TAKAMINE LTD2006 CAPTURES ANCIENT WISDOM OF TIBET
Over the past few years, Takamine has looked to nature for inspiration when designing their showpiece Limited Edition guitars. For 2006, Takamine invokes the spiritual realm for inspiration in creating the LTD2006.
The ancient wisdom of Tibetan culture is captured beautifully in the LTD's "Mandala" rosette. The Mandala, representing the four elements of life – Air, Fire, Earth and Water -- is skillfully inlayed into the exotic wood and semi precious stone adorned rosette. The 12th fret is marked by the "Knot of Life", binding all things together in unity.
The LTD2006 is an OM sized cutaway guitar constructed with a solid Spruce top with solid Rosewood back and is powered by Takamine's CT4B preamp.
I hope that I have many happy years playing my new friend....
