Created in the spirit of "Iki", which is the traditional aesthetic ideal that seeks to promote an emotional connection between the person and the object, the LTD2011 is this years offering in the continuing LTD Series from Takamine Guitars. The unique feature sets on this instrument will be offered only this year and never appear together again.
This Fine instrument is based on the Takamine NEX, "small jumbo" platform which is designed for impeccable balance across the entire playable range. The voice is sweet and expressive and will blend nicely with a singer but will happily respond to more aggressive playing techniques with boldness and clarity.
Aside from the impressive musical character of the guitar there is the visually stunning application of shell and fabric brought to life in the form of Asian goldfish swimming about in the deep, Indigo burst finish of the soundboard creating ripples depicted by an artfully crafted inlay consisting of a very special gold string that is traditionally used to wrap gifts given at weddings and used to symbolize the gift givers wishes of good health and fortune.
As with every Takamine guitar, only the very finest tonewoods are used in the build process to assure a most rewarding playing experience. And when the time comes to make music, every bit of the harmonic richness of the instrument will come through loud and clear with an electronic package that is "beyond state of the art" with the CTP-2 preamp. The first and only "Tube" preamp built into an acoustic guitar.
