The TH5C Hirade concert classic is handcrafted in our pro series facility that has been building precision quality instruments over five decades.

A sterling example of the luthier’s 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. This guitar features a solid cedar top for warmth and broad dynamic range and a solid rosewood back for excellent projection. 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. Includes Takamine's proprietary CTP-3 Cool Tube preamp system. The dual-channel CTP-3 provides low-voltage tube tone, variable from bright and brilliant to thick and warm, three band EQ with semi-parametric midrange, auxiliary input and volume (for use when a second pickup is added), and an onboard chromatic tuner. Master luthier Mass Hirade was a driving force at Takamine, joining the company in 1968 and becoming its president in the mid-1970s. A brilliant guitar maker, he created innovative instruments of markedly superior volume, tone and playability, and it is in honor of his legacy that one of the most acclaimed Takamine guitar families is named. Steeped in tradition, classical guitars remain a vibrant and vital presence in today's music, and Takamine has long gathered acclaim for its own finely crafted contributions to the form. Built with the nuanced and full-bodied voice of that age-old tradition, Takamine classical guitars also incorporate equally nuanced technological innovations that make adding a nylon-string guitar to your onstage arsenal a richly rewarding sonic experience. Today's Takamine classical guitars continue a truly fine heritage of classical excellence, including the "H" and "TH" Hirade models named after the great man himself.
