Thread: FS: 2015 Takumi TT-1M Mahogany Tenor Ukulele

    Default FS: 2015 Takumi TT-1M Mahogany Tenor Ukulele

    Up for sale is my 2015 Takumi TT-1M tenor ukulele. The instrument is used and in very good-excellent condition. It is made of solid Honduras mahogany (top, back, and sides) and has an all gloss finish. Fretboard and bridge are Indian rosewood. Tuners are Gotoh 4:1 planetary with gold body and amber buttons. Strings are Living Waters with low G tuning.

    As currently set up, the uke has a really nice woody and crisp yet warm tone.

    I have a Takumi TT-3M and it is fantastic instrument. It holds it's own with my Collings UT2-M Mahogany tenor! Seriously, it's that good. It has a Japanese sound to it since the Takumi ukuleles were designed and built by Master Builder: Yusuke Kawakami. Clear, crisp yet resonant notes. Sounds wonderful with fluorocarbon strings.

    Takumi has stopped making ukuleles under that name, because their luthier retired. Instead it''s now the name for the parent umbrella company.

    As stated it has a beautiful light build. The Fremont case is great as well. Takumi ukes were sold in these cases the last year they were made.

    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don't begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Takumis are great. I used to have the concert version of this and it was just lovely. These almost never come up and this is a very fair price. I'd be very very tempted to jump on this but would need to let something go first.

    Good luck with the sale!

    Wow Kenn2018 - that's quite a history on Takumi! Thank you so much for providing that information. I've had interest in Takumi and Kiwaya for some time. What you mention explains why I don't see many Takumi ukes on the marketplace these days.

    Thanks CPG!

    Yep, Snargle, those are Gotoh planetary-geared tuners.

    Praise the Lord! I don’t have to stress anymore over how i justify to my wife why I had to have this ukulele. Alex, I really wanted to buy it. Had I not been tied up with lessons the day you texted me, I would have pulled the trigger on my PayPal account.

    Congratulations to the new owner.
