This was my second acoustic guitar, and its been through two years of abuse and I've done everything except gig with it, I use an Alverez PD80SC live. It was originally a gift, so today I looked it up and I'm still blown away by the price! Absolutely amazing acoustic guitar that sounds NOTHING like any other acoustic anywhere near this price range.
I ordered this guitar without ever playing or hearing one. Not the best way to order a guitar but I needed one for a volunteer job I was doing where I didn't want to bring my good guitars. Well, I was quite supprised with this little gem. I expected the action to be very high and uncomfortable like most inexpensive guitars. Well, right out of the box the action was quite acceptable - a little on the high side, but not by much. The neck is slightly thick but comfortable. The tuning pegs are Grover copies and work smoothly and accurately. The guitar itself is a plain black guitar with rosewood bridge and fretboard. Depending on where you read, it could be a solid Spruce or laminated Spruce top with laminated Nato/Mahogoney back and sides. Nut and saddle is plastic and the strings are D'Addario EXP lights. The sound wasn't as boomy as I'd expect from a dred but was loud enough. You can still hear the individual strings so the sound isn't muddied - sort of a darker Mahogoney type sound. After playing it for a couple of days I must say it's a keeper. While the tone overall sounds good I'm sure it will improve with time and with a change of strings and a saddle replacement/adjustment with a Tusq saddle. All in all I'd recommend it to beginners and experienced players as an everyday guitar/beater.
Very worth the cash. It has a great look (chrom tuners, rosewood fretboard, great ebony color). Also it sounds GREAT. if your looking for a cheap but awesome guitar, get this one.
This was my first acoustic guitar, and I must admit, I made a good choice. I've played $700 acoustics since that don't have nearly the beautiful tone of this baby. This thing is amazing, worth possibly 4x the price. If your looking for an acoustic with chunky tone, a neck that is easy to play on, and a just hands-down beautiful guitar, buy the Takamine Dreadnought.
I've been using this acoustic for about two years now. Being more of an electric player, I put this takamine through alot of hell. The tone isn't amazing but it's freakin' awesome for the price. Nice, smooth neck. The playability is excellent as well, as the action is nice n' low. The only problem I had with this guitar is a bit of fret-buzz around frets 13-15. I recommend this for anyone!!
Great tone, action and quality for the money. I would not hesitate using this instrument as my primary acoustic guitar. Needs some tweaking for advanced players but for a beginner it will tell you whether you are a guitar player or not. If you are then you will meet your local Luthier at some point and make it play even better. Nothing better for twice the price and no one's paying me to write this. (But I wish someone would!)
I got this guitar for christmas nice guita nice tone nice look its a spruce top which is good 4 the price a solid spruce top is better cause its more of an investment but if you want a guitar with an awesome tone get this 1!
A great sub-$*** guitar. I was in the market for a 2nd kick-around acoustic. Takamine is known for their quality workmanship, so when I saw this on the rack with a $*** tag on it, I snatched it right up. Let me tell you, this thing is built to last. Great sound and REALLY easy to play- the neck plays like that of the $500+ models. Fot the money, I have no regrets on this baby!
I've been playing this guitar for about two years, and I must say it has grown on me. It is a great guitar at a good price for beginners and even intermediate players. If your looking for a solid acoustic, look no further. I put this guitar through hell by dropping it and not really taken good care of it, yet it is a very durable and lasting guitar. Overall, this is a great deal.
