Product Description

In celebration of their historic 60th anniversary, Takamine Guitars brings you “THE 60TH”, a very special limited-edition guitar that will be available at select Takamine dealers.

THE 60TH will be a coveted guitar for serious Takamine collectors, or anyone who appreciates a very rare, finely-crafted instrument.

THE 60TH has a body shape based on an early Takamine design that adapted a classical body to an x-braced concert steel string, with the addition of a distinctive cutaway. The top, back, and sides are made of solid highly-figured Hawaiian koa.

A completely unique three-piece bracing made of ebony sandwiched with spruce allows the koa top to offer the perfect combination of rigidity and resonance. The bracing is hand-shaped and shaved by Takamine’s master luthiers — Noriharu Sakurai and Toru Hirokawa — to reduce the weight by more than 20%, promoting significantly more top vibration sensitivity, resulting in rich vibrant tone that surpasses all expectations on a koa-topped guitar. It also features a mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard. Ultra-thin high gloss finish is then applied to allow every note to vibrate and shine as bright as the guitar itself.

In keeping with its extra-special nature, THE 60TH features an authenticated genuine diamond embedded as an inlay on the headstock over the “i” in the Takamine logo. Takamine’s 60th anniversary theme is also indicated in the guitar via a 31 piece diamond-image position marker inlaid at the 12th fret. THE 60TH also features hand-inlaid and painstakingly color-matched abalone purfling along the top, back, sides, and headstock, complimenting its natural maple binding.

THE 60TH includes Takamine’s new CTF-2N preamplifier with the warm, dynamic sound of Takamine’s early FET preamp model, affectionately known as the “Brownie”, which offers 2-band EQ as well as modern conveniences like easy battery access, a chromatic tuner, and a notch filter.

The guitar is shipped in a very special hard case and includes a commemorative 60th anniversary key fob.

Production of THE 60TH will be limited to 60 individually numbered guitars worldwide.
