Hello Billy and apols for my delay in replying. I had a look around for the name and wasn't surprised to find nothing other than similar requests for info. I can only tell you the same thing that other enquirers got; many factories in Asia (particularly China) stick any old name on a headstock and there's not much chance of tracing the source. "Taka" was probably chosen in the hope that people would associate it with the medium-price Japanese acoustic brand "Takamine".

I read of a 6-string Taka selling new in a store for $80 so yours is a budget guitar, most likely made in China. That doesn't mean it's rubbish, though. I bought a child's classical for the British equivalent of $80 and it's a decent little starter instrument. It sounds rather nice and, if your Taka does too, then that's more important than its low value if you sold it.

Thank you very much for your reply.It is a nice sounding guitar was just going to give it to my son and wanted to no a little about it is all...Thanks Billy

Sorry I couldn't be more informative but I'm sure your son will be pleased to get it. The "Valencia" I bought for my son sounds quite pleasant and I'm happy to have a strum on it, too. I showed him "Sunshine of your Love" and he wrote it down, which turned out to be popular with the other kids in his guitar class. IT's nice to have something in common with him again, after years of listening to him go on and on about Final Fantasy and other DS Lite guff.
