  • NGD - Takamine EF341C

    I pull the trigger on EBAY for a Takamine EF341C like the Boss (ok I'm a die hard fan). It's not the solid top model (it's an old one) but for 400$ with a HSC it's fair. I'm looking for one for a long time. A new one cost over 1000$ in Canada and a used one it's impossible to find under 600-700$ (even the all laminated model).

    I also bought a little PA and a LR Baggs Para DI... I'm ready to gig!!!

      Good for you, but may I ask why a all laminate guitar costs so much?

        I think that's because it's the model play by a lot of country/rocker back in the early 90's (Bon Jovi, Springsteen, Garth Brooks, Eagles, Toby Keith).

        A new one with solid top have a list price of 1299$. Back in the 90's this model cost around 1000$ brand new. Some people say it's impossible that this guitar had a laminated top because they sound so great. If you look at the Takamine website they say "spruce" for the top... I assume that is not a solide top guitar.

        I play about 3 or 4 of this exact model over the years. Everytime I was blown away by the sound (both electric an acoustic). Everytime I turn back because of the price. 650$, 700$, 750$ I also see one at 800$. No deal on that guitar here in Canada...

          Thats's a nice guitar... good score! That's the exact same type of guitar Garth Brookes plays and they are made in Japan.

          Here is one selling in Dallas for $750 :http://dallas.craigslist.org/msg/544613355.html



          You got yours for $400...sounds like a good deal.

            400$ +shipping. I saw that one on Craiglist. You're right about Made in Japan and Garth Brooks. You can ad Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi to your list.

              I receive the guitar yesterday and I have to say that I'm completly satisfied. I put Martin SP medium (god I love these strings) on it and play it 2 hours in line. Unpluged the sound is very balanced and loud. Not to bright, not to boomy.



              Plugged in in my little PA and it shine. I own different guitars with different kind of pickup (LR Baggs, BBand, Fishman, EPM) but it's the better undersaddle sound I heard for years.



              It's a keeper

                        Congratulations. Those are supposed to be excellent guitars. I guess that's why so many people like the Bruce Springsteen and Garth Brookes use them.

                            Sounds like you got a great deal. Is there anything unusual about the

                            pickup or preamp system in this guitar that makes it sound better than

                            the other pickups you are using?
