Here is one of 8 guitars I am going to put up on ebay sunday night. I had started selling high end Les Pauls on ebay a few months back and had some really great success with it. So I wanted to try some more affordable yet really nice guitars. So I figured I would post it here for fun first. I also have some really nice Tacomas.

<b> Takamine EG535C 12 string Acoustic Electric Guitar - Mint Condition - $395</b>

This is a very nice 12 string with many features. The most important feature of course is that it plays and sounds great. It will retail for more then double what I am asking.

<b> From the Manufacturer:</b> Takamine Guitars are crafted from the finest handpicked tonewoods, hand-crafted by expert luthiers, all providing players with an unmatched excellence and surprising affordability. Play one today and you'll play one for a lifetime.

<b> Takamine Electronics:</b> The TK4N preamp gives you a tunable notch filter and switchable midrange contour. Takamine made great advancements with their palethetic pickup, and set the standard for the industry. Other manufacturers soon offered acoustic/electric models, but none has reached the level of sophistication and performance set by Takamine. Our Takamine pickup is like no other. It's an integral part of the guitar's design, not a retrofit like most other ""factory"" systems. Six individual piezo transducers are embedded in the bridge plate where they sense both string and soundboard vibration. Takamine also pioneered the slider control preamp style for the acoustic/electric guitar. No other guitar company had the technological advancements that Takamine set in place, and to this day no other guitar company can achieve that level of quality in the market.

This instrument came directly from the factory to an authorized refurbishing center, for any number of reasons, such as customer return or small cosmetic issues. No structural issues are associated with this instrument. Any possible issues are expertly repaired by a team of professional certified luthiers (guitar technicians) or so small they are simply left alone. If there are any visible flaws it would be indicated in the description.

Another inspection of the instrument takes place here and every fret and all surfaces as well as electronics are carefully checked. Then pictures of the actual instrument are taken – no stock photos are used.

Due to contracts between the original manufacturer and refurbishing center, they have a used or 2nd stamp on the back of the headstock in between the tuners and wear a new serial number from the refurb factory. This will protect you against any unscrupulous dealer that may represent the instrument as new with warranty.
