Takamine F-375S Dreadnought Acoustic – 1977 – Brazilian Rosewood Sides and Back Law Suit Era w GB
Just in Diablo Guitars is this beautiful Takamine F-375S Dreadnought Acoustic.
This is part of he infamous “law suit” era series of high quality Takamine guitars built in Japan. In essence this instrument was Takamine’s take on a Martin D-28. These guitars featured a beautifully figured Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. The back of the guitar has two magnificent inlays creating a “V” panel on the back. The top is Solid Sitka Spruce which is vibrant, resonant, warm and luscious to hear. This magnificent body design is mated to a solid Mahogany neck which is faced with a Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck and headstock feature a beautiful cream binding. The medium V neck profile feels perfect in your hands.
Our 1977 Takamine is in good condition. There are several dings in the face of the guitar documented in the photos above. There are also some very small nicks in the back and sides also visible in the photos above. The frets do show signs of wear in the lower positions closer to the nut but still play and sound out perfectly. The fretboard also shows some signs of serious wear in this area, but again this does not affect the sound and playability of the guitar in any way.
It’s been freshly set up with D’Addario Phosphor Bronze “Light” (.12) acoustic strings with low fast action. There is no buzzing in any fretted or open position. The guitar feels, sounds and plays amazing!!
