From the best guitarist this side of Japan...

By Tak178

from Seattle, WA

Tak has been making American players look like chumps for the past 20 years, and it is about time that he received a signature model. This is actually based on his 2nd signature model, the TakBurst. The first one was a Ferrari Yellow Les Paul with stock Burstbuckers. If you want to hear the tone, check out B'z Live in Yokohama (1999).The second one is the guitar this based on. The Burstbuckers have been specifically voiced by Tak himself. The tone is biting, yet clear.The third signature released in September is a slanted DC with the voice humbuckers, and is a TigerBurst.All of these guitars sell for at least $6000 US if you could import them, so this Epiphone Elitist is about as good as you can get stateside. Maunfactured in the Gibson Japanese Elitist Shop, you can't go wrong, it will be as close to the original as possible. BUY THIS GUITAR!
