I have learned that this is a Takamine Hirade E90 and was made in June of 1982. It had an MSRP of $1,145.00 USD at that time. I would still like to find out its current value. Thank you! Richard

You may be interested to know that the Takamine E-90 was Laurindo Almeida's concert guitar, at least on his great 'Outra Vez' album released in 1992 (ref CCD-4497).

Takamine Guitar Model E-9-0

I also have a Takamine Hirade E-9-0 bought around 1984 and I love it's well balanced and powerful sound. I use Hannah Bach Medium High Tension strings. The only trouble I had was with the electronics of the pick-up and sound control case and had to replace it with another brand. I would like to know it's actual value.

Takamine E-9-0

I have a guitar on which the label says "E-9". It'sa Takamine. Bu all the characteristics of the guitar fit the E-9-0. It has a solid spruce top, what appears to be Indian Rosewood back and sides, ebony fretboard, and primitive electronics. I don't know if the electronics still work or ot. They did the last time I tried them but I rarely use them. Takamine has told me the guitar was made in 1982. I paid $400 for it about 10 years ago. It came with a hard case, and that included shipping. I've always been real pleased with it. The sound is fine and the projection is adequate for a 200-250 seat auditorium, maybe larger.

I thought I go it for a good price at the time. the more I'm learning about it now the more I think I may have gotten a steal.

And further information on this guitar anyone has will be greatly appreciated.
