  • Takamine electrics - post 'em if you got 'em

    Anyone else own a Takamine solid body electric?

    I picked up this GX-200 about 10 years ago for $100. Not a bad investment considering what they are going for on eBay these days.

      No one else? These things must be more rare than I thought.

            Bumping this oldie...
            Just got into my storage locker after years and years away in another state and got my GX200T (tremelo version) dusted off.

            These things are enormous gems. THey did have one weak point- the tuners were absolute garbage, but I fitted mine with Sperzels and it runs like a top.
            Seriously, if you ever run into one of these things on the cheap (or even not on the cheap) bag it.

            When I stopped playing, I sold off a number Fenders, a Gibson and an Ibanez electric. I kept this one and one Fender Tele. I'm sure glad I did.

              I used to have one and don't have a clue which model it was. I set it up for slide, and it sounded fantastic. The headstock broke and it was stolen from my storage unit a few years back.

                    Same here. Interesting.

                    I was just about to say, "Takamine Electrics? You mean Hamers?"

                      Kinda goes along with the Ovation and Martin electrics that never caught on.

                        Huh, I've never seen one before, and I didn't know they existed. I have an EF series acoustic/electric that is a great guitar.

                          And Alvarez---I'd like to have the "Scoop" model.
