Tak Matsumoto Doublecut Custom Ebony
Best known as the guitarist, songwriter and producer of Japanese rockers B'z, Tak Matsumoto is renowned as Asia’s foremost guitarist. The duo, which includes vocalist Koshi Inaba, holds the record for consecutive #1 singles on Japan's Oricon Singles Chart, having sent a whopping 46 hits to the top since the band's formation in 1988, and is equally known for its dynamic live shows, including a sold-out North American tour in 2011. In addition, Tak has pursued a successful solo career, joined forces with artists such as Steve Vai, Chad Smith and Jack Blades, and won a Grammy alongside Larry Carlton for Best Pop Instrumental Album for their 2010 release Take Your Pick. The Tak Matsumoto DC Custom follow’s Tak’s preferred offset double-cutaway take on the hallowed Les Paul, and dresses up the package in the elegant Custom attire as conceived by Les Paul and Ted McCarty in 1954, with a hand-sprayed, high-gloss nitrocellulose finish in Ebony with traditional Custom appointments such as mother-of-pearl block fingerboard inlays, multi-ply body binding, gold hardware and mother-of-pearl split-diamond headstock logo. Add Tak's preferred profile, measuring .845" at the 1st fret and .945" at the 12th, a lusciously dark Richlite® fingerboard, and a Burstbucker #2 and #3 pickups in the neck and bridge, and you’re ready to hit the stage.
