Superb playability out of the box Looks and sounds of much hire priced guitars I have owned
Nice action and tone. Feels like a lovely guitar compared to the cheaper ones Takamine offer. So far, it's bringing songs I love to life and it's a joy to play. I used to own a G series of similar price, it was amazing, this isn't far off, the head is different and it's a gloss rather than a matt finish. My old one was made in Japan but they have recently been bought by Yamaha and shipped production to China. Hopefully this hasn't detracted from the amazing competition they offered to the big brands. I'm a fan. Tried a Taylor, Martin and an ESP. Martin's sounded dull around this price range but the Taylor's were bright and twangy with an action I wasn't keen on. Pleasantly surprised by the ESP. Went with the Takamine again.
