Rare Takamine Guitar and Bass combo from the 1980s

guitarz.blogspot.com:









Poor Takamine ( circa 1985 ).

After a long run of acoustic guitar success in the 1970s and early 1980s they found themselves losing a lot of ground once the mid 80s were in full bloom and hair bands ruled the land.

They had to do something.

I'm not defending Takamine for coming up with these Takamine Guitars and Basses , in fact there is a lot to like about them.
Even though it's not something that I'd usually appreciate, I find I'm a fan of the black with red combo ( See my most recent boot purchase ). I also do not totally hate the body shape on these. They're much more subtle than this Takamine, obviously from the same era.

The seller is looking for trades and I'm sure this would be a great addition to the right collection.

  1. I bought one of those Takamine GX100 Explorer-ish models in 1984, paid...$249US, iirc. Perfectly serviceable guitar, if somewhat generic-sounding; excellent value.

  2. Absolutely stunning. Hard to find one let alone a pair. Hope they go to a good home.
