Takamine celebrates 51 years of acoustic tradition and peerless guitar craft with the special-edition LTD2013 SE “Peak” model. Fifty-one of these beautifully crafted, elegantly distinctive instruments will be built to represent the very summit of the Takamine acoustic experience. The design will never be duplicated.
The LTD2013 SE Peak’s unique “New Yorker” parlor-style design, solid bear claw spruce top and solid Hawaiian koa back and sides produce a clear, full-bodied voice with airy sweetness and character. The distinctive “climber” inlay work spans the entire fingerboard, representing the concept of “Peak”, a perspective of continuous improvement. Additional ornamental touches such as maple body binding, dark wood purfling, spalted maple/cocobolo rosette, and gloss natural finish further accentuate the instrument’s refined elegance.
Other premium features include a mahogany neck with 20-fret ebony fingerboard, rosewood bridge with split saddle, chrome tuners with pearl knobs, Palathetic™ pickup and TLD-2 onboard preamp.
Each guitar will be numbered on the soundhole label and will come with a special certificate of authenticity hand-signed by the President of Takamine Japan.
