Takamine Taps ESP Guitars For U.S. Distribution

...are the culmination of a year long market analysis, that began after Takamine severed a long term distribution pact with KMC Music Group. The break with KMC had no impact on Takamine relationships with the 30 other distributors that represent the guitar maker in markets around the world.

The new agreement between Takamine and ESP coincides with ESP’s 40th anniversary. A Takamine spokesman said, “ESP’s wealth of experience and powerful relationships with musicians, dealers, and industry professionals will strengthen Takamine’s position in the U.S. market. ESP benefits because they are adding a top-class acoustic and acoustic-electric guitar to their portfolio.”
