Takamine is unveiling a range of new models at NAMM, including mini, classical and limited edition models.

EG450DLX-TBS

Built on the Takamine NEX small jumbo body shape, the EG450DLX-TBS has a solid neck, fast and adorned with abalone inlay. A “vintage” sunburst adds to the solid spruce top, and is accented by the inlaid pickguard. Also available in Gloss Black.

EG630S-VV / EG444C-VV / EG430S-VV

Built on a NEX “small jumbo” body and a little New Yorker size, these guitars have a Vintage Violin finish to bring out the figured mahogany body.

EC124SC-BL

Black finish and predominantly black binding.

EF341SC-LH

Now available as a left handed model.

EF300BK

Only offered in Europe, the EF300BK's herringbone rosette, white binding and Takamine logo on the headstock offer a contrast against the gloss black finish.

EF300SE-BW

Designed as a tribute to Takamine’s first limited edition model in 1987, this addition to the EF300 series of guitars is finished in a pearlescent Brilliant White. It has black headstock cap, scratchplate, and chunky herringbone rosette.

The nature of the finish on this guitar means that it is classed as a 'Special Edition’, with a maximum of 12 being available in any given month.

TF360SBG-MAG

The latest model in the Tradesman Series of “purpose built” guitars. This dreadnought cannon is built using red (Adirondack) spruce for the soundboards. The back and sides are solid Madagascar rosewood. It also has herringbone purfling to the figured maple binding.

LTD2011 'iki’

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 year’s offering in the continuing LTD Series from Takamine Guitars. The feature sets on this instrument will be offered only this year. This instrument is based on the NEX, “small jumbo” platform, which is designed for balance across the entire playable range. The voice is sweet and expressive and not only blends nicely with a singer but will happily respond to more aggressive playing techniques with boldness and clarity, the company says.

There is the 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. Ripples are depicted by a crafted inlay consisting of gold string that is traditionally used to wrap gifts given at weddings and used to symbolise the gift givers wishes of good health and fortune.

It comes with the CTP-2 preamp, described as ''the first and only “Tube” preamp built into an acoustic guitar."

Takamini

The new G Series Mini guitars combine deluxe appointments on an NEX inspired body shape, resulting in a travel-size guitar with the build quality and playability that you would expect from any Takamine G Series guitar, according to the company. It has narrow waist and shoulders, bound top and back and come with a gig bag for transport.
