This is a smaller Tak from the early 1980s. I don't have much information on it and I have found it to be quite rare with Google searches turning up very little. If any viewers know anything about this model, by all means share your knowledge! Thanks in advance.

It has the original pickup in it and plays smooth. Made in Japan.

I have no idea what the (OB) stands for but I do like the suggestions. The interesting fingerboard inlays are also a unique and curiosity inspiring trait...I have seen extra markers like that on some other guitars as well.
