    Comments about Takamine GJ72CE-12 G Series Jumbo Cutaway 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The guitar is overall a great instrument. The only defect, in my opinion, is that the neck is a little too thick than most guitars I've played. Once you get used to the feel, you'll find it's quite fun to play and make music with.

        Comments about Takamine GJ72CE-12 G Series Jumbo Cutaway 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Every once in a while a truly excellent product is made. This Takamine is one of them. I had a J40 Martin 12 string that was very loud, but didn't have a cutaway or electronics. I took a chance on this guitar due to the great reviews. I like is so much I sold the Martin. The quality of construction is first rate. The action and setup needed nothing, and I'm extremely picky. Intonation is perfect on all frets. Oh, and it looks great. Although the back and sides are laminated maple, the top is a VERY fine grained spruce. Guitars mostly age from the top. Gloss finish is also appreciated as is the superb inlay work. You will not be disappointed in this guitar. It sounds great, is durable, and looks wonderful. The case is so-so, typical quality case, not great but not bad. It does the job.
