Shiny pearl finish that embodies the radiance of spring
The most distinctive feature of this model is the shiny pearl coating applied to the entire body. The color gradation is a burst of cherry blossom color that darkens from the center of the body toward the outside, and the expression changes depending on how the light hits it and the angle from which it is viewed. The result is a finish full of sparkling luster and freshness that is reminiscent of the spring sunlight. The coating technique to make the best use of Sakura wood, which has been cultivated through the experience of producing many Sakura models, is a technique only Aska factory craftsmen can do. Please take a look at this model if you find it in stores near you.
Beautiful and aesthetic design
Cherry blossoms in full bloom headstock inlay
The headstock features an inlay depicting cherry blossoms in full bloom. Additionally, there’s a design of a honeybee. Bees do not leave their hives during the cold season to prepare for spring, and when the weather warms up, they begin their activities, which is also an insect that tells us that spring is coming. The delicate inlay design together with the gold machine heads gives the guitar a luxurious feel.
Cherry blossom inlays fluttering in the spring breeze on the fingerboard
The design is based on the motif of cherry blossom petals blowing in the spring breeze on a rare ebony fingerboard. The unique and beautiful inlay work is an indispensable feature of the Sakura model. The position marks on the frets 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 12th, and so on are also marked with large cherry blossoms, as well as the usual position marks. In addition, the 8th fret features a bee inlay.
Sound hole cover featuring a woman in a kimono
This model comes with a sound hole cover featuring a woman in a kimono. Combined with the cherry blossom design, it gives the instrument a more elegant, Japanese-style finish. By storing the guitar with its sound hole covered by the sound hole cover, the sound hole will look lovely just by being there even when not playing.
A 3P structure combining cherry and Japanese maple wood
The body back is a 3-piece back construction combining cherry blossoms and maple. The center section of the maple is painted with a scene of fluttering cherry blossom petals covering the entire surface of the maple. The shiny pearl coating also changes its appearance depending on the angle of view and the way the light hits the surface. The sound of the maple trees also adds a crisp and clear quality that is unique to maple trees.
Equipped with an African mahogany 1P extra slim neck
The neck is made of luxurious one-piece African mahogany.
The new model features an extra-slim U-neck that is the thinnest in Headway’s history and is shaped for easy gripping. Not only is the neck thinner, but it also retains Headway’s traditional characteristics of solidity and stability by adding carbon support reinforcement to the inside of the neck. This is a confident neck grip that women and players with small hands should try. By applying a semi-gloss finish that resembles the neck after it has been used and acclimated for a while, we have achieved a good grip that allows the hand to be moderately absorbed by the neck. The carbon support also increases rigidity and improves response.
