I don't know about yours but mine makes sound that makes the most expensive guitar makers lick thier lips. It is also about as old as yours and is the most prized of my four guitars. Kerry.

I was wondering if you ever got the worth of your guitar, my son was just given one and we were just wondering.: : My guitar is dated 1-3-75 , model # 5047.It is mahogany I think, on the back and sides with a dark blond wood on the top.I bought it new in Houston.

Hi folks , The 5047 guitar is by far one of the best kept secrets out there. I have a Takamine with the same material and I believe it to be rosewood sides and back. Mahogany neck . The Japanese are real artist on guitars and I think one of the masters had something to do with the design of the 5047. I have played a couple Yairi, a 5000.00 martin,not mine by the way, and if it was to be a standup fist fight it would be a long one.
Enjoy the Queen ,protect it, and never get rid of it.
