Epiphone Releases Tak Matsumoto DC Standard Plus Top Aqua Blue in Japan
Epiphone has released a new Tak Matsumoto signature model in Japan: The Tak Matsumoto DC Standard Plus Top Aqua Blue. This guitar is basically an Epiphone version of the previously talked about Gibson Tak Matsumoto DC Prototype 2011 #1 which Tak Matsumoto has been using during the Pleasure 2013 tour as well as B’z LIVE-GYM 2011 -C’mon-. In fact, the Gibson model can also be seen in Utopia’s music video.
It will go on sale throughout November and cost about 79,800 Yen (about $800). The guitar is only available in Japan, but it looks like that the IKEBE music shop is also willing to ship it overseas. Go to the product page (http://www.ikebe-gakki.com/ec/pro/disp/1/328756) and click on “Product Inquiry” where it says “For Overseas Customers” on the right. I haven’t tried it, but if you are going to buy one, let us know how it works out!
