Each year, Takamine releases a Limited Edition guitar that celebrates the culture and beauty of the Gifu prefecture, where Takamine has built guitars since 1962. These beautifully crafted instruments feature artistic inlay designs that will never again be repeated.


Check out this absolutely stunning designed guitar.

The delicately inlaid butterflies presented here, herald the arrival of the Spring season. This butterfly, also known as "Spring Ephemeral", cannot survive in the deep forest. It only thrives for a short time in the hills and meadows between the forest and the villages of Gifu, Japan.

Features abalone bindings & shell inlay, big Gifu-Cho inlay on 12th fret, ebony inlaid fingerboard, matte gold tuners with ivoroid buttons and lift-out antique white finish on cedar top.

About the top finish: To the base colour coat of the LTD2018 a new approach was applicated which is called Lift-Out method. Daring to wipe out some part of paint while it is still damp so that natural and unequal textures were intended to remain at the top board.
