Tanara

I also have a Tanara electric, I have never been able to find any information about who made it or the year. What I can say is this, I bought this guitar with a hard case for $50. the body shape is exact match to a late 80's Fender Bullet, not squire bullet which is a cheap strat, my Tanara is Strat shaped but smaller in most dimemsions, it has a tele neck-solid maple, with a fender style skunk stripe, it has two enclosed humbuckers, one volume, one tone , a three way selector and a small toggle switch, which I have always assumed was a coil splitter, or possibly a phase shifter. Mine is black with a black three ply pick guard, the black finish has a very faint metal flake deep in the finish, not near the surface, as I said the neck is all maple, with a tele shaped head, it plays fast and easy like a tele too. If you google images for "Fender Bullet" it's almost exactly like the creamy white one that comes up near the top of the list. I think it was one hell of a bargain for 50 bucks and plan to keep playing it,probably forever. I know Fender purists don't like to hear this but I am convinced that this guitar was made by the same factory that was making M I J Fender in the 80's, it too much like those Bullets.If you'd like to discuss these guitars, I can be found over on the discussions forums USGold.

Old Tanara's Rock!

I have a 1987 Tanara TD-28S. It's a Martin D-28 style with a bit sturdier interior bracing. Solid spruce top...aged to deep amber perfection....with a crack. Beautiful purfling. Silver-nickel frets. Gold Grover tuners. Rosewood...(Indian...but it is patterned so nice...it almost looks Brazilian)...back and sides. I replaced the nut/saddle and pins with Wyoming Buffalo bone...and added faceted Wyoming Garnets to the pins heads. Then, added new Elixir 13 - 56 strings. It is one beautiful...(I mean drop dead gorgeous sounding) sounding guitar. I found it in a Utah pawn shop and paid $55.00 I'm sitting at my library today...and all I want to do is go home and play it. In fact, everytime I woke up last night...I thought of playing it. If you don't have a guitar that makes you nuts like mine does...you haven't found your soul mate yet;-)

I called the Chesbro distribution center in Idaho and talked with a helpful guy there and he did a bunch of research and called me back a few days later. Tanara is the founders grand-daughters name. The "S" in the model designation, not surprisingly stands for "Special". I haven't seen another like it....so I doubt they made very many. It is a very high quality...Korea made...instrument. Too many people discount the quality from Asian companies. Don't listen to the Parrots!

Value wise...my guitar is my favorite acoustic and I have guitars selling for 2 - $3,000.00
It's all about the quality and sound, guys. If you like the sound and looks...buy it. In fact, I'm looking at a 12 string of the same year...and it is on sale for $200...which is still a steal...unless you are the kind of person that gets a bigger thrill out of saying" Martin, Taylor, etc"....rather than simply having the quiet confidence of actually knowing value.

Cheers from Wyoming!

I have this very same guitar, purchased new in 1987 for about $350, I think. I had a luthier do a bit of work on it, bringing the strings a little closer to the neck.

Your observations are spot on! This is a wonderful guitar, very well-made and it sounds better every year! I took it to another luthier a couple of years ago, just to have it looked at. She said the neck looked really good and that there really wasn't anything else to do to it. I love to check out other guitars, but really haven't played on one (under $5000) that I would like better than this old Tanara. One of a very few really smart purchases in my life!

I have a bass and it kicks fenders ass. Mike suffers from small dick syndrome. Besides the ones he sucks. Which lccare fucking huge throbbing cocks. He wants one in each end like a Chinese cock cuff. MIKE suck dick elsewhere.

TANARA GUITARS has website

The Tanara website is now up, but I called them and they can't give you any info. When you call you reach the distributors. They also distribute for Ibanez. They know nothing about the guitars and will say only that they are built from standard parts so you can find parts at most guitar shops. They don't carry parts. They also can give me no information on the history of Tanara manufacture. The guy says the guitar is a cheapie, so they don't know anything about them. If I were Tanara, I'd be disgusted with them as a distribution company.

I used to have a Tanara. I believe they are the budget line from Ibanez but I might be wrong. They play pretty cool though.

Re: TANARA GUITARS

I've had a Tanara Les Paul Copy (cant remember the specific number) for almost two years now. I've played an actual Les Paul Custom, and this feels almost the same. Its very nice, but I cant find any other information. But yes, they are very nice instruments

Re: TANARA GUITARS

Three years later, I'm still playing the same guitar and I love it even more than I used to. Still cant find any other info on them, though.

Re: TANARA GUITARS

Seems like every couple of years I stumble across this post while searching for info on this beast. I at least found out its called the 'TG-100'...

Its funny... I paid 300 for it almost eight years ago, I have several guitars valued at $1,000 or above, and this is still my go to girl.
