Takamine No. 4

I made this baritone guitar out of what I believe to be a 2003 Takamine EG512G. The owners of the others I have made love theirs. It has a few small dings on the top that are only visible in reflection and buckle dings on the back that are also only visible in reflection. This is one beautiful guitar that was made in Korea before they moved manufacturing to China. This guitar is among the loudest, best sounding and most beautiful guitars I have made to date and it may very well be the last one I make. It has a beautiful abalone rosette and I have finished it with a sound port and chrome tuners. I am selling it on eBay for $599 without a case. As of this writing I do have a used hard shell case in pretty good condition available domestically for an additional $75. Sold - Thanks Mike!
