    The feel of a small-bodied guitar with impressive performance.

    Built on Takamine's signature NEX design, the EG481SCX acoustic-electric guitar sports a top with a pleasing, rounded profile that is narrow at the waist, yet broad behind the bridge, creating a soundboard that offers a balanced response with deep bass, clear treble, and a sweet, round midrange that projects well. The solid spruce top offers balanced tone, while the mahogany body brings out full projection. The Takamine guitar's dovetail neck joint, rosewood bridge and fretboard, and mahogany neck offer plenty of sustain, and the asymmetrical neck and 1-5/8" nut width provide comfort for intricate fretboard movements.

    At the heart of this Takamine G NEX acoustic guitar is an impressive electronics system, letting you amplify your sound with intuitive frequency controls. The CP-100 pickup is an innovative pickup design over the conventional under the saddle piezo design. It uses a U-shaped aluminum rail, securing the pickup and saddle for a snug fit and balanced response from the instrument, not just pressure on the strings. The Takamine TP4T preamplifier features a gain knob; a tuner; an active shelving system EQ with bass, middle, and treble frequency slider controls; and a low battery light.

    The Takamine EG481SCX guitar's gold hardware, gold and amber pearl tuners, and gloss black finish adds a striking touch to this already beautiful instrument.

    this guitar is a good deal for the $. the action is set perfect (for me) right out of the box. the sound projection is quite good. the cutaway is a huge plus too.
    the built-in tuner is really great and handy.
    rec'd another deal from MF........... great guitar at a nice price!

    Nice guitar, but...

    Comments about Takamine G NEX EG481SCX Black Chain Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Just got this guitar, the Takamine EG481SCX, a few days ago. It COULD have been a great guitar--and maybe other ones are--but mine had a few things wrong with it (so I'm returning it). There were a few small dents on the soundboard and a few areas on the fretboard where the varnish was peeling. There were vibrations (probably caused by the cables running inside the guitar) when I played a low A. Again, those problems may be exclusive the particular guitar I received.Another potential issue is THERE IS NO PICKGUARD. I play mostly fingerstyle, but if you like to strum, you might make marks on the soundboard.I would recommend this guitar only if you exclusively play fingerstyle and only if you get one in pristine condition.

    Comments about Takamine G NEX EG481SCX Black Chain Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Great sounding guitar! Took it out of the box, tuned it and started playing. The set up is almost perfect. As a matter of fact, I took it that very same night and played a gig...no problems, only compliments! The only drawback is the written description is incorrect. It says it has gold and amber pearl tuners and gold hardware. Everything is silver as shown in the picure. Still it is a pretty guitar.
