Information: 

Terada was established in 1912 initially as a toy violin maker but from around 1955 onwards Terada started making proper stringed instruments. By the 1970s they had three factories near Nagoya (Higashiku factory, the Kanie factory and the Shirakawa factory). Production peaked in the late 1970s and early 1980s when they were making upwards of 10,000 guitars each month for both domestic and export markets. Terada specialised in making semi-acoustic and acoustic guitars and made OEM guitars for Ibanez, Orville by Gibson, Epiphone Japan, Gretsch amongst others.
