Takamine LTD24 Limited Edition model for 2024.





Inspired by the 2024 leap year, LTD2024 is a stellar limited edition acoustic guitar beautifully combining 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.

The inspiration for this year's guitar is the year itself! 2024 is a leap year - the once-in-every-four-year calibration of our calendar with the solar system.
The LTD2024 is a testament to what can be achieved when the boundaries of traditional guitar-making are expanded to capture the essence of the universe itself. Join us on this journey through the stars, where every chord strikes closer to the heart of musical and cosmic harmony.
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.

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 sun’s light is only partially obscured, 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.
