Takamine releases Glenn Frey Signature Model

Bloomfield, CT (February 23, 2009) -- Country rock pioneer and classic rock icon, Glenn Frey of The Eagles, has relied on Takamine to deliver his music for nearly 40 years. Now, in honor of this rock legend, Takamine is pleased to announce their Glenn Frey Signature Model EF360GF.

Takamine’s EF360GF is a direct reproduction of Glenn’s #1 Takamine – the guitar heard across the globe by millions of fans on countless concert tours. The EF360GF is made from fine tonewoods and it features state of the art electronics. The model was built to Glenn's exact specifications featuring a dreadnought body with a solid spruce top and solid rosewood back. Other features include a concentric ring rosette, slim profile neck, black pickguard, rosewood pin bridge, bone saddle, GF inlay on rosewood peghead face, CT4B preamp and Gloss Natural finish.

MSRP: $1999 (includes hardshell case)

This 1964 Vibrolux Reverb arrived in all-original condition, right down to a two-prong power cord and a death cap wired to the ground switch. The author’s well-worn Strat is the perfect companion.

Fat tones from a sweet niche where Les Paul, Gretsch, and Telecaster share the limelight.

Copious, unexpected tones. Cool, useful bass contour control. Very nice build quality. Excellent value.

Heavy.

If you only pay casual attention to Reverend guitars, it’s easy to overlook how different their instruments can be. Some of that may be due to the way Reverends look. There are longstanding styling themes and strong family likenesses among models that can make differentiation a challenge for uninitiated guitar spotters. For instance, the Flatroc reviewed here has more or less the same body as the Charger, Buckshot, and Double Agent OG (which has an entirely different body than the more Jazzmaster-like Double Agent W). If you don’t have an experienced Reverend enthusiast at your side, it can all be a bit mind bending.
