1980 Takamine Hirade Model 8 Cedar Indian rosewood

Category:Classical Guitars

Handcrafted in Japan, this is a very well preserved example of a Hirade Master Arte Model 8 guitar. The guitar is in excellent, ready-to-play condition and it features a pickup which makes it a great guitar for various gigs. Even though a larger scale instrument, this guitar has very good playability especially in this price range. There are no significant damages or repairs, but there is a small ding on the back of the neck, but in a place that is usually not under the player's thumb (see the photo attached). There is also a small crack in the lacquer below the bridge caused by a string.
