Re: Takamine Electric

sure do. Have one my self. From what I understand they are another case of the japanese lawsuit guitar. The pickups they come with suck. And you can't get more than about 150$ for one. With all this in mind i still love it. And still serves as my backup.

Re: Takamine Electric

I had one of these that I bought new in the mid/late '80s. I sold it for $175 around 1990 and wish that I had it back. It played great. The humbuckers sounded great for the home recording application that I was using mine for. They were not really that good for a live situation though. Mine was really great looking. The wood looked great and had a nice finish. The body had bevels where the control knobs mounted allowing them to tuck in a little for a really nice flush look. If nothing else it's a great guitar for the collection.

Re: Takamine Electric

I have a cream coloured gx-200, great condition, owned it since '95, it's got two humbuckers. My guitar teacher at the time loved it and every time a sub would come in they would go just as nuts over it, such a beautiful guitar, great sound, wouldn't trade it for anything...

Re: Takamine Electric GX 200 TB

I've got one of the same guitars, and have had no luck with finding anyone that has seen one before. Although, I have read quite a few reviews online and they have all praised the quality and value of this awesome guitar. I am, myself, looking for new pickups for mine and would like to know more about the stock ones to compare. Any info, e'mail me.

Re: Takamine Electric GX 200 TB

Hi I have beautiful takamine electric and I've been trying to find out more info.....I'm in the UK and so far it's been hard trying to find anyone who knows anything about them!...I'm looking to get new pickup but dont' know what I should be looking for???....the shadow that is in it is knackered and I don't know where to look. Can you help at all? Cheers. Joe

Re: Takamine Electric GX 200 TB

The GX-200 & the GZ340 came with stock pickups that were Dimarzio production pickups like those found in most Ibanez guitars of the time. I have found that you can put pretty much of anything in one of these guitars and they will scream. Good luck

Re: Takamine Electric GX 200 TB

Yes, Takamine made solid body electrics for 2 years and 2 years only. It's a pitty because they are all fantastic guitars. I think it was 1982 and 1983.

Re: Takamine Electric

Hi! I'm from Canada and I own one myself also.From what I found,they were only made for two years and only a couple hundred were massed produced.And yes,as one of the posters stated there was legal problems...thus they didn't continue producing them.They're rare but not sought after.

Re: Takamine Electric

i Have a Talkamine GX-200. i baught it from a junky that needed drug money but i have one! please email me if you want pics or are interested.

Re: Takamine Electric

I've had my black GX-200 TB since sometime in '93 I think.as far as I can tell it's all stock, and I wouldn't change a thing. Running it through a Hot Rod Deville it sounds more like David Gilmore's Strat than my Jag-Stang could ever hope to. A little hard on the feedback, but muffled up a bit, it makes some sweet tones!

MY TAKAMINE GX-200 TB

I HAVE ONE OF THESE GREAT GUITARS ALSO....AND TOO NO ONE HAS EVER SEEN ONE.

GX-200

Just purchased a cream GX-200 which is fitted with Gordon Smith humbuckers and upgraded grover tuners. I have the old original pickups, but I dont know the make; some say they maybe early Duncan Seymore - if anyone has any info please let me know. Paid £200 for it - looks like a nice guitar and plays lovely.

If more people knew how

If more people knew how amazing these things are, they would cost A LOT more. As a playing instrument, good luck beating them,

The first comment in this string is 10 years old, the guy says he can get them for 150??
Sure wish I could buy a TRUCKLOAD of GX200TBs for $150 in the year 2012...

i love this guitar

It's a pity I can't post pchs here.
I own a takamine black and red, solid body,two humbuckings 81 is a Di Marzio). I love it. Huge sound.
