The TH90 from Takamine is a Hirade concert classical acoustic/electric guitar with a cutaway body that features a solid spruce top, solid rosewood back and sides, a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard, and a smooth natural gloss finish. With an oval-shaped soundhole, the guitar delivers powerful lows, shimmering mids, and a clear high end. Its unique style and tone make it popular with Latin and flamenco-style players.
Built by hand, the TH90 pays homage to the traditional classical instruments of Master Luthier Mass Hirade, and the solid rosewood back and sides aid in the projection and enhance the sonic brilliance of the instrument. Its natural gloss finish provides durability and adds to the beauty of the guitar.
For electronics, the instrument includes an onboard CTP-3 CoolTube preamp system paired with a Palathetic undersaddle pickup for a first-class amplified response and a natural acoustic tone. In addition, the preamp system has a three-band EQ, volume control, and a built-in tuner, giving the player better control of the guitar's tone in a live environment. A GC300 hardshell case is also included.
