Acoustically :Upon playing it right at the store i had a great experience. Playing mostly Blues and Folk at the time, it had the low end and perfect balance of highs that just made it sound perfect for a dynamic player. It has suprising volume acoustically. Playing unplugged with Band mates and buddies will leave you to discover how loud this guitar truely is. Not a bad thing though, it will help you learn how to play dynamically, which learning isnt a con.
Electronically :Playing plugged in it stays true to what you would expect for the price what your working with. It sounds good, and captures a suprising amount of the tone and range. A the Tuner built-in is fairly accurate but will take a little bit of a good ear to truely hear when your spot on in tune.
SUMMARY :Having this guitar for 10 years now, if you can get one it is certainly great. With alittle TLC and setting up after the fact you can get this guitar to feel and play like any $2000+ guitar. The sound is great for blues and folk, and has great amplitude acoustically. Electronically it will do the job just fine.
This guitar is great for jumping the gap between your first guitar and a guitar you would wanna play professionally, or even professionally if it fits your bill. Id say electronically eventually youll have to upgrade system or get a better acoustic electric, but truely anyone would tell you, if you want an acoustic to sound beautiful, Mic it, and if you go that route you could play this guitar forever!

If you are looking for quality craftmanship you must find out where the product was made. Don't settle for "Made in China". This Takamine is really beautiful. Made in Japan, you can see and hear the difference.
Purchased this guitar back in December 2006 and what a great decision that turned out to be. This guitar is a cannon and easily contends with any high dollar guitar in todays market. It's versatility is where this thing beats other guitars out. Whether you are flatpicking, strumming heavily, or playing softly, it resounds and responds with great accuracy. Another Pro is the on board electronics. I lead worship for a church and guys with $5,000 custom made taylor guitars have commented on how rich and warm this thing sounds through a PA system. That has to say something. This guitar is something special and has only improved in sound as the years have passed. Turns out they are discontinuing this model. If you are in the market right now you can't beat this price. Do something smart and check this thing out, you will not regret it.
I had been looking for an acoustic-electric, and when I saw this one, I figured I would give it a try, and am I ever glad that I did. The sound is amazing. I have a Taylor 310 and a Martin D15, as well as a Gibson Les Paul, and an Epiphone Dot flameburst. I have also owned Fender Strats, Teles, and meny other guitars over the years. The sound and ease of play of this Takamine rivals any of them. It sounds great unplugged, and only gets better through the amp. For the special price that it is at right now, I don't know how anyone could come close to the value with anything else. If you have been looking for an acoustic-electric, buy this one before they are gone.
I was looking at this guitar after reading such great reviews elsewhere. I checked other sites and then came to MF where I was astounded to find this Tak for cheaper than I could find it for anywhere else. Even used, people were asking $50-100 more than what I paid. As it turns out this model is being discontinued, hence the super low price. GOOD. You cannot beat this guitar for this price right now. You couldn't beat it at $150 bucks more... and it contends with the big dogs costing thousands. I prefer the stripped down and simplistic appearance. It's almost a signature I've developed in my gigging as every acoustic I've been on stage with has had the same simple appearance. 100% satisfied. Recording a song in a matter of minutes with my new Tak, right out of the box!
Just got this in today, picked it up on my lunch break and was barely able to put it down to go back to work. This thing sounds and plays BEAUTIFUL. Don't even hesitate at this price, just go for it.
Just ordered and received this guitar. I must say what you've heard and read is all true. I would like to add one more description. The sustain plus the intonation plus the harmonics are more than wonderful. Make no mistake, they are magical!
I have a 20-year-old EN10, which is essentially this same guitar, without the cutaway. It is my workhorse. I gig with it. I record with it. It's an awesome guitar. Guys working the sound boards love it. I paid more than $700 for mine in 1989. So this is a great value.
This guitar is awesome! I went to several guitar stores and played them from $400 to $3000, and none of them sounded like this one did! the bass has amazing sound and tone. everyone that has played it says it sounds amazing. I can't put it down when i pick it up!.. I would buy it 10 more times!
I have gotten the guitar of my dreams. I have been playing guitar for over 22 years and have owned many acoustic guitars, but this beats them all, by far. I had this guitar on layaway for over 6 months, and I thought that it would be just another addition to my collection. I always belived that any guitar could sound good if you knew how to play. But I brought this one home and it has totally blown me away. Even my wife said wow!, it is you. It's like I had to learn how to play all over again for just this guitar- unbelievable sound and tone. I don't play plugged in so I can't comment on that aspect. But belive me when I say, I am ready to get rid of my other acoustics, the only reason I don't is because of sentimental value. If you're looking for a fanatastic and great looking guitar at an affordable price, do it. It is truly (as I call it) the "Lexus" of guitars.
