Takaminie EA-360 Acoustic Flying "A' Guitars.

I happen to have two of these cool guitars. They were purchased Directly from Kaman Music in 1983. They are NEW OLD STOCK. One in Red and the other in Blue. I had the third one in dark grey/black. It was sold over 25 years ago for $300.00 to an inmate at Donovan State.
The remaining two have lived rotated from the one case to my office wall in bimonthly rotation.
I am StevO , I own a multiple generation Family owned Ma & Pa Brick n' Mortar Type of Music Store in SanDiego, CA.
The store originated in 1952. We grew to 5 stores in the 70's and 80's. The Great Olde Music store heydays.
Or, should I say hay DAZE...
We would attend the Winter Namm Shows in Aneheim, CA and would purchase entire Vendor Booths. This one year, we purchased the entire Takaminie / Ovation Booth. These guitars were part of the deal. They are so cool.
At first they would not release them and sell them When your spending 50k, I guess that made the difference..But why not better tuning machines?? Covered gears???

I have the Takamine EA-360 Flying "A" also ,same story as yours the shop in Fullerton (back in '85 couldn't get rid of it so I bought it for a decent price.
There were only 800 of these made for the US and European markets - I have only seen a few som were black red and I think blue but I sure like the natural spruce rosewood better

Considering the fact that I bought it for $350, I'd say I got one hell of a deal!

I bought one from my oldest guitar shop buddy back in '92. All the guys owned it for a while, then sold it back to the store. I paid 250 for it with the original hardshell case from Takemine. It stays in tune for a long time, and has always played well. The action is damn good but the tone is a bit tinny due to the lack of space in the body. I'll die before I sell it. It's spruce and rosewood with nice detailing.

Re: Takamine Flying-V is a Flying-A

Re: Takamine Flying-V

I've got an EA-360. I bought it new at a music store in Portland, Oregon in 1985. It's electric blue in color. It still plays great. I remember that it hung on the wall, unpurchased, for a long time. I made the owner of the shop an offer. It's been my signature axe ever since. There's a photo of it (while I was on tour in Japan) on my My Space page (Casey Nova, Willamina, Oregon). I've written 800 songs (700 bad, 100 good) on this "Floating V." It's still being played live. I will die with this axe in hand. Well, perhaps not literally.
