Takamine LTD2013-PEAK; a limited edition electro-acoustic guitar that is a shining example of the quality guitars Takamine are known to produce.
Limited Edition Electro-Acoustic Guitar
Known for crafting incredible guitars now for almost 60 years, Takamine consistently produce fantastic instruments and their limited edition models really showcase their extraordinary talent.
Fantastic Acoustic Guitar Craftmanship
For the LTD2013 Peak guitar, Takamine have taken the unique New Yorker parlour guitar design and crafted it with a solid Spruce top with solid Sapele back and sides and so the LTD2013 Peak has clear and full-bodied tone that is nicely focused and has a lot of character.
Being made with all-solid top, back and sides, the more you play the Peak guitar, the better it sounds. With the guitar tones resonating through the solid wood, over time the wood adapts to this resonance to better facilitate it. The result is an amazing electro-acoustic guitar that ages like a fine wine.
The bridge is Rosewood and it holds a split saddle to ensure perfectly accurate intonation across all six strings.
Climb to The Peak
A Mahogany neck features a 20-fret Rosewood fingerboard which itself has a beautiful and intricate inlay design. Representing the “Peak” concept of the Takamine LTD2013, the inlay features a climber atop a mountain peak with beautiful cloud imagery across the fretboard.
With the “Peak” concept symbolising the pursuit of continuous improvement it is well placed on an incredible guitar such as this one, which you will cherish for years to come.
Ivory coloured binding both protects the guitar and adds an extra visual touch of class, as does the beautiful abalone rosette.
Natural Sounding Electronics
One downfall for many electro-acoustic guitars is that when they’re plugged in they lose all their character and acoustic sound.
Not so with the Takamine LTD2013 Peak electro-acoustic guitar thanks to the amazing Palathetic pickup.
Utilising six individually shielded piezo-electric elements, the Palathetic pickup has twelve times the element mass of a typical under saddle pickup.
Each of the six elements (one for each guitar string) penetrate the bridge plate, soundboard and bridge, making direct contact with the saddle and in doing so, create a direct sonic link with their respective string, with the pickup’s casing mechanically attached to the guitar’s top and bridge to create a direct link with the resonating soundboard.
This set up results in a great signal that brings with it the articulation of isolated string signals and the rich harmonic tone that comes from the resonating soundboard, giving you the full acoustic guitar tone.
The proprietary technology in the Palathetic pickup is a core reason why Takamine electro-acoustic guitars have such a great sound.
A CT4B-II active preamp offers extensive controls to ensure you get just the sound you want from the LTD2013 Peak.
A three-band EQ system allows you to set the low, mid and high frequencies with +/- 5db adjustments while an integrated tuner means you can keep your Takamine LTD 2013 perfectly in tune without the need for an extra, external guitar tuner.
Also, a volume slider allows you to adjust the overall level of your guitar’s sound.
A fantastic acoustic guitar when played unplugged that doesn’t lose any of its character when plugged in - the Takamine LTD2013 Peak electro-acoustic guitar is perfect for live performance.
