The H5 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. These instruments are designed and built to stand beside the finest classical guitars made today.
