USA-Made Pre-Fender Tacoma 6-string “Papoose” Travel Guitar, Model P-2, Early Production model Serial Number #B0265040

The P2 Papoose was one of the first guitar models made by Tacoma. It was designed by Terry Atkins and George Gruhn. It introduced the paisley sound hole and the Voiced Bracing Support system. It was available as a 6-string or a 12-string (P112) guitar.

The Papoose

 

· Solid cedar top.

· Rosewood back and sides.

· Scale: 19.1"

· Condition: Good with various checking on headstock and sides (see photos).

* Small finish crack from bridge to belly edge and a split from top of bridge to pick guard (see photos)

· Neck is straight, nice action, no buzzing

· Original Tacoma Papoose plush hard shell case!

* NO FRET WEAR

 

I've had this about 8 years and have played it rarely in the last few. I was surprised to see all the finish checking that has gone on since the last time I looked at it. I have no idea how it could have happened because it hasn't left my humidity controlled home in 5 years. This may be an issue inherent in this specific model. The guitar plays great and has low action. The bridge and saddle have been replaced and there is one split from the saddle to the pick guard are a small finish crack from the bridge to the top belly edge. See photos. Comes with original plush hard shelled case pictured.

 

I have not played this is the “A” tuning for years since I believe it stresses the saddle and bridge which have been replaced on this guitar.

 

With its relatively short 19.1" scale, The “E” strings (#1) and (“6) were designed to be tuned to "A", rather than the conventional "E", making it equivalent to a conventional guitar in pitch, with a capo in place on the fifth fret.

Tacoma Guitars Tacoma brand guitars were originally manufactured in Tacoma, Washington. The company was purchased by Fender in October 2004 and became a division of Fender Musical Instruments Corporation. Fender has shut down manufacturing of Tacoma products, and new stock is unavailable.
