Price : US $600.00
Up for auction is my Takamine F-389 12-String Guitar. It is of the Martin Lawsuit Era, somewhere in the '80s. I rescued this beauty from a pawn shop about a year ago, they had no idea what they had. It is one of the finest Takamines I've seen, and I own two others.
The pictures show it all, absolutely flawless, not a scratch on it. I believe its a mahogany top, same as the sides and back. The neck is razor straight, the bridge has no pulling or any kind of stress fatigue. There is NO damage anywhere on this stunner.
Better yet, I installed an EMG ACS soundhole pickup with an EMG AT-125 piezo under the bridge, both going into an EMG APA-2 preamp that is mounted inside the sound box. If you are a gear-head, you know thats some serious bucks, but makes it a 'stage monster'.
If I were famous, I'd endorse EMGs.
I set the action myself, I'm 54, been playing since I was 14, so I know how to do that. Its low, the pictures show that well, it strums strong, yet low enough to be articulate. You be the Steve Howe, not me. (I am 54 and the grip strength is going)
So its the Best Takamine 12-String on eBay. There I said it. Comes with its TKL hardshell case.
Winner pays actual shipping, figure a hundred bucks stateside. I'll ship to the UK but the rest of the planet is cost prohibitive.
