: We are looking for any info on this guitar, please email us if you know anything

I bought a TAKA W-800 steel string dreadnought guitar in Berkeley, California in 1974 for about $120.00. I bought it from a private seller, and I do not know how or where he got it. I have never seen another TAKA guitar. I love my TAKA, it is still my only acoustic. It has always had great tone and is very rugged. Needs new frets now. It has a mahogany neck, rosewood sides and back, and a solid spruce top. I can email photos if you want. Just let me know. I'd like to know more about who made these guitars.

Taka guitar TA 501

So far the only info I have on Taka guitars is they where or made in japan and sold in Cal in the 70's. I own a Taka ta 501 with worn frets, amazingly I purchased this guitar back in the 90's and have just started to play. I bought the guitar on a rainy day and if you live in California, you know it doesn't rain much, and if its not rain,n ! I'm not play'n! Guess what the last couple of days its been raining, wow! I like this guitar, it even has peace sign, amazing!

I have a Taka w-800 purchased 3/9/1974 from Village Music in Los Gatos, CA. It has great sound and is extremely well made. About 8 years ago I added a pre-amp and under saddle pickup and I use it all the time.

Re: Taka F-700

Hello!

I also have a Taka guitar. Mine's a model F80. It's a fine little orchestra model, really a small body, but a nice sound and good action. It appears to have Rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck and spruce top with mother-of-pearl inlaid trim. I bought mine in 1975 at McCabe's Guitar Shop on Pico Blvd in Santa Monica, CA. The guitar has held up very well for 30+ years. I've never had any work done to it, and have gotten years of pleasurable finger-picking fun out of it. The fretboard has some dimples in it where my fingertips have landed thousands of times, but it is still a nice instrument. Actually, I am considering buying a newer, nicer OM guitar now. Hope that helps!
