Tacoma / Papoose / 2001 / Natural / Guitar For Sale

The Papoose was the first guitar Tacoma ever made, and as they stopped trading in 2008, it’s quite a rare find. It’s size is similar to a baritone uke, designed to be tuned A-D-G-C-E-A, so it essentially acts as a normal guitar with a capo on the 5th fret. The advantage of the Papoose is it’s versatility - it has a full, bright sound without the compromises of string scale of a capoed guitar. It adds a wonderful treble quality in the studio for balancing out layered recordings, and works well as a travel guitar. It features a solid Cedar top with solid Mahogany back and sides, and Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, plus the very distinctive paisley sound hole. The guitar is in excellent condition, has an active pickup fitted, and comes in it’s original gig bag.

Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.

I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.

You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.

I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.

If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.

I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
