1981 Takamine F340-s Acoustic Guitar "Martin Lawsuit Model"
Up for sale is a very nice 1981 Takamine F340-s. This guitar was built in Japan in 1981 and was produced to look just like a Martin D-18, thus the lawsuit. For being almost 30 years old, it is in good condition. There are nicks and dings here and there and some finish damage on the back, bottom side, but nothing that impacts playability. This guitar has been a players guitar and shows some use, especially on the pick guard. There are also some polishing marks on the guitar but overall in good condition. I am the second know owner of this guitar but both me and the previous owner have kept this guitar is a smoke-free and temperature controlled environment. This guitar is loud and has a great sound. I had made some upgrades to improve its playability and tone. The modification made are as follows: Grover Tuners (Gold), GraphTech TUSQ Nut, GraphTech Fully Compensated Saddle, Planet Waves Ebony Bridge Pins and End Pin with Abalone Inlay. This guitar has been set-up this November and valued at over $600. The frets are in good/great condition and wont need work for a while. The action is nice and low and fret buzz is absent. Here's the specs:
Top: Solid Spruce
Nut: GraghTech TUSQ Nut
Saddle: GraphTech Fully Compensated Saddle
Tuners: Grover Kidney Tuners (Gold)
Hardware: Chrome (Strap Button on Underside of Neck)
Binding: Body and Sound Hole. Black binging down back and bottom.
Pins: Plant Waves Ebony Bridge Pins and End Pin with Abalone Inlay.
Pick Guard: Yes
Case: Yes (Pressboard. Kinda beat up but still keeps the dust off. NOT FOR HEAVY ABUSE. I think it's a Martin case but I can't be sure.)
This is an amazing guitar and in great condition. This would be perfect for a vintage guitar collector as well as a player. It really does get that Martin sound. The neck is a bit thicker then a D-18 but has a very comfortable curve. I'm not a big acoustic player so this guitar needs to go to a good home. The price is firm and I will ship anywhere to the lower 48. It will be packed the best I can. It may take UP TO 3 DAYS from the time I receive payment to get it shipped out. There are no returns on this item but I'm sure you wont be disappointed. PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE BIDDING. Thanks for looking. Happy bidding.
