So I have for sale a 1974 Takamine F-310 serial number 74091607. If you know about Takamine guitars you will understand that this model was the first generation of the "Lawsuit" guitars that Takamine produced. It has that vintage sound that you just don't find in more modern guitars. These early guitars bring you back to that moment in history when you heard them for the first time. I emailed Takamine directly to verify the information I had, and this is the response I received from them about the specs of the guitar.

Now this guitar is 38 years old and it is still in great condition. It has some minor scratches, but nothing more than surface as I tried to show in the photos. Unlike the later versions of Tak's that have an S after the model to indicate it is a solid top, this one is an exception to that and has a solid spruce top. These Tak's are called "Lawsuit" because of there resemblance to the Martin & Co guitars of that specific period. I am not going to compare the two because it is about personal preference to which sound the musician prefers better. I will say if you are a member of any blogs of forums you will see that many people just love the sound, feel, and balance of these guitars. This is a all around great guitar for those spur of the moment backyard jam sessions or Kanikapila in Hawaii. This guitar in its 38 year history I'm sure has seen its share of get togethers, create some new memories of your own with it. This is a chance to own a piece of the Takamine's rich past. Also I just had a full professional set-up done by a local music shop to include new strings (Phosphor Bronze 12-53), neck adjustment, cleaned, and polished with the receipts for verification. This guitar will arrive ready to be tuned and played immediately! I can only accept PayPal at this time and you pay for shipping. I will have the guitar in the mail within 2-3 days after payment received and it will arrive in 3-5 days priority.

One question I have had is does the guitar come with a case? The answer is yes it comes with a hard case and the case will be what I ship the item in. Also I have had people inquire about The difference between the F-310 and the F310S. I am not exactly sure the difference between the two guitars specifically. The information I have about the F-310 was directly from the Takamine website contact us page. I was emailed the specs from Takamine serial number I have and copied and pasted the response they gave me. So my information came directly from them. I just wanted to add these notes so bidders can have more details on what they are bidding on.
