Takamine has redesigned their G Series line of acoustic guitars.

Scottsdale, AZ (July 18, 2013) -- Takamine is proud to announce the release of its redesigned G Series line of guitars. Featuring acoustic and acoustic-electric models, the new G Series is available in a wide variety of body styles that include traditional designs and Takamine-exclusive designs such as the popular NEX and FXC body styles.

The new G Series guitars are available in a variety of choice tonewood combinations that appeal to a wide range of players and for a wide range of musical styles. Most models feature select solid spruce or solid cedar tops with quartersawn “X” bracing. Back and side materials comprise fine tonewoods such as mahogany, figured maple and rosewood, with some models featuring a popular and stunning three-piece rosewood/quilt maple back.

Exclusive Takamine design elements are visible throughout the new line, with features such as pin-less and split-saddle bridges for superior intonation and convenient string changes.

Acoustic-electric models feature acclaimed Takamine electronics such as the TK-40D and TP-4TD preamp systems, which feature built-in electronic tuners and a host of tone-shaping controls that offer players convenience, versatility and exceptional amplified sound.

“Takamine G Series guitars have always represented high quality and exceptional value,” says Dave Gonzalez, Takamine product manager. “And now they’re even better, with great new looks and features at price points that are more accessible than ever before.”

Pricing for new Takamine G Series guitars ranges from $259.99 to $859.99 (MSRP).

A modern take on Fullerton shapes and a blend of Fender and Gibson attributes strikes a sweet middle ground.

A stylish alternative to classic Fender profiles that delivers sonic versatility. Great playability.

Split-coil sounds are a little on the thin side. Be sure to place it on the stand carefully!


Fender Player Plus Meteora HH


After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.
