Limited Edition Top Tier Takamine.
In 2002, Takamine Guitars introduced their annual Limited Edition guitar, featuring performance enhancements along with a stunning whale motif in the soundhole rosette and 12th fretboard. To give the guitar special purpose, the company partnered with The Cousteau Society to benefit the world’s ocean habitats.
The instrument is a cutaway acoustic/electric dreadnought featuring Takamine’s popular NEX body style. The select solid spruce top combined with the solid rosewood back top generates exceptional volume and brilliance with a deep and powerful bass. The mahogany neck joins the body at the 14th fret and features an ebony fingerboard and bridge.
Takamine’s renowned palathetic pickup and CT4B preamp give the instrument broad acoustic/electric flexibility. The CT4B features a warm-sounding 3-band graphic with an extremely stable and accurate chromatic tuner. Great for non-standard and open tunings.

This guitar has been refurbished by MIRC. It is lightly stamped “used” on the back of the headstock, and a new serial number applied to prevent the guitar from being sold as new factory stock. That being said, this guitar is about as close to new as ‘used’ can get! Everything works, plays, and sounds as it should. There have been no structural repairs. There is some blushing of the finish on the headstock face, and the hard shell case has a few scuffs that can be seen in the pics. Other than that, this guitar is in beautiful condition and sounds and plays like a dream! You WON’T be disappointed!
