Musikmesse 2011: Takamine Present Four New Guitars
Great Deals on Takamine Guitars

Leading acoustic guitar manufacturer Takamine launches a quartet of new guitars, including a limited edition.

At £419, the EG418SCX-FB (pictured) is the cheapest release by Takamine at Musikmesse.

The NEXC shaped guitar has a 'flat black' finish, pulled together with cream binding and a "motorcycle chain" soundhole rosette.

The 12th fret features a Cross inlay completing the look of this exquisite gutar.

Next up, the EF300W is based on the EF300 series, bringing a traditional looking instrument with flamed black mahogany back and sides.

With just 200 guitars avaiable, exclusively to Europe, this £1,115 guitar is set to sell like hot cakes.

The £2,015 Kunoichi guitar is a tribute to female Ninjas, named after the Japanese word for them.

Developed to represent a woman's shape, the OM body pays tribute to the Ninjas who attracted their enemy's Shogun and tried to gather secret info, or killed them as an assassin.

With 80 guitars available exclusively to Europe, and headstock and soundhole rosette specially designed with beauty in mind, these guitars will sell fast.

Completing the Messe line up for Takamine is the Yozakura guitar, a celebration of springtime in Japan, when the beautiful blossoms fall from trees, carpeting the land.

To make this tribute real, the Gloss Black finish has blossom inlays and crescent moon sound hole rosette.

Just 40 guitars are available exclusively in Europe, at £1,919.
