Limited Edition 2023 Santa Fe 30th Anniversary


Takamine was one of the first guitar manufacturers to utilize CNC routers and laser cutting machines in its production. With the aid of that then burgeoning technology, Takamine created the ESF-93—the very first Santa Fe model, fusing the new technology with old-world handcraftsmanship.

In keeping with the tradition of all the Santa Fe models, LTD2023 has vibrant turquoise inlays that celebrate the art and culture of the Southwestern United States.

The NEX-sized body has a solid cedar top and beautifully figured silky oak back and sides, an ebony fingerboard, a pinless bridge (in keeping with the Santa Fe model tradition).

Ease of amplification is achieved through the retro-inspired CTF-2N electronics and Palathetic pickup system.

A special commemorative Takamine Santa Fe design guitar strap is included along with a semi-hard case.

A heartfelt homage to Takamine aesthetics

The LTD2023 acoustic-electric guitar represents Takamine’s dedication to quality craftsmanship, uncompromising sound, and striking appearance. The guitar’s solid cedar top and proprietary NEX cutaway body shape form a unique concoction of a projective low-end register and sparkling high-end clarity. X-class bracing seals the deal with a boost to the low frequencies, resulting in balanced yet powerful projection with a slight mid-range scoop and empowered bottom-end. A closer look reveals the LTD2023’s natural mahogany neck, which is designed to be comfortable in the hand and easily maneuvered. If you’re taking to the stage, CTF-2N electronics ensure you get the most authentic amplification of your instrument possible, and it’s all controllable by way of a 3-slider FET preamp. The LTD2023 acoustic-electric is a treasure trove of exclusive sound that’s just waiting to be opened.

Awesome music shop! Very clean, not crowded. Lots of guitars for everyone's musical taste. The staff is super nice, and very informative. I can't say enough good things about Picker's Alley! Thank you so much for serving Southwestern Ontario with such awesome service!!

Great music store. Messaged them about a sale item and they put the last one aside for me until I could get there to purchase.

Tony is by far the best customer service rep around, He knows his stuff, and is always willing to go above and beyond, I only go to pickers alley, for all my musical needs!!

Ryan Mathews

Excellent service, in one word they know what they are doing just tell them your requirement and budget. Don't worry about price if you see it online it's the same price here in offline too. Best thing is the owner's humour and focus on your requirement more than the sales of the store.

Very very happy and satisfied and will be back for additional requirements.

What a great selection of guitars and amps. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. If they don't have what you need chances are they can source it for you. Prices are as competitive as big box music stores so there is no need to look elsewhere. I will continue to support local when I can.
