Takamine Director / General Manager, Makoto Terasaki and International Business Manager, Daisuke Uegaki, were also on hand to give a fantastic and thorough history of the company, which began in 1959. As well as elaborating on the intricacies of the manufacturing process of the pro series guitars crafted in Japan.

Guitars in the Pro Series are setup professionally with asymmetrical C-shaped necks for comfort during longer playing times and performances, and the laser-guided precision used in the fret finishing process for tonal clarity.
