Description: 

Like the GX200, the Takamine GX100 is one of very few solid body electric guitars that Takamine has made in the 80's. It features an Explorer style body, 2 DiMarzio made humbuckers with Ceramic magnets and a Tune-o-matic style bridge. The body and neck are mahogany and are put together via set-in construction. It has a heavily sculpted heel which makes it look like a neck-through construction.
