Added warmth comes from the mahogany back and sides. The rosewood fretboard and gold tuners add a touch of visual class and smooth playability.

Nice finish, great sound, good action, stays in tune well. I have not been playing long, but the I like the way the neck feels in my hands, solid, yet smooth. The Fenders I tried just did not the comfort the tak did in my hands. Sounds crazy, I know, but sometimes it just feel better than others part of making a connection with what you are playing. I have a vintage Guild, made in Westerly and a old made in Japan Yamaha classical nylon string. The Guild has a booming bottom end, and is louder than the tak, but the tak has a balanced sound and I am not worried about it getting beat up like I am the Guild.
Tuner comes in handy,
great value, great sound, stays in tune, great action. I tested a couple of Fenders and low end Martins before settling on this great little guitar. My tak has better action, and I think a better sound, brighter than the martin. The finish is perfect with no flaws, nice neck.
great value, to get a martin that sounds and plays this good you have to spend atleast $1000 more.I was amazed how good the tak sounded to be so inexpensive. It feels solid, great sound for the price, well built, easy to play, good electronics

I play professional solo guitar in Orlando, FL.

This guitar looks great with the mother of pearl. It also sounds good when it's in tune.

There are 2 major problems with it for professionals:

1. It does not stay in tune. The machine heads are cheap. They're stiff and the guitar always drops in pitch. I already tune a 1/2 step down and my high E is a .011. I have to tune it back up a minimum of once per set.

2. The saddle (white strip near the sound hole that the strings rest on) is made of cheap plastic AND is part of the guitar's pickup.
That means when the saddle wears out you have to replace the entire pick up.

I wore the saddle out in abouut 4 months.
The strings cut grooves into the cheap plastic which then started cutting my strings.
I can barely get through one gig with a new set of strings now.

I would only recommend this guitar to someone who plays occasionally, for fun; not to a professional musician.

My Takamine.

By amandahellarad

from Canada

Comments about Takamine G Series 340C Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I'm 17, self taught and have been playing for about 2 years. I was interested in getting a new guitar for a while, but lacked funds. But as soon as I picked it up, I knew I wanted it. It sounded amazing, there are a few marks on it (but I don't mind!) and the price was amazing! A FANTASTIC BUY!

Good Buy

By USMC-1kx_o

Comments about Takamine G Series 340C Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar and it has preformed very well. The neck is smooth and easy to play. It's got a great deep sound to it. My buddy and I would play together and he had a ok guitar and this Tak put it to shame. He bought a Tak the next week. The built in tunner is good to go. You get quick and solid tunning no matter what background noises. Also the tunner is a breeze to use. One of my buddies thats just learning with some fat figures is having trouble because he needs some extra room between the strings for his nubs. I see it as a plus being an average size guy. It makes it supper smooth. I had some fret buzz on the G on the 12th fret but it worked it's way out. After shipping to my next post it started coming back.? I think I have a high fret, but I was stationed overseas and it looked as if someone jumped on the box. The guitar was all good. I have had it sine April 07.

Not a bad buy for the money

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Takamine G Series 340C Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Sounds fine for the money but you can tell it is not a professional guitar. Great for beginners. You can hear the imperfections after playing it for a few weeks compared to a more expensive acoustic. If you are going to play gigs I would purchase a level up from this one.

Comments about Takamine G Series 340C Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar for a great value. Occassionally it comes out of tune more quickly than I'd like it to. However it has an amazing neck and great sounds. Overall it's a great guitar!

Well beyond the description!

By Jared-bRgCx

Comments about Takamine G Series 340C Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

They say it's a beginners guitar. Not even close. This comes close to Martins and Taylors I've played. It's probably the best money-to-sound ratio I've ever seen.

Fantastic Guitar

By karlbr

from NW AR

Comments about Takamine G Series 340C Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I don't believe you will find anything that sounds better for under $800. The Takamine G Series 340C really sings, with a beautiful acoustic sound, as well as excellent electronics and a handy built-in tuner. Mine has excellent low action with no buzzing. There are some similar models with nicer looking trim, but they cost more, and sound just like this one.

Takamine G series Guitar

By Country Gentleman

from Manitoba, Canada.

Comments about Takamine G Series 340C Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought a G series Takamine guitar privately and I found out why the seller, (a woman) probably wanted to sell it. The sound was great but the set up was terrible. The bridge is factory mounted much too high for playing comfort. I immediately removed the strings and lifted out the bridge to get at and remove the shims from under the bridge. Then I adjusted the neck via the adjusting rod to make it straighter. The guitar now plays much softer and easier which it should have been set up like in the first place. I see many guitars at music stores that are set up the same and I think they actually discourage buyers by having them hard to play when trying them out. After playing guitars, Fenders and Gibsons, that are a pleasure to play, I would not want to play something set up that badly.

Best Value Around

By Zack N.

from Po Dunk, GA

Comments about Takamine G Series 340C Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar a few months ago, and I'm blown away. I like the way this guitar plays better then some guitars that cost thousands. Besides that, the finish looks great, but if I had it my way, I'd have a natural satin finish instead.
