HANDCRAFTED TAKAMINE GY93NAT NEW YORK PARLOR ACOUSTIC GUITAR. Featuring Takamines Parlor style New Yorker body, the petite GY93NAT acoustic guitar offers a solid top and distinctive back construction, giving it a luxurious aesthetic and wonderful sound. For more than half a century, Takamine has proudly dedicated itself to the art of fine guitar craftsmanship.A longstanding devotion to innovation and continual improvement has placed Takamine among the world's premier acoustic guitar makers, with truly fine instruments that are the first choice of performing guitarists and enthusiasts worldwide. From humble beginnings in 1959 as a small family-run guitar shop nestled at the foot of Mount Takamine in the central Japanese town of Sakashita, the fledgling company took the mountain's name in 1962 and began in earnest the journey that led to the phenomenal success that is the modern Takamine company. At it's core, Takamine are artisans and craftspeople, handcrafting guitars in an artful, thoughtful way to take your performance to new heights.
While high-volume builders use production machinery to speed up their output, speed isn't the issue at Takamine - its the quality of the instrument along with the highest level of craftsmanship. For players seeking the focused, articulate sound that this increasingly popular body style offers, the GY93NAT features a solid Spruce top, Black Walnut sides and a stunning three-piece Black Walnut/quilt Maple back.
The slim mahogany neck and R12-radius bound Laurel fingerboard provide great feel and playability. Other premium appointments include hand-inlaid Maple body, neck and headstock binding, a dark wood Rosette and body purfling, a synthetic bone nut and split bridge saddle, Black Walnut headcap, Abalone dot inlays, gold die-cast tuners with black buttons and a beautiful gloss finish.The Delicate Takamine Soundboard Balance Spruce has been used for soundboards for well over a millennium and the modern bracing system has been around for at least 150 years. Takamine use a traditional X bracing pattern on their steel-string models, differently voiced for each application. Rather than make any radical departures, Takamine's craftsmen 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. The Takamine Fret Secret Most guitar makers don't give frets enough credit or attention.
A good fret job can help a player reach new heights. Examine the frets on a Takamine. What you see is the work of the laser-guided Plek fret finishing system that levels and crowns each fret to within 0.0001 of dead-on. Fret a note, notice how the string contacts the centre line of the fret perfectly and hear the clarity when you play. A good fret job can be the difference between a nice guitar and a great guitar.
Takamine - Deluxe Appointments By Design Takamine pioneered the use of uncommonly artistic and complex inlay work on guitars for working players. Takamine have developed the art of design and the craft of precise inlay work far beyond the capabilities of most other guitar makers. Look closely at Takamine rosettes and inlays.
Such meticulous handiwork is a clearly visible sign of their commitment to excellence in every element of our guitars Takamine - Skin Deep and More Your Takamine is beautiful on the outside, but beauty is more than skin deep. Look inside and see for yourself finely sanded braces and meticulously cut linings display a level of hand craftsmanship fast disappearing from modern guitars.
