Stunning flamed maple top guitar made to celebrate Takamine's more than 50 years tradition in crafting some of the best acoustic guitars in the world! The new Ltd2016 Decoy looks and sounds fantastic, and will be a prized instrument in your collection! A guitar you'll love for many years to come!
Limited-Edition, celebrating over 50 years of tradition and craftsmanship by Takamine!
The fingerboard delicately and artfully portrays the Japanese fishing technique known as "Tomozuri" used to catch the Wild Ahu, or "Watermelon Fish" so called because of its similarly sweet, smell and taste. This fascinating technique celebrated within the Gifu Prefecture (where Takamine's hometown is located) utilizes the territorial behavior of the Ahu fish by introducing a live, hooked decoy fish which the angry Ahu will then attack in dramatic fashion. Between the Ahu's extremely spirited nature and the fast-flowing rivers and rapids in which they dwell, pulling in the "Watermelon Fish" is known as a challenging and exhilarating experience.
The LTD-2016 is a special expression of more than 50 years of tradition and craftsmanship instilled within the team of talented artisans who create Takamine Guitars. We hope you draw as much inspiration from this guitar as we have from the many gifted musicians who choose Takamine to create their individual musical voice.
