2001 Tacoma Papoose – £749

NEW ARRIVAL  The Papoose was the first guitar Tacoma ever made, and as they stopped trading in 2008, it’s quite a rare find. It’s size is similar to a baritone uke, designed to be tuned A-D-G-C-E-A, so it essentially acts as a normal guitar with a capo on the 5th fret. The advantage of the Papoose is it’s versatility – it has a full, bright sound without the compromises of string scale of a capoed guitar. It adds a wonderful treble quality in the studio for balancing out layered recordings, and works well as a travel guitar. It features a solid Cedar top with solid Mahogany back and sides, and Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, plus the very distinctive paisley sound hole. The guitar is in excellent condition, has an active pickup fitted, and comes in it’s original gig bag.
