Re: Anyone tried Tagima guitars?

I've played a Tagima Strat made from one piece ash body and i didnt like it. Very beautiful appearance but sounds too weak and thin.

And thats all of my Tagima experience and if i'd buy a guitar from a Brazilian guitar maker, that will absolutely YOU, bro

Re: Anyone tried Tagima guitars?

OMG! holy thread ressurection, batman!
Many things has been changed since this wierdo conversation.
Now you can find nice Kiko's K1 Tagima Signatures!
The founder luthier Seiji Tagima is no longer the owner of the company since 2006, tough.
The new owners have done a nice job on the new Tagima Guitars lineup.
Anyway, for a basic strat/tele/lespaul copy, they are priced appropriately.
The high end stuff is very expensive but wear propper hardware, like Gotoh and Seymour Duncans.
I did some Tagima special swirl run in 2005:





Kiko and me

And if you own a Tagima guitar from the 90' yeah, it's a top notch well done instrument, with awesome brazilian woods. congratz!

Re: Anyone tried Tagima guitars?

I might be 7 years late in posting a reply to this post, but if anyone's reading, I might be one of the few people in the world with a Tagima Telecaster made in Brazil and I have to say they are Bee-yooo-teee-full!! The resonance from the wood...brilliant. Such a joy to play! And thats just unplugged. Not a huge fan of the pickups but they've been good enough and haven't yet been replaced since buying the guitar in Brazil in 2001.

Re: Anyone tried Tagima guitars?

Dan, if you'd like to buy a brand new one, i have found one at the biggest brazilian guitarshop.
Price is USD $1120,00 w/o shipping.
You can choose the colors, since it's a special order directly to Tagima's Distribuitor.
The guitar arrives to shop after 20 days.
The store can send you the guitar as well.
If you need some help, PM me.
Cheerio,
Tubarão.

Re: Anyone tried Tagima guitars?

Well, thanks guys for replying...

I know I've got a nice axe... although its giving me some tuning problems... If i can't get the K1 then I'd have to wait till i can get the Caparison, no problem man!

I've been to Kiko's website, but I would really want to see him play the K1... there's videos of him playing a strat lookalike... He has great technique and feel, an awesome player!

Re: Anyone tried Tagima guitars?

Daniel, tell me the exact State/City/District you live in Singapore, including ZIP.
Tell any info via PM, so i'll send some questions to Tagima's e-mail.
I'll ask them how much to send a brand new one directly to your door.
Maybe i can help you and help Tagima to make somebody happy

I've played the K1 and K2, and both are nice axes, anyway.
K2 has MIK bridge and pu's, K1 has GOTOH awesome bridge and nice Seymours on it.
I admit I didn't play a K1 yet, more because I can't find them in stores here then anything else, so I won't touch that point. But Zero is no good at all...

About my contacts, if you like Oficina G3, you can find my name on the CD credits, at ACÚSTICO- 1998.
Something like this:
P.G. agradece:
i'd like to thank mom, dad, blablabla, blabla, TUBARÃO and Jesus Christ.
LOL!!!
Heh, nice! I like Oficina G3 to some extent. Juninho Afram plays extremely well, but I don't like the vocals of the band that much...
