Limited Edition

Takamine have only manufactured 30 of these beautiful guitars, and have allocated 4 to the UK. The craftsmanship is simply superb and the tone quality is sweet and full of projection. They are made in Takamine’s pro-shop in Sakashita, Japan, where they have been crafting guitars for over fifty years. An ideal choice for collectors of limited edition Takamine's or anyone wanting an exquisite instrument.

Oregon Myrtle

Oregon Myrtle is a broad-leaf evergreen native to Southwestern Oregon and Northwestern California. It grows prolifically in this coastal region and takes around 80 to 120 years to reach full size. The aesthetic benefit of using Myrtle is that it possesses a wide variety of beautiful colors and grain patterns which do not compare to usual guitar tonewoods. The tone is quite similar to that of Maple, clear and bright with nice projection.

The choice of a Sitka Spruce top delivers a bright and clear tone with a warm character. This particular tonewood is extremely vibrant providing an ideal “diaphragm” for transmission of sound. It is the primary top wood for many guitars due to its straight, uniform grain, longevity and tensile strength. Combined with the rare Myrtle back and sides, the Sitka Spruce top adds a beautiful contrast to the overall appearance of the TLD-M2.

TLD-2 Line Driver Preamp

The Takamine line driver preamp is a simple circuit designed to buffer the pickup and boost the current of the signal to eliminate any degradation with long cables. It is clean and quiet with a minimal amount of wiring and is discreetly mounted within the output jack assembly providing no obvious sign of on-board electronics. The TLD-2 does have 3 simple tone shaping controls if you care to extract and tinker.
