I have owned the EF341SC for three years now and have performed over 150 gigs with it. It is a quality, pro instrument that was made for the stage. The preamp sounds great live and the built in tuner is invaluable during a show. The three band EQ helps the guitar finds its place in a live mix well. There is a reason pro players like Springsteen, John Bon Jovi, and numerous other players use this guitar on stage - great tone, great playability, quality workmanship. It is not a 'recording' acoustic, though you could do that with it. I've had several high dollar acoustics that sounded better unplugged, but this is a stage guitar. It was made for the stage and the pro player and excels at that job.

not a Bad guitar but not a Taylor

I guess it is okay to like a guitar because Bruce and Bon Jovi plays it. But as a hard working guy who knows that These do commercial successes have at least 100+ guitars who cares what they like? I played this guitar when it was last on sale and passed on it. I like the EGC531SSC better for half the price. Yes this guitar has the flashy binding and cedar top but it should have something for the price. To me it plays good, sounds good, and looks good and there are a lot of good guitars in this price range. This one is not special in my book.

    Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've been a musician for 34 years. I've owned more acoustic guitars than I can count, but my early 2000's era EF-341SC is my all time favorite. I picked it up in damaged unplayable condition. Had the frets leveled, and it sounded great. I live in the desert, and cracks are always a problem due to the extreme dryness, and heat, so I kind of consider my acoustics as somewhat disposable...

    My guitar developed a bridge crack, between the bridge pins. But I was using the guitar, hosting an open stage every Saturday night, so I kept playing it with the cracked bridge, since it still sounded fine.

    Then I noticed a big long crack in the cedar top that runs under the bridge and out the other side. I had bumped it into a fan, and have a habit of slapping the top when I'm getting into certain songs... Anyway, the guitar still rings out like a champ, same as before the cracks. I'm still playing it all cracked out, and loving it every time I turn it up!

    Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have played this model of guitar for exactly 20 years professionally.. I have three of them now... YES, three of the exact same model since I perform professionally and need to have guitars at the ready for multiple shows... the original one I bought in 1995. I have tried other guitars and nothing compares to the combination of sound, electronics, and price for a professional grade guitar for stage... There is a reason you see this specific model played by so many celebrities... It is a true workhouse for live performance... Yes, it can be mic'd for studio, however you may find other models more ideal as obviously its painted which does change the natural tone a slight bit... but for live applications.... this is the best choice... period.

      I have to admit this guitar caught my attention thru JBJV. Read about it and decided to check it out on the web. Did not intentionally look for it but happened to find it at the guitar store! Was so thrilled and decided to try it out in the store and ... there i went, bought it just few minutes later. I also replaced the pickup to Cooltube. Am happily & proudly using it at my weekly gigs and events and it never disappoints me once.

      Great Guitar!

      By Randy

      Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Really nice guitar! Ordered as a gift, and with the 2 day shipping it came early, even with being just before Christmas. It also came with a nice case! Plays really nice, high quality like you would expect for a high quality Takamine, very easy to play, was bought partially because Takamine's have such good playability. Good sound, both I and the receiver really like it and would definitely recommend takamine's. I have the Takamine legacy koa, and I love it, This one has a deeper tone than the koa, because of the different body styles, but both are great!

          EF-341SC

          By Tucker

          from Michigan

          Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I've had my Takamine EF-341 for 25 years now. The guitar gets better with age. Over the years, I've had to put in a new pickup and electronics but not because of the manufacture malfunction. I strum kinda hard and hit my palm on the bridge as I strum, so I broke the pickup under the saddle. I have many other high end guitars but none are like this one. mine is really worn looking, has pick stratches all over it and buckle marks. The frets are needing replaced and its still my favorite. I had this guitar long before alot of the big name singers was using them so I'm not basing my opinions on them. This is just a all around great guitar.

          Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          The only negative thing about the Takamine EF341SC is I didn't get one sooner.It's the only guitar I use on stage.The electronics are top notch and sounds great through my Peavy Ecoustic amp or the PA.It's a beautiful instrument and plays like a dream.I had to tweek the neck a little,but I have never bought a guitar that I didn't have to tweek.My Taylor is still my favorite unpluged.

          Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I've had my EF341 since 1996. Mine has no cutaway which makes it rare I think. It is one of 3 TAKS I have owned. If you perform, BUY ONE. I use both EF341 and EF381EC (12). I don't need the Eagles or Bruce or Toby Keith to tell me anything I don't already know. For the money, it's the best sound and look and feel you could ever ask for in one guitar. I have a real job, but I play my TAK in clubs FOR MONEY every weekend. This guitar rocks.

          EF341SC

          Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          So after buying and selling/returnig 2 gibsons and 2 taylors I have found the perfect guitar as long as it is plugged in. Unplugged it hasn't much volume. But plugged in it has a prefectly even volume on all strings, is easy to play ( after a little work on the saddle), the fret board is smooth and dense. I absoutly love the sound and playability of this guitar. I'll stick to my Martin for unplugged enjoyment though.
