Takamine EF-400 SC

Takamine 12 EAN 45 Cutaway www.sixstrings.it chitarre guitarsThis Takamine is the only 12 strings guitar I own in my collection and it is a gift arrived directly from Japan, after one of my last professional visit in the Country of the Rising Sun.
It’s a good one even if I’m not a great lover of twelve stringed instruments. I just picked up lately for a strum with some friends and the sound is full and crisp at the same time. Not bad at all.
It’s fine to have it around.

Ibanez S 5400 NT

Ibanez S 5400 NT sixstrings.it chitarreThis is a very special guitar for many reasons. One because is a pleasure to play and get in hands. Then  because it has been purchased in Japan and last but not least it sound in a brilliant way. It’s an Ibanez Custom Shop electric made out of a regular S5000 series but with a lot of differences, starting with the precious pearl inlays decorating all the body and the neck. The body is really thin but capable of producing a powerful sustain sound. The Floyd Rose tremolo system is the golden one and it’s very easy to setup.

Taylor 614ce

The Taylor 614ceThe Taylor 614CE is a very high-quality guitar and it’s one of my best. It is a stand-out cutaway acoustic-electric models in the Taylor Acoustic Guitar 600 series, which feature Sitka spruce tops with Big leaf maple back and sides. The body exhibits the big maple sound in a Grand Auditorium shape; a brilliant size and shape for all types of performance. The Taylor 614CE has lovely, high quality finishing touches including an Abalone soundhole rosette; Pearl “Leaf” pattern fretboard inlays; hard rock maple neck with Ebony fretboard; gold-plated Taylor tuners; Ebony bridge and headstock overlay; white binding; with “Tusq” nut and saddle. As with all 600 series guitars the Taylor 614ce is a Venetian cutaway pre-equipped with Taylor Expression electronics. Complete with a Taylor deluxe hard-shell case, the guitar retails new for just under USD $4,000 and while not an inexpensive guitar, is worth every cent.
