Kent, can you double check that it is 650 mm scale and fan braced? I thought all Takemine C132S were 660 mm and ladder braced. Did they make a change in 1982?

Thanks for asking. The Takamine is indeed 650 mm.
Actually fan braced with two small cross bars. Would this be considered ladder braced?

Thanks for checking. I have a 1977 C132S and it is 660 mm ladder braced. So, sometime between 77 and 82, Takemine changed to 650 and fan bracing? I wonder how the change affected the tone?

Wow. Learn something new every day. I didn't know the C132 models varied in that way over the years. Mine's an '89 model and has the 650 mm scale. I believe it's fan braced (also has a bridge plate - I think that's what its called).

Good luck with the sale by the way, this a great guitar. I'm thinking I might get a set of those tuners for mine at some point.

And thank you to Kent for the sale, I'm the purchaser. Could not have had a more seamless, pleasant transaction.
The guitar is every bit as advertised, was shipped promptly and safely. Would highly recommend Kent to anyone for future transactions.
