Quite Possibly the Best Electric Nylon-String on the Market

By Bill the Cat

from Riverside, CA

Comments about Takamine Hirade TH90 Classic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar about twelve years ago, shortly after the Cool Tube option came available. I've owned some of the best electric nylon string guitars on the market, and this one is still my go-to guitar for classical and jazz guitar low-volume performances. Depending on your amp, the room, and acoustics, the Cool Tube can take your breath away when it's engaged (you don't have to have it on). I have heard other professionals play Sand, Buscarino, and Phoenix, but there Hirade TH-90 would still be my first choice. Having said that, I wouldn't buy it for high-volume application in a big band, say. That's why I have so many different ones (I'll admit it-- I'm a nylon string freak).

Exquisite Guitar

Comments about Takamine Hirade TH90 Classic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

When I decided to get a nylon guitar, it was a toss up between the Taylor 914 or the Tak TH90. I have several custom Taylors and it was easier for me to pick a nylon Taylor. However, my experience with my nylon Tak TH8SS was not easy to disregard. I decided and opted for the Takamine TH90 and I am so glad I did for two major reasons. Firstly, when I play a nylon guitar, I gravitate around finger style playing that borders classical and flamenco. The Tak has the true dimensions of a true classical guitar fingerboard. Secondly, off the box, the Tak plays like a seasoned and matured solid wood instrument. It is loud and bright! I have the impression that its a small guitar but putting it side by side the TH8SS, the difference in dimensions are almost indistinguishable. Did I say its loud and bright? - not to mention the sound that the guitar makes when it is plugged in. I use an acousticube and the electronics of this guitar is far advanced than the TH8SS by the sound it produces! However, ultimately, one's decision comes down to the kind of music you play and where your comfort zone is.
