Takamine Electro Acoustic Guitars
Takamine are a Japanese manufacturer of guitars most well known for their steel string acoustics. Many of Takamine’s guitars feature built in preamps, making them electro acoustic guitars.
They were one of the first guitar manufacturers to present electro acoustic guitars and were one of the pioneering companies of the preamp-equalizer component we see on almost all modern electro acoustic guitars.
Unlike acoustic guitars, Takamine electro acoustic guitars can be plugged directly into an amplifier or speaker.
Electro acoustic guitars are particularly well equipped for live performances where high levels of volume are required because of this. The direct signal can also be recorded making them ideal for recording without a microphone.
