Comments about Takamine G Series Dreadnought Solid Top Cutaway 12-String Acoustic/Electric Guitar:
First, I don't know why Musicians' Friend doesn't list it as such, but the model number is a Takamine GD30-12.
I pretty much ordered this 12 string blind because the model is so new, there aren't any reviews or You Tube videos to judge it by. I went ahead and ordered it thinking that if I didn't like it, I'd send it back. The only thing I had to do when I got it was adjust the truss rod.
I've been playing this guitar for a month, and the more I play it, the better it sounds. The workmanship is pretty good. I like the vintage amber stained top and the abalone sound hole. The tuning keys do a great job of keeping the guitar in tube, but expect to tune the strings every time you play it. I usually tuned the guitar a full step down to reduce the tension on the neck.
The only thing I not crazy about is the tuner.... frankly I've had better onboard tuners. I haven't tried the other electronics yet.
Even with the mediocre tuner, the guitar sounds great. You'll get your money's worth for sure.
