Tak Matsumoto DC Std. Plus Top
Tak Matsumoto DC Standard Plus Top
Epiphone announces the new Tak Matsumoto DC Standard Plus Top Cherry Outfit, a stunningly beautiful guitar designed by Epiphone and Tak Matsumoto exclusively for Japan. From his blistering solo work and his long-standing association with the band B'z to his GRAMMY winning albums with renowned artists like Larry Carlton, Tak Matsumoto has proved himself not only one of Japan's true masters of the fingerboard, but one of the world's most powerful rockers. With a searing tone that is utterly infectious, Matsumoto has bridged the musical gap between East and West and proved that rock is truly a universal language. Now, Epiphone brings Tak’s unique design and superior tone home with the one-of-a-kind Limited Edition Tak Matsumoto DC Standard Plus Top Cherry Outfit which embodies Tak's own asymmetrical take on the popular DC Standard Les Paul style with a carved Hard maple cap with AAA Flame maple Veneer and a stunning Black Cherry finish.

Like all Epiphones, the Tak Matsumoto DC Standard Plus Top comes with our Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 customer service for a lifetime of worry-free rocking. The Tak Matsumoto DC Standard Plus Top is made exclusively for Japan.
