About This Listing

Thinning the herd some, so looking for a new home for this beautiful 2008 Limited Edition Takamine EF17C, all Koa dreadnought. This is one stunning guitar!!

These were an extremely limited release model, and this is only one of 20 that were released to the world.  They do not come up for sale hardly at all, so here's your chance to own one of the true limited gems that Takamine released for this model.

So for the details:

Top: Solid Hawaiian Koa
Back: Solid Hawaiian Koa
Sides: Solid Hawaiian Koa
Binding: Tortoise celluloid
Rosette: Multi Abalone Ring
Neck: One piece Mahogany Neck

Peghead inlay: Takamine name in Paua shell
Tuners: Antique Gold Gotoh open gear
Number of Frets: 20
Nut width: 1 3/'4''
Bone Nut and Saddle
Trussrod: Two Way
Bridge: Ebony
Color: Natural
Finish: Glossy
Electronics: TLD Line Driver preamp with palathetic pickup

Limited Edition Run of 20 released to the world

Includes original Takamine hardshell case (with keys), and has the original warranty card and Kaman hang tag.  This guitar is equipped with Takamine's TLD line driver and palathetic pickup system.  This is probably the most natural sounding guitar plugged in that I've ever heard.  None of the typical "quack" like some pickup systems sound like.

I can find no notable markings, scratches, or impressions on this guitar. Any aberrations, etc. in the photos are reflections and not scratches.  I will say it's gotta qualify as a 9.5 out of 10, just because it's ''used". The case has a few very minor scuffs, but that's about it.

This guitar when new had a price of $4,300. These are very far and few between to be seen or offered for sale. NOW OFFERING AT $3,000.00 plus shipping.

Thanks for looking! Serious inquiries only. Please message me if you need pictures of anything else specific.
