Comments about Takamine Hirade Classic TH5C CTP1 Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Case:
I received this instument yesterday afternoon via UPS, tuned it up, started playing and couldn't put it down until after midnight. This is truly a beautiful instrument.
It took me a little while to get used to how "alive" this guitar sounds. I've been playing on a clunker for the last few years. The sound that comes out of this guitar is pretty amazing.
As far as the electronics are concerned, the tuner is spot on, and very easy to use. I plugged the guitar into my Polytone, and although my amp isn't an acoustic amp, the sound was quite pleasing. As I get more accustomed to the cool tube controls and eq, I'll be able to tweak the sound more.
I would, without hesitation, recommend this guitar to anyone. And by the way, I would definitely buy from Musicians Friend again.
