 1982 Takamine F 379 Acoustic Guitar (Lawsuit)

1982 Takamine F-379 acoustic guitar. This particular example, serial number 82011402, is in very excellent (9+) condition and is one of the rare lawsuit guitars found in the ’80s. This example has recently had a $150 set up by David Neely and plays amazingly.

The Takamine F-379 features a dreadnought style body shape with solid Koa top, back and sides. The solid Koa body gives it a very rich and warm sound similar to that of a Martin D28 (Koa), which clearly inspired the F-379. Also featured is a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, Grover style Kaman tuners by Takamine, and a very rich walnut finish.

 1954 Gibson J 45

100% ALL ORIGINAL 1954 Gibson J-45 acoustic guitar and original alligator soft case. This particular example sounds absolutely incredible. In fact, it is the BEST sounding vintage Gibson flat top I have had the pleasure of owning. It sounds better than my 1935 Gibson Jumbo, better than my “banner” model J-45, etc. It is simply the best.

 1964 Gibson J 45

1964 Gibson J-45 acoustic flat top guitar with the original soft case and guitar strap. This particular example, serial number 187112, is in very excellent (9+) all original condition! This guitar is perfectly intact with NO breaks, NO cracks, and NO repairs whatsoever.

The Gibson J-45 features a very attractive cherry sunburst finish which is extremely well preserved and unfaded. This particular example is very stunning, and the only evident wear is that around the soundhole. Otherwise the guitar is seemingly near mint. The original cherry finish on the mahogany back and sides is rich and pristine.
