just over 21 years old, so it still has the potential to be shaped to your playing style.  Over time the sound will develop and morph to your own style.

 

Specifications:

Top: Solid Cedar

Back & sides: Indian Rosewood Double-plate

“Laminated” is not a suitable word for Japanese made guitars. These "laminates" were made from 2 layers of solid wood glued together with natural resins. The Japanese perfected this technique so well these double-plates were as good as solid woods and far more resistant to cracking.

Fingerboard: Rosewood

Neck: Mahogany

Scale 653 mm

Width at Nut: 51.5mm

Its action is set to 3.5 mm under E6 and 3.00 mm under E1 with very little extra room on the saddle

Shipping is about $60 Australia wide. For international buyers please contact me for shipping costs.

 

A brief history of Takamine's Classical Guitars:

The company was founded in 1959 and got renamed Takamine Gakki in 1962.  In 1968 Masaru Kohno who was one of the best classical luthiers in the world was in charge of supervising the classical guitar production.  Masaru Kohno shot to fame after winning the world-renown Liege Concours National de Guitares (classical guitar builders competition).

Takamine's classical guitars had the same rosette and design as Kohno's personal line.  Models no.20,30 & 40 were intermediate level while No.5,6,7,8 & 10 were advanced level, these also had Kohno style purflings and bridge.

Thanks to the high-grade tonewood used to make the guitars, The excellent craftsmanship and the supervision of highly skilled luthiers, Takamine classical guitars sound better than many high-end guitars currently being produced.

The quality of vintage Takamine guitars rivals and often surpass modern guitars in the $3500-$10000 range.
