I was searching trying to find anything to watch last night when I stumbled onto a CMT channel further up the dial with a guy singing a nice little country song in a 6 or 7 piece band. He had a nice Takamine on his lap but he wasn't playing it as much as just holding it while singing lead. Don't know what song it was and before I knew it was over and led right into a Reba video. Not sure which Tak it was but it was a gloss sunburst type of color.

It sure is a shame to see so many taks up on stage just looking pretty instead of being played. I guess it is the times, not alot of real musicians up there anymore, just performers. Most of them have a band that plays all there songs for them, while they strum a few chords every know and then. It drives me crazy. A good tak should be put to use and actually played by someone with some real skill.

Here is another Takamine being played on TV: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGa_YucOmBE
This is from the intro of "Breaking Bad" season 2 episode 7. The artist are "Los Cuates de Sinaloa" out of Phoenix AZ. This particular song is a Narcorridor. The Tak is a 12 string - looks to be an EF-381C with a custom paint job.
