'Kunoichi' is the term given to a female Ninja in Japan. The Shogun would send these women to spy on his enemies. They attracted their enemy's Shogun and tried to gather secret info, or killed them as an assassin - Hence the choice of an OM body to represent a woman's body shape.
This guitar is a limited edition of only 80 guitars, available only in Europe.Pricing
It will be priced at £2015.
The 'Yozakura' guitar is described as "a celebration of the springtime in Japan, when the Cherry and Plum blossoms fall from the trees, creating a carpet of petals along the roads and pathways." Yozakura is, in particular, symbolic of the Sakura (Cherry Blossom time) as observed at night, according to Takamine. This is represented in the Gloss Black finish, blossom inlays, and the crescent moon sound hole rosette.
This guitar is a limited edition of only 40 guitars, available only in Europe.
It will be priced at £1,919.
