We have a winner for one of our most exciting giveaway sweepstakes in recent memory.
Steven Kelley Smith of Waldorf, MD is the person whose name was selected randomly from the thousands of people who entered to win their choice of finishes in the new TSP138C Thinline Series model. For his prize, Steven selected the amazing Gloss Tea Burst version, though no one would have blamed him for picking the Gloss Natural or Gloss Tobacco Sunburst finishes.
The new Thinline Series is crafted at the legendary Takamine facility in Gifu, Japan, and offers an incredible combination of excellent tone and superb playing comfort. Different Thinline versions are available -- the Koa-based TSP178ACK, the maple TSP178AC, the nylon string TSP148NC, and three finishes of the TSP138C -- to accommodate your personal style.
Steven tells us that his first Takamine is a 12-string that he received as a Christmas present almost 45 years ago, and he says it still sounds as good today as the day he got it. We look forward to hearing more about his story, and getting some pics from him with his new Takamine Thinline!
