Epiphone announces the Tak Matsumoto DC Standard Goldtop 20-Dec-10
Here's what Epiphone has to say...
From his blistering solo work over three decades, to his long-standing association with the band B'z and his several projects with renowned artists such as Larry Carlton, Chad Smith, Steve Vai and Jack Blades, Tak Matsumoto has proved himself not only one of Japan's masters of the fingerboard, but one of the world's most powerful rockers. In a style that is inflected with jazz sensibilities and coupled to a searing tone that is utterly infectious, Matsumoto has bridged the musical gap between East and West, and proved that rock truly is a universal language.
For many years, Tak has brandished his own Signature Gibson Les Paul DC, but now the style and tone of this exclusive instrument are being made available to a wider audience in the form of the Epiphone Limited Edition Tak Matsumoto DC Standard Goldtop. Embodying Tak's own asymmetrical take on the popular DC format, this new offering from Epiphone celebrates all the power and speed that this great musician demands. The Limited Edition Tak Matsumoto DC Standard Goldtop retains all of the rock-solid features that Tak requires to get the job done, including the comfortably rounded D neck profile, a pair of Gibson USA BurstBucker pickups, and LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, while wrapping it all in a gorgeous new gloss-metallic Goldtop finish. But while this great guitar brings Tak's take on the DC to a wider audience, it will only be available in a strictly Limited Edition of 1,000 instruments, so you will need to hit up your Epiphone dealer and get your hands on your own Tak Matsumoto DC Standard Goldtop while stocks last. Each guitar comes protected in an ebony hardshell case with gold hardware and "Tak Matsumoto DC" signature in gold, and includes a full owner's manual and adjustment literature, along with Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Support.
