Takamine tour

Interested in trying out a new acoustic guitar? We always strongly recommend the try before you buy way of thinking here on Guitarist and it seems that the good people at Takamine guitars agree with us. The acclaimed acoustic manufacturer are holding a series of very special in-store evenings at selected Sound Control stores all over the country in August and September to enable you to get hands-on with their impressive range.

Two of Takamine´s top demonstrators will be taking the company's instrument range through its paces; John Gomm, a young up-coming UK-based singer-songwriters and Vo Fletcher, an established folk, jazz and country session player.

There will be the opportunity to see all Takamine´s latest products, learn more about the woods used and body shapes, plus the pre-amp systems featured in the guitars.

A specialist from the Takamine team will also be available throughout the evening to answer your questions and advise you on the right type of Takamine for your playing style.

And there's an added incentive too: everyone who attends the evenings will receive a bag full of Takamine/Sound Control goodies.
