Kunoichi is the Japanese name for a female ninja. Mysterious, stealthy and lethal, she uses cunning and beauty to achieve her objectives. Built to embody the spirit of this formidable female warrior, Takamine’s limited edition Kunoichi guitar has exclusive design features that give it a beautiful and seductive edge.

The Kunoichi produces rich, articulate tones well suited to a wide range of playing styles. Its curvaceous orchestra-style body features a solid bear claw spruce top with scalloped bracing, and solid sapele back and sides.

The soundhole rosette and headstock are adorned with authentic Japanese kimono fabric, bringing a sense of traditional elegance and distinctively delicate beauty to the instrument. The striking Transparent Black Burst finish evokes the Kunoichi’s dark and mystical qualities.

Other premium features include a stunning 12th fret star inlay, the renowned Takamine CT4B-II preamp and Palathetic® under-saddle pickup system for unparalleled amplified performance, an ebony fingerboard and bridge, split bone saddle for superior intonation, bone nut and aged chrome die-cast tuners. Deluxe hardshell case included.
