Takamine TH5C Hirade Classical Acoustic/Electric Guitar w/ Case - Made in Japan. A sterling example of the luthiers art, these classical guitars that bear the name of Master Luthier Mass Hirade are still built by hand in our Takamine pro facility in Japan.

Gloss natural finish provides durability and adds to the beauty of the guitar. These instruments are designed and built to stand beside the finest classical guitars made today.

With the beautiful Cool Tube preamp, this guitar is ready to be responsive and resonant even in situations where amplification is needed.

The return is on me. Josh Ingram has been in the music instrument retail business for over 12 years. He has also worked steadily as a professional touring musician based right here out of Nashville, TN. Though Josh has left the road behind to focus on guitarstobeplayed and his audio rental company [Nashville Sound Rental], he still knows a good guitar when he sees one. Wade Wenrick is the young blood of the guitarstobeplayed team.
He is a recent convert to Music City and is still living the dream. You might have to wrestle him to get the guitar out of his hands though! Check him out via his website, YouTube channel or Instagram.
