🇯🇵【 Headway Guitars 】HF-5080SE
■ The renewed JT series
It is often heard that a professional guitarist or an experienced acoustic guitarist won’t use a brand new guitar as it is, rather having it set up by a reliable repair shop or a guitar builder before starting to use it. They know that having an acoustic guitar properly set up is very important if they want to reach their best performance and achieve the ideal music they would like to create. The undeniable fact is that having good playability really makes difference in the performance and sound of an acoustic guitar. At Headway with our Japan Tune-up series, we are aware of this and we aim for superb playability even on our budget-friendly guitars. Every detail concerned with playability including the nut, saddle, frets, and neck action of JT guitars is carefully adjusted at our Deviser Workshop in Japan before they are dispatched to music stores. We use the term -Tune up- because the attunement done to JT guitars is not just simple adjustments to make the guitars playable, but they are to pull out the best of the guitars, enhancing the playability and the sound. JT guitars are a good fit for players at every level from entry class players to experienced ones.

🇯🇵 1977年由日本兩位年輕滿有熱情的製琴師八塚惠和百瀨恭夫先生一起創立 Headway 品牌，目標就是要打造日本最好的民謠結他並且能和世界級品牌相提並論。他們從拆解 Martin HD-28 開始鑽研這些先驅累積多年的製琴技術及細節再作改良並且建立自己的工法和技術，終於生產第一把型號 HD-115，長年暢銷一舉博得日本市場廣大好評，Headway 在那時被稱為「日本最好的民謠結他品牌」，匠人淬鍊，細膩原聲。
🎸 然而在1983年 Headway 工房不幸遭遇火災被迫停止生產，隔年改組為「Deviser 株式會社」，經營方向改為生產電結他及 Bass 為主，順應當時蓬勃的搖滾樂潮流，同時也為不少國際品牌代工製作，也因為產業的升級使得 Deviser 在產量和技術水準上大幅提升，成為日本國產樂器的知名工廠之一。於1999年他們更決定重新開始製作 Headway 結他，而重新生產的第一把結他就是創業初期最受歡迎的 HD-115，從此之後 Headway 民謠結他重新回到市場！
👨🏻🔧 Headway在重啟生產以後，百瀨恭夫親自負責 Custom shop 系列的製作，同時也把超過40年的豐富經驗傳承給飛鳥工廠年輕一代的製琴師，延續匠人精神的 DNA，包括安井雅人、降幡新等兩位主力製琴師領導的團隊，而為了能讓更多人體驗到 Headway 品牌核心精神，開創 Aska Team Built (ATB) 及 Standard 日廠系列，使用頂級木料和日廠零件以及匠人自豪的手工技術，同時也推出平價的 Japan Tune-up (JT) 系列，由飛鳥工房的技師細心調整後出品，入門 Universe 系列則把Headway 獨到特色帶入，讓初學者同樣享有 Headway 嚴謹的品質。
