Takamine 12-String Model F400 How Old

Posted by jimothy on Wed, 06/23/04 - 17:56:05.

I have a Takamine F400 & I am trying to determine the age. The serial number is 81121104. My guess is 1981. It also has a pickup under the bridge that out puts through the end pin. I think it is a Shadow Transducer. It is designed exactly like a Martin.

Hi. I've got a similar guitar with the serial number suggesting it would be a 1980. Mines a six string though, and I'm trying to find out the value. The model number appears to be EF 391-ME. It came with the 4 band EQ and the same under the bridge pickup and end pin. Does anyone know where I can check the value on the web? Thanx.
