Takamine calls this a jazz-box, but that might be a bit of a stretch. It does, however, feature an arched spruce top and an arched, flamed maple back. Beautiful, solid woods. Heavier in weight than most other acoustics -- sweet and mellow.
Of early 1980s vintage (these were built around 1981-82, as far as I know), this one is in excellent condition. The looks, feel, and sound are all sublime. You'll see a couple of small dings on the top below the bridge, and there's some finish wear by the soundhole. Absence of a pickguard will do that.
The pre-amp is the early Takamine model with three sliders for volume, bass, and treble.
The neck is straight, and the action is low.
Comes with the original hardshell case in equally excellent condition.
Please ask all questions before the auction ends, and good luck! I'm advertising this locally in las Vegas, too, so bid early and bid often. You will not be disappointed.
