This item was included with a certificate of authenticity with the Takamine Ltd Edition 50th Anniversary of which only 50 were made world wide.
Viewing the catalog certificate and this item shown with the guitar.

I'm not sure if one of these came with the 50th anniversary guitar or not.
I'm not sure if only 50 were made for the distribution of the guitars.

Should anyone here shed some light on it would be appreciated. Especially those that have a 50th Anniversary Takamine and care to talk about it.

I consider this item as "Rare" as the guitar itself and can't imagine its value to the right person.

It's a marvel to just look at with the intricate engraving probably done by lasers on the capsulated gold pick. I would guess it is plated, but who knows
without removing it from its container.

Let me know if you know anything about this item and if not enjoy the pictures...

That is the "case candy" that was included with the 50th.

Other than the prototypes and a couple of one off units that were presented to people as a "Domo arigato gozaimashita" for their contribution to the success of the company, only 50 production units were made for the global market.

Obviously that is a "milestone" model for the company and owning one is owning a piece of the history of one of the worlds most respected builders. It is a spectacular work of art.
