I have fallen in love with Takamine as a company- every guitar I have picked up with their name on the headstock has been of exceptional build quality, and seems to be priced for less than the competitors. I did not have much of a budget when purchasing this guitar, but I honestly still don't think that I'd have walked out of the store without it. Always take user reviews with a grain of salt, because guitar tastes are up to the user- and, unless you're ridiculously confident, NEVER buy a guitar without having used it first. So I can't guarantee that this is the perfect guitar for you, even though for me it totally was- in addition to just "feeling right" in my hands, I was attracted by it's EXCELLENT build quality, incredible finish (pics do NO justice) and crisp, but mellow sounds both plugged and unplugged. The only thing I would have wished for was for a more tweakable preamp, although for the record, the one that comes with this is of excellent quality. So again, this may not be the guitar for you- but I can most certainly assure you that if you think it is, nothing about it will come back to bite you. Just an excellent, WELL PRICED guitar from an excellent, experienced company.

I just bought this guitar, based upon Takamine's reputation. Unfortunately, I am sorely disappointed by the guitar I recieved. While it is certainly a beautiful instrument { I got the transparent black- sweet!], I found the action to be WAY too high and stiff. You would think this could be easily remedied with a truss rod adjustment, but turning the nut has no effect whatsoever. Also, there is a severe buzz- not from a fret- it's coming from down inside the opposite end of the guitar. Like I said in the title, maybe I just got a lemon. I really expected a much higher level of quality.

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Took it out of the box tuned it and played it, built in tuner is right on the money,,its already set up, the sound even unplugged is fantastic, stays in tune, I own a few high priced guitars but this has a much better sound, I can't stop playing it, I got it to goof around with, the looks and sound no goofing around this is serious playing, well worth the money, great for gigs, or just sitting around with friends jamming,thinking of getting another one for my nephews to learn on,

As an owner of this guitar, I must say it is an amazing catch. It has beauty in both its appearence and in its sound. I also found the built in tuner very convinent. All in all, it was worth every penny.

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've been looking for a quality guitar for several months. The price and the fact that its a Takamine peek my interest. After receiving it I was stoked by the acoustic sound it a has a beautiful full tone. The on board tuner is fantastic very handy. The pickups are a bonus, very good quality. The craftmanship and "feel" of the guitar is more than I expected. As a internet weary customer I must admit I was extremely impressed.

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I purchased this guitar a few days ago, It is a great sounding guitar.I had to set it up lower the Bridge and change the strings to Light gauge. It now plays great and looks great. I own 5 acoustic guitars some more expensive than others. But I would have to say this is one of my favorite. Great Buy, get one before it's to late.

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

My wife bought it for me in black and the guitar is beautiful. The onboard electronics work well. The guitar is also well made. I have no problems with it going out of tune and the fretboard is very smooth. Unplugged it has a nice sound but plugged into my Kustom Sienna this thing comes to life.

What a great guitar

By gonzo

from Stuart florida

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I was very apprehensive in buying a guitar on-line without playing it first. I decided to take a chance on this guitar and ordered one in time for Christmas. I have an old acoustic without a pick up and a solid body lectric and wanted an acoutic with an internal pick up of reasonable quality that did not cost a bundle. I did a fair amount of "on line" comparisons that were heavily weighted by product reviews. I've now owned it 1 week and just love the instrument. The sound quality both plugged and unplugged is outstanding. The G,D,B and E strings ring clear as bell, both open and fretted all the way down the neck. The string action is just a bit higher than I prefer but it's pretty close out of the box. The finish is flawless.My only nit-pick is that the tuners seem to have a bit more back-lash than I am used to. Having said that, I've played the guitar hard and let it set overnight and it stayed in tune. I am very happy with the instrument. I would recommend without hesitation.

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

What a beautiful easy playing great sounding guitar. As nice as much higher priced guitars. I have the blue quilt. I originally ordered the black but that order was canceled so I reluctently told MF to send me the blue . I couldn't be happier. The picture looks purple but it is the prettiest blue I think I have ever seen. Beautiful quilt. Perfect neck although I will change to lighter strings. You will not be disappointed.

You can't miss

By rundog232

from Decatur IL.

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

You just can't miss if you get one from the lot I did, I bought one for my brother and was so impressed I bought one for my self. I have a Gibson and although I don't know that it can make those tones it's much easier to play "recovering from a broken thumb and hand" its ideal BRIGHT WONDERFULL sound especial plugged in but it doesn't have to be to sound good. With these prices I may buy another, I've played 2k guitar that didn't sound this good. One thing I bought the purple one, well it's not it's a beautiful blue. If met the painter I would give him $20.00 this is the first one I would call a perfect quilt top .

Great Guitar

By Tommy-B8UVF

from Jackson, Mi

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I just got this guitar two days ago...it's incredible. Great sound, and amazing action and intonation straight out of the store. I haven't gotten it set up yet, but it currently doesn't need it! :) When I do I'm certainly going to buy Elixirs :DThe tuner works great as well as the pickup. I plugged into a Marshall amp and the guitar sounded absolutely brilliant from the amp, amazingly clean sound. I'd definitely recommend this instrument.

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Got this guitar a while back and was pleased with the workmanship. After Having it set up and changing the strings to Martin extra lights, I find this to be a fantistic sounding guitar. I had a pro play it tonight and he said he would not hesitate to play this guitar on stage. Get one while you can. You won't be sorry.

Okay for the price

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The things I like about this guitar is that it stays in tune well. The onboard electronics are good and the look is nice. The main problem I have with this guitar is that there is an awful buzz. Mind you, I had the guitar professionaly set up and change the strings to elixrs 13's. Another dissapointment is that unpluged the guitar sound just okay at best. Save up a little more and get a better Takamine.

Good guitar

By Alan-w3BzM

from Oregon

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've been playing my fender strat squier for about a year now, and its a nice change. I just opened this guitar for christmas, and I just started playing, it was great. It had a tuner already built in so I didn't even have to go get mine. The action is great it doesnt need any adjustment and the tuner is accurate. But the tuning keys are the only flaw or.... disadvantage. They are very stiff and hard hard to tune with. But overall I love this guitar. I highly recommend it to anyone.
