A stellar limited edition electro-acoustic guitar that combines the majesty of the cosmos with world-class craftsmanship. LTD2024 features intricate inlays of the solar system on its fingerboard, with a special emphasis on Earth's unique orbit, and a sun motif at the 12th fret. 

Crafted with Takamine's renowned attention to detail, the LTD2024 boasts a NEX cutaway body, hand-selected bracing, a black carbon saddle for superior sound transfer, and is equipped with the state-of-the-art CTF-2N preamp for exceptional amplified tones. The LTD2024 is not just a musical instrument, but a collector's piece that captures the harmony of the universe, offering a perfect blend of aesthetic elegance and acoustic excellence.

A Fingerboard Odyssey Through the Solar System

The LTD2024 invites players on a cosmic journey with its uniquely designed fingerboard. Each of the solar system's eight planets is delicately inlaid, showcasing Takamine's attention to detail. The highlight is our very own Earth, presented in a distinct orbit around the sun, encouraging musicians to contemplate our planet's journey through space with each note played.

Sun-Inspired Artistry and Design

Central to the design is the sun, depicted at the 12th fret as a symbol of life and energy. This artistic representation is extended across the guitar's body, with subtle, sun-inspired hues enhancing the upper bout and headstock. These design elements pay homage to the sun's vital role in our solar system and in nurturing life on Earth.

Engineering Excellence in Acoustics

The LTD2024 stands out for its exceptional build quality. Each guitar benefits from the expertise of Takamine's master craftsmen, who hand-select and tune the bracing and tone bars to perfection. The choice of a black carbon saddle is both a visual and auditory decision, ensuring the guitar's aesthetics remain uninterrupted while offering superior sound transmission.

Revolutionary Amplification for the Stage

Equipped with the latest CTF-2N preamp, the LTD2024 guarantees that its beautiful tones are perfectly captured and projected. This preamp, a modern take on the FET technology from our renowned Brownie preamp, offers a warm, authentic acoustic sound. Paired with our acclaimed Palathetic pickup, the LTD2024 promises a balanced, rich tone, making it an ideal choice for live performances.

Penumbra Blue

The distinctive colouring of the LTD2024 is inspired by the astronomical concept of a penumbra - the outer part of a shadow where light is partially obscured. In celestial events like lunar eclipses, the penumbra is where the Earth's shadow only partially blocks the sun's light, creating a softer, diffuse shadow. 

Penumbra Blue mirrors this fascinating interplay of light and darkness, featuring a deep blue that transitions subtly, echoing the gentle gradient seen in cosmic shadows. This colour not only adds a layer of mystique to the LTD2024, but also serves as a reminder of the guitar's celestial inspiration, making it a truly unique addition to any collection.

A Limited Edition for the Discerning Player

The LTD2024 isn't just a guitar; it's a piece of art that celebrates the intricacies of our universe and the beauty of music. Its limited release makes it a sought-after item for collectors and a prized possession for serious musicians. With the LTD2024, players can expect a blend of aesthetic beauty, acoustic innovation, and a touch of cosmic wonder.
