In June of 1995 Garth called with an idea. He’s seen a music video featuring a Gretsch acoustic with triangular shaped sound-hole and it triggered thoughts of a custom model. The concept was simple. Change the sound-hole design of his EN15C from round, to the shape of dreadnaught cutaway itself. When I noted that a guitar-shaped sound-hole would “not be very traditional”, Garth’s reply was “Neither is a cutaway”. Of course he was right, and after faxing a series of rough mock-ups back and forth - the ready, willing and able Takamine factory was working on the first prototypes of what would become Takamine’s second signature model guitar, the Garth Brooks GB7C (incorporating Garth’s favorite number).
