Gary Moore’s Takamine PTS-015

As far as the acoustics, at least in the early years, Gary pretty much stuck with one brand – Takamine. Everything we know about these guitars comes from a photo taken of his personal guitar collection in 1985 – since Gary was rarely seen playing acoustics live.

Gary sitting with his three acoustic guitars, circa 1980.

On the mentioned photo Gary was seen sitting next to a Takamine PTS-015 which is a 6-string model featuring an arched spruce top, rosewood neck, ebony fingerboard, and a palathetic bridge pickup.
