          This guitar is exactly what I wanted, and needed at a super sale price. I am completely satisfied.

          I also would like to say something about the customer service I received working with your company when I returned on guitar to exchange it for this one. Everything was easy and pleasant, the fellows on the phone were professional and great to work with.

            Comments about Takamine G340SC Solid Top Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

            This guitar showed up in less than a week and in beautiful brand new condition. Tightened the truss rod up, tuned the strings up and played it (with a couple of more minor truss adjustments). Not a fret buzz, the tone is excellent, bright with good resonance and sustain, the neck and action are amazing. I feel like this instrument is of higher quality than what I paid for it, enough said! I only wish I had the cash for the electric model, is my only complaint:-)

              I just played this guitar today, and I just fell in love with it. I had to play today and needed to borrow a guitar, so I borrowed this one from my friend, and it worked out for me so perfectly. The wood feels and looks so nice, it is very beautiful, the sound is very consistent, you are in command, and it knows what you want when you want it. I want to get this guitar soon. Looking for a new one. So happy with my performance. Glad I got this guitar.

              Takamine G340SC - Solid guitar for good price.

              By JerryBrown460181

              from Denison, Texas

              Comments about Takamine G340SC Solid Top Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

              This is a good guitar for advanced users and beginners and someone (like me) who likes to try different guitars at different price points? Ha. The fingerboard seem wider than any of my other acoustic guitars but I believe it is because of the radius of the neck. Took a little getting use to but feels good to me now. I would prefer to have it in a satin finish so it would have more frequency response.
              Unless you are very hard to please, I don't think anyone who loves to play the guitar will not like this guitar (except maybe the gloss finish).
              I've been playing guitar for about 40 years and this is my first experience with Takamine guitars and I'm pleased with the sound and quality for the price. I own a AJ500Me Masterbilt by Epiphone and several other acoustic guitars by Ibanez and Dean and others.It comes with abalone dot inlays, rosewood fingerboard and a solid spruce top with mahogany back and sides.
              It seems to be a well built guitar especially for the price. I received it with the bridge very uneven but after removing it and a little file work the action is now pretty good. Not sure why it was way off angle( the 6th string had a 1/4 to 3/8 inch clearance from the fingerboard where the 1st string had about 1/8th of an inch). Overall a well built instrument
              Fantastic quality for the money, but I hear that from a lot of reviews on inexpensive acoustic guitars. This one is no exception and it does have a solid top not a laminated one which gives it a more even sound for highs and lows.

              Sounds fantastic!

              Comments about Takamine G340SC Solid Top Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

              This guitar is fantastic for the money. It could easily sell for $500, yet its only $300. It's basically the acoustic version of the EG340SC. The sound is great, and it's very versatile. One upgrade I'm going to make in the future is adding a tusq saddle & bridge pins, as I'm sure the sound will ascend to even greater heights. Not only that, but the guitar looks really good. The abalone rosette doesn't hurt either. If you're an intermediate player that wants to trash your old, $150 starter guitar and get something really nice for a small amount of money, this guitar is your best bet. It can definitely hold it's own next to a lower-end Taylor.

              Great for price range

              Comments about Takamine G340SC Solid Top Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

              This guitar has a really amazing sound right off the bat. The action was good but could be improved so I decided to make a small project out of it. Since I got a good price on it, I decided to put in Tusq nut, saddle and pins. The result is that I have a great sounding guitar for a fraction of the price of high end guitars.I've played the Yamaha F730S (which is good) but I like the G340SC alot better. If you don't have much $ and plan on having only 1 guitar, get this one. If you want one to carry around or upgrade also get this one. You can't go wrong.

              This is definitely not a taylor or martin but it gets me by and I am very satisfied with the quality and sound. It has a rich sound and is very good if you don't have a lot of money..the built in tuner is very handy too and I am in love with it. The downside is that it doesn't hold tune as well but no worries with the built in tuner. Overall good guitar.

              Nice guitar. i like it

              Comments about Takamine G340SC Solid Top Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

              i usually play Electric...i play in a band and have been playing for 5 or so years and have only owned 1 other Acoustic other than this one.That said, i like this guitar. Its not a Martin or Taylor, but its a good guitar, loud enough to solo, has the upper neck room, looks nice too. Very nice wood, not heavy but not too light, good bass and "umph". Its a good guitar to jam at the campfire with. I may buy a pickup for it and do some stuff live with it, give my bands music more diversity/character.. Overall, well built guitar, great for hobbyist' or gigging musicians. Get a case tho!!

              This warm sounding guitar will excede your expectations. I am still learning to play, been playing for about 9 months and recently upgraded to this guitar. It is just as beautiful as it is warm. After a few minutes of tuning this guitar sounded better than 90% of acoustics that I had heard before this one. This guitar will not disapoint
