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

    Saw it, Wanted it, Got it, Love it. I already have a 12 string "take" and it has been a jewel so this was kind of a no brainer with the specials that Musicians Friend Runs at the holidays.

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

      This GJ72CE exceeds the performance of my EG523SC G body that I love and have had for many years. The TK-40 pickup is exactly the same and is a great pickup. The deck on this new guitar is much smother and does not show the wood imperfections of some manufacture processes. This GJ72CE Takamine is a beautiful example of guitar manufacturing. Secondly it is simply a lower string setup, which is the only regular gripe on the previous G body. This thing is as low with no fret buzz as a pro model. The punch this thing has unplugged is very impressive. I did note the round sound hole and body width is a little larger than my other G body but it still fits my same case just fine. Man it is fun to play. I would recommend it to beginner or experienced players.

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

        I am somewhere between a novice and someone who would be considered experienced. I have been playing a Johnson acoustic on and off for 10 years. I think that the lack luster sound and bad action has kept me from really playing a lot. In recent months, I have been using some of my electric guitars a lot more and have been playing a ton. I decided that it was time to get a nice acoustic and I stumbled upon the GJ72CE after playing about 45 others at my local music store. After I strummed only a few chords and played a scale or two, I was in love. Once I committed to the purchase, I realized that there was heavy damage on the front of the body and there was exposed wood. Unfortunately, the price shown (I was told) already reflected a discount for the gash. Well, to make a long story short, I ordered this exact guitar from Musicians Friend for significantly less than what the music store was asking and it was an open box mint. The guitar showed up and it was absolutely in mint condition. I couldn't even find evidence that the box ever was opened. Kudos to MF on that. It looks, sounds and plays beautifully and I will be playing it for years to come. Thank you MF as you really lived up to your reputation.
