    Takamine tone and quality for an affordable price!

    This cutaway dreadnought gives a big, well-balanced tone, and is beautifully crafted throughout. It features a solid cedar top on nato back and sides. Rosewood fretboard. Die-cast chrome machine heads. The Takamine EGS-330SC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar comes equipped with the TK40 pickup and preamp system.

    TK40 Preamp Features
    The Takamine TK40 Preamp found on G-Series guitars features volume control, bass, middle and treble frequency slider controls, EQ bypass, a Notch Filter, Tuner and a Mid Contour Switch. The preamp is switched on by plugging a standard 1/4" mono instrument cable into the endpin strap pin/jack. These last four features are described in greater detail below:

    EQ Bypass: This push button enables the user to engage or defeat the EQ section. When the switch is in the depressed position, the EQ is active. Return the switch to the “up” position and the EQ circuit is bypassed. The bypass of the EQ circuit is desirable in some studio or live environments where external EQ is preferable. The user can also use this defeat switch to quickly check the results of the EQ adjustments relative to the original sound.

    Notch Filter: A Notch Filter is a very special kind of EQ, an extremely narrow and deep cut of an audio frequency band. The TK-4N has a "tunable" notch filter which empowers the user to select the specific frequency band that will be affected by the notch. With this tunable notch filter the user can "surgically" remove troublesome feedback frequencies that occur due to the natural resonance of the guitar and interaction with the environment.

    The notch control provides control of the center frequency of the notch effect. When the monitor or stage levels are too high, and the user hears the guitar starting to feed back, the player can engage the notch circuitry by pushing the "In/Out" button under the "Notch Filter" knob, and simply tune the filter (actually changing the center frequency of the notch) by slowly rotating the notch control until the feedback is eliminated.

    Mid Contour: By pushing (activating) the Mid Contour button, the user is selecting a pre-shape EQ that emphasizes the frequencies normally found to be "desirable" in an acoustic guitar (400 Hz). With the Mid Contour button is depressed, the mid EQ is effectively controlling "nasal" tone qualities while in the up position, the mid control can add punch in upper mids or help "round off" the attack present in this frequency spectrum. The user should experiment with the button and the "Middle" control to determine their sound preference.

    Tuner: The tuner in the TK40 is fully chromatic and automatic. The battery drops into the top of the preamp under the battery cover. There are "+" and "-" markings at the bottom of the compartment. Press the tuner switch to activate it. The note played is shown in the digital display. Up and down arrows will appear, when both are on and not flashing, the note is in tune. If the "up" arrow is flashing the string must be tuned higher, and if the "down" arrow is flashing the string must be tuned lower. The slower the arrow flashes, the closer the string is to being in tune to the note displayed. The tuner does not mute the output and turns off automatically after one minute. It can't be turned off manually.

    Comments about Takamine EGS-330SC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    i bought this guitar and a taylor c314 and let me tell you i love my taylor but the takamine is running along side of it saying look how much i cost! the cedar solid top is a real nice and warm tone and paired with a set of polyweb elixirs you cant go wrong. the tuner and electronics on board exceeding every expectation i have had... i played close to 25 guitars before i bought these two and i have no regrets. as far as i can see these two are almost simular in sound however the taylor has better craftsmanship and warranty.you wont be sorry if you buy this guitar whether from here or elsewhere..

    Disappointed

    By I.F.

    Comments about Takamine EGS-330SC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this about six years ago when I made next to no money. If you're looking for a review that compares this to a Taylor or a Martin, look elsewhere. My review is quite simply as follows: if you're looking for a beater guitar or one that you can take to camp, you can get a better sound out of something at a lower price point. It sounded somewhere between 'OK' and 'pretty good' when I got it and I had hoped that it would improve with age as the wood matured, but that has not happened. It actually sounds thinner and thinner as the days go by to the point where I really don't play it anymore. If someone stole it, I would not replace it. In fact, I'd be happy. Happier still if said thief left behind, say, two or three hundred dollars to defray the cost of something else.

    I love this guitar!

    Comments about Takamine EGS-330SC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar almost 4 years ago and I am still very happy with my purchase. It has a great, rich warm tone when unplugged, and When I plug it in to my Crate acoustic amp it sounds even better. After four years of everyday use it has held up wonderfully. The only problem that I've ever had is that one of the tuning pegs is a little jiggly, but it still stays in tune really well.

    Comments about Takamine EGS-330SC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have had many Acoustic guitars and this one ranks near the top in sound, Construction and beauty. The Cedar top adds a Vintage vibe to the good looks of this guitar. In this price range this is the best! Bravo Takamine!

    Comments about Takamine EGS-330SC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I went into the music store looking for a cheap acoustic to play around with at camp since I'm an electric player. I saw that guitar and the sales man had me try it and it blew me away. I had been looking at an Ibanez acoustic but that changed when I played this one. Great sound, great quality, my only problem with it is that the battery light doesn't always come on when there's full battery. Check it out and buy it now. Great guitar Takamine.

    Comments about Takamine EGS-330SC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I actually own an EGS430SC but the only diff. is that mine is a california style body rather than the dreadnaught. This is a great guitar but has a very distinct sound (dark and mellow)...don't buy this is you want something bright but if you want a quality guitar that's priced right (you get more than what you pay for) this is a good one!

    Good bang for the buck

    By ronlentini

    from Raleigh, NC

    Comments about Takamine EGS-330SC Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar because I needed a solid acoustic/electric to gig with. At the time I had a limited budget, and this was the best feeling and sounding guitar I came across. Sucks, but the time I picked it up (about 3 years ago) it cost me alot, and that was with a little bit of a hook up, (it then sold for more than what I got it for) but was a great bang for the buck then. At THIS PRICE, this thing is awesome!! I really like the way it sounds through a PA, but it doesn't sound bad mic'd up for tracking either.
