Takamine F360-S

This guitar was first manufactured in the 70's. My one is a 1982 model...

Takamine F-360 SD

I own a Takamine F-360 SD. It has solid Rosewood back and side's and spruce top. 1978 model. Rosewood neck and bridge etc. Can anyone tell me anything about it please as it is not listed on the Takamine web site in the F- series. Just F-360S. No SD models. Thankyou. From Craig, Australia.

Takamine F

I'm not finding much info about my F series either. I have the original owners manual, but it doesn't go into depth about the model.  Mine is an F360D (not SD), in sunburst from 1980 I bought it new, and still have the original case and truss rod wrench.  It also has rosewood back and sides, spruce top, It has a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard and bridge. It is supposedly a "lawsuit guitar" although there evidently never was a lawsuit.  The logo was very similar to the Martin logo.

 

F-360S or SD

Hi David. I just found your reply.Takamine never got sued by Martin. Takamine had all the blue prints for Martin Guitars Because Martin wanted Takamine to build guitars for them. But Takamine backed out of the deal, Thats what ive found doing my research. Yasuma is the Japanese company that got sued by Martin for copyright infrigment. There was big bon fires all over USA burning all of Yasuma Instruments and the UK ,I have had a Yasuma acoustic guitar 70s model for over 40 years and it sounds great! It is a Red Sunburst, very little information about Yasuma guitars and instruments ect too, I think Yasuma stopped making instruments in 1981, the company still exists but they make furniture.Not any instruments. My Takamine is a Tobaco Sunburst and its fantastic to play and sounds Excellent F-360SD. Many well known muso's play Takamine Acoustic guitars. Pink Floyd and the Boss Bruce Springsteen ect. They make a excellent guitar!
