Can someone please identify the make and (if possible) the model of this guitar?

At first look I thought maybe a Takamine or Taylor, but I looked on both sites and I don't think I saw anything like it.

I know the picture isn't much, but one interesting characteristic I did notice that might be able to help you in identifying it is the string pegs. They are unusual (at least to me) in shape and size and appear to be metal. They also have what looks like little indentations in the side of the pegs to use as somewhat of a grip to pull them out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

how about a shot of the headstock?

also, is there no label inside the guitar anywhere? look inside the guitar towards the neck on the neck block also. look for any pieces of paper, stamps, written marks, etc.

That's not a Taylor pickguard.

Take some more shots of the guitar though. The shape of the headstock would help a lot.

Thanks for the quick replies.

If I had the guitar, I would take more pictures of it. But that's the problem.

I don't have the guitar and that is the only picture I have of it.

If I had access to it, I would've been able to identify it from the logo on the headstock, possibly the shape of the headstock, the label inside the soundhole, etc.

But in any event, thanks for the quick replies y'all.

Anyone else have any ideas?

Thanks,

It came off my friend's MySpace. It's her guitar.

But here's the deal. I really like this girl a lot and I've been trying to impress her any way I can so I was going to look at the picture of her guitar in her MySpace pictures and say "Is that a (example guitar) Ibanez Artwood 30NT?"

Catch my drift? So basically I can't ask her about it, because that would defeat the purpose of me trying to impress her by just looking at the picture and just knowing what guitar it is.

Anyways, I've seen and played a lot of guitars in my lifetime and I didn't recognize it after looking at it for a while. So then I started looking around on various guitar sites and other various places and still couldn't find anything like it.

So I thought maybe out of all the hundreds of users on this forum, someone might be able to recognize it.

Again, thanks for the quick replies.

Any other ideas anyone?

Thanks,

It would be next to impossible to identify an acoustic guitar based entirely on a shot of the body.

Here's an idea for you, though. Strike up a conversation by mentioning her bridge pins. Like you said, those metal (most likely brass) bridge pins are an interesting characteristic. Most people use either plastic or bone bridge pins, ask her how her brass bridge pins affect the sound of her guitar. The bridge is an important part of the sound of your acoustic guitar. The strings drive the soundboard, causing it to move by first moving the bridge/bridge plate/bridge pins/saddle. If all that is heavy, the strings can't impart as much vibration to the soundboard, the trade off being great sustain.

Ask her if the pins are stock, or if she added them, and whether it's dampened or brightened the tone of her guitar, how it's altered her sustain, etc.

If the bridge pins are original and she has no tone or sustain to compare her guitar to, at least you teach her a little something about her guitar, and show her you know what you're talking about!

Agreed. I was just about to suggest this.

Bump.

What? Why? The matter is resolved.

*reported*

Edit: sorry to report you on your own thread, Peaves, but we've already told you that making an identification with that limited shot is impossible. If you're desperate for conversation, then talk about her brass bridge pins. It's something unique and something not many people would know.
Sincerely, Chad.

I wanted to see if there was a possibility that someone might could still identify it.

I didn't know I would get reported for bumping a post.

Sorry.

For a dead thread? Yeah.

i wouldn't really call this thread dead. you're fine, peaves. there is certainly the chance that someone out there owns this same guitar and will recognize the rosette, bridge, and pickguard. it may not be very likely, but i don't see any harm in trying.

My bad. I actually didn't know he was the threadstarter at first
