Every year, Takamine showcases their exquisite craftsmanship with their highly anticipated limited-edition LTD model. This year, Takamine is proud to introduce the LTD2021 Blue Rose, a stunningly beautiful guitar that encompasses everything musicians have respected about Takamine throughout its more than 50 year history.
The LTD2021 Blue Rose combines incredible handcrafted beauty with fantastic sound and smooth playability. It’s a spectacular slope-shoulder acoustic-electric dreadnought guitar that features a subtle Charcoal Blue Gradation finish over its solid Sitka spruce top, solid sapele back, and sapele sides, with contrasting white binding and abalone purfling, and a matching rosette. The LTD2021 Blue Rose offers delicate imagery of blue roses inlaid in its striped ebony fingerboard. These inlays are made with layered fabric, gently colored by the aizome method, a traditional art form in Takamine's home in Gifu, Japan that uses natural indigo blue dye made from plants.
Other features of the LTD2021 Blue Rose include Takamine’s split saddle design for excellent intonation, a mahogany neck, and Takamine’s acclaimed Palathetic pickup paired with their CT4-DX preamplifier that includes detailed onboard tone shaping and tuning controls.
The Takamine LTD2021 Blue Rose is crafted in very limited quantity with a combination of design and features that will never be duplicated, making it a must-have for serious players and collectors alike. It also includes a deluxe hard-shell Takamine case.
