This Takamine G FXC G260C Acoustic Guitar is one of the takamine guitars at guitar center that you can find. I bought my father's church an acoustic guitar seven years ago but it was not a Takamine guitar. It was just a cheapo kind but they are making a good use of it until now. I did now expect that it would last this long. If that guitar breaks, I will buy them a fancier guitar. That would be my gift for the church.
