Hi daribo,

Maybe this could be of interest for you - check for Members Photo Gallery SEF391MB (voyager) -
I just bought one on ebay, coloured headstock and gold tuners.
Any feedback is welcome !

Very nice indeed Voyager, congrats :lol:

Looks like the same as mine with the exeption of the individual saddles at the bridge. I found that I had to file mine down a little in order to get the action a bit more playable.

I love it though and it keeps up with a much more expensive electro acoustic I own. Being a huge Dave Stewart fan - I couldn't pass this up either!

I'd still love the EXACT model he plays though, although these seem rarer than hen's teeth! I have never seen one with the natural headstock from the early 80's come available for sale.

I've posted the page that someone kindly gave to me earlier in the thread for your information - that's the exact model Dave plays. I believe our guitars are mearley the model it turned into in the late 80's.

A later performance of Dave Stewart can be seen on a live DVD from Candy Dulfer - >Live in Amsterdam< !
She has invited him for the gig to play Lily Was Here, and it's absolutely great 8)
I just bought the DVD in Amsterdam a few weeks ago at "Fame Music Store". That triggered me to watch out for the one I just got.

Yes, I saw that on youtube - very cool indeed.

If you want to see more acoustic work like that with the same guitar, get Eurythmics Peacetour if you haven't already - it's great. If not youtube that live version of 'Who's That Girl'. Also 'Angel' from their 1989 tour.

A very nice guitar you have there sir. I own an EF591ME and I notice that apart from the slimmer body depth, compared to a EF391, that the EF591 also has an aditional two bar pickup cleverly disguised as the last two frets, and an extra mini switch to switch between the two pickups. I was wondering if your Tak has this extra pickup and mini switch? Also I have an album of Shane Mcgowan (pogues) holding what seems t be a EF591 or an EF391.

Here's mine . I bought it in 83 and used it for church band for at least 20 years ,It's aged well
and I'll never get rid of it for sentimental reasons . It sounds better plugged in than it does with
a mic because It's not very loud but the tone is sweet and balanced . I've never really used the
stereo feature but I intend to one day . Still don't know if it is solid wood or laminate because
of little info available on the web . I had an local luthier install sapphire and ruby bridge and nut
pieces as it gives it more sustain .

Did Al string that up for you? I'd recognize his handiwork anywhere!
