GUEST,jeff Any 12 string players (26) RE: Any 12 string players 28 Jan 11

Takamine 'Logo Era'. From when the Takimine logo looked so much like the CF Martin logo Martin had to sue them to change it. It sounds great and has one of the old Takamine transducers that soundpeople LOVE. Solid mahogany top and laminate sides and back. The laminate doesn't seem to hurt the tone any. Had 2 Breedlove tensioners installed as the top was beginning to buckle. It sounds great miked or plugged.

Btw, when I played w/Bob Gibson in Chicago in the late 70s he was using a Bozo exclusively though I don't doubt he used a 'Miguel' as well. They were available before the embargo started in '59.
