The serial number can be used to date the guitar on all Takamine guitars other than the G series, which do not have a simple rule that can be used to date them. You can run the serial number through the Takamine dating engine on Guitar Dating (see “Resources”), but it isn’t necessary because the date is easy to extrapolate from the serial number. “01” in these spots would be indicative of a guitar made in January, and “12” would mean the guitar was made in December. This is literally the day out of the month that your guitar was made on.
The clear structure of the Takamine serial number system makes it easy to work out the exact day your guitar was made on.
Every year since 1987, Takamine has presented a Limited Edition Guitar model, which has been produced in very limited quantities up to a few hundred guitars for worldwide distribution.
These guitars have come with the latest pickup/preamplifier combination available and artful inlays, often with motifs focusing on nature or astronomical phenomena.

The strong, steel-stringed sounds of Takamine acoustic guitars made them sought after by musicians all over the world.
