In Celebration of the 50th anniversary of Takamine Guitars, the company has introduced its extremely limited edition T50th guitar. The word "Michi," Japanese for a path or course to follow over a distance, has served as the guiding theme from conception through production of this incredible guitar commemorating the 50-year course of Takamine guitars. The design motif depicts a growing vine, symbolic of the vital life of Takamine, and no effort was spared in the search to acquire the world’s finest tone woods for fashioning this special instrument. To create a powerful voice with broad tonal range, Takamine luthiers selected the highest-grade Sitka spruce for the soundboard.
The back and sides are solid cocobolo, bestowing maximum projection and stunning visual impact. With only 50 of these magnificent instruments available worldwide, the T50th is destined to be an instant classic and highly desirable for collectors.
"These are very exciting times for Takamine," said Mike Markure, Takamine's product manger. "We have an offering of guitars that are among the most exciting and eminently collectable instruments the company has ever produced, including the limited production commemorative T50th, and we are looking forward to the next 50 years with as much enthusiasm as we are celebrating this historic anniversary."
