Mitch Easter-ish 1983 Takamine EA-360 Flying A acoustic electric thingy...


Recommended Posts

Hey, guys. Selling my uber-cool '83 Takamine EA-360 Flying A over on the Gear Page. Here's the ad -- will knock off $50 whatever the Gear Page price is for HFC-certified bros (so that would be $1150 right now)...

p.s. Got a Vector? Then you need this!

Here's a pretty rare (only about 800 made worldwide) 1983 Takamine EA-360 Flying A acoustic/electric guitar in natural. The guitar is very Martin-esque in sound and features, with a solid spruce top, nicely figured Indian rosewood sides, back, fingerboard, mahogany neck, and rosewood peghead face with inlaid pearl (mother of toiletseat?) "Takamine." This thing plays great with a neck that's more like an electric than an acoustic, and it sounds great either acoustic or plugged into a PA or acoustic amp.

Has a number of little dings on the top, plus a few scratches on the back -- there's a pretty good size scratch on the edge of the upper "V" -- see the photo. There's also a finish crack where the volume/tone control module fits into the side of the body. Frets are in good condition. Comes with original Takamine-labeled case AND original Takamine owner's manual.

MASSIVE stage presence and mojo. I simply HAD to have this when I saw a photo of Mitch Easter playing his years ago.

Asking $1200 paypaled, professionally packaged, and shipped anywhere in the Continental U.S. No trades -- cash is king! I've got 300 positive reviews on fleabay under my name bizzwriter.

See if Mitch wants it.

For Mitch I'll personally deliver it too!

He has tons of guitars, he really might want it. I live less than a mile from him.

I remember him playing one of those with Let's Active a few times in the mid/late '80s. It was pretty much that and a pair of RICs during that time period (around "Big Plans" and "Every Dog"). Always thought that was pretty unique, and have only seen a small handful for sale in the last 20+ years.

In a relatively unrelated "Plate of Shrimp" moment, I (literally) bumped into John Heames sister over the weekend in Winston.

I just posted my "final drop before fleabay" price on the Gear Page: $1,075 -- that would put it at $1,025 shipped and paypalled CONUS for HFC'rs...

Got a couple more guitars going up soon, too -- whittling down to essentials -- I'll keep you guys in the loop...
