Takamine GZ 300 Electric Solid Body

Price : US $346
Very rare. Gorgeous Takamine 1984 GZ-300 in great cosmetic & functional condition.
Rosewood fretboard, set neck, true bone nut, one piece very highly figured mahogany body, humbuckers, Kahler tailpiece. Original knobs for volume and tone control for each pickup, and 3-way pick-up switch. Beautifully bound top, high-quality sealed tuners with the Takamine logo.
High-quality frets, fretwear is negligible. Some minor pick hazing on the front, but it doesn’t stand out as the photos indicate. A couple of nicks on the front headstock. There is no discoloration anywhere on the top—in the photos, that is just reflections & flash glare—the finish on this baby just gleams. The action is fantastic. Sweet low, and fast, but without any fret buzz. Recently re-strung with D’addario 10’s. The build quality and attention to detail on this axe is exceptional: awesome fretwork, very well-balanced, recessed volume and tone controls, comfortably contoured like a PRS. Beats the heck out of anything you can buy new for under $1000...
It also beats the heck out of lot axes that cost more than a grand, too. I was told that more than anything else, this ultra-rare GZ-300, sounds like some of the few, decent Les Pauls, but without the nasty price tag, nasty weight & lack of attention to important details, like setup and fretwork.

The Takamine GZ 300's solid bodys are all made of solid ash, not mahogany. These are wonderful guitars that are comparable to any Les Paul I've ever had in hand. Slightly smaller tha a Les Paul, slightly larger than a Wolfgang.
I'm looking for one of these. I'm a female singer/songwriter and I play taks. I have an acoustic, of course, and a rare Tak resonator I found. I am looking for a solid-body electric to add. I love this one picture. I\\\'m willing to pay a good price. email@example.com
i have one black with some cream color lines at the edges, it´s same as in the picture, same low tone and very fast to play or sweet clean sound, how much do you think it´s worth now, just to say?
This a one of the best playing guitars I ever had my hands on. A little smaller than a Les Paul, a little larger than a Wolfgang. It's Just right. Smooth as butter with a bad ass fat sound. It's also got a sexy looking solid ash, dark brown body with black and chrome accents.
