What a treat to hear my husband play his acoustic guitar! I know sometimes I take it for granted, but I really shouldn’t because he is so talented and it’s so special to have live music right in your own living room. He just picks up his Takemine any old time and starts playing. He can’t resist sometimes, even though I’m trying to watch T.V., because he likes his Takemine so much.
His is just a standard six string acoustic guitar with a fairly narrow neck to make playing it easier. The body type is called dreadnought. The top is spruce and the sides and back are made of mahogany. The fingerboard is rosewood and the tuning pegs are chrome.
I guess it doesn’t really look like much, but it sure sounds pretty when he plays it. He has been playing for years (We’ve been married almost 43 years, and he was in a band when I met him!)
Through the years, I’ve learned to play a little, but the Takamine has steel strings, which kind of hurt if I try to play too long. Well, actually, they hurt a lot because I don’t have calluses. It always amazes me how long my husband can play. He says his Takamine makes it easy!
