Takamine EF508KC in "KOA WOOD"

Téléman, 05.12.2016
For me Takamine are the best guitares are semi-accousticque guitares. Esspecially when you play them amplified. Order one by "Thomann" before this Takamine Mini Jumbo is going to diaspear, esspecially in exotic KOA Wood, from Hawaii USA. This for a very nice selling price.

Wow - what a hint!

Marcus3608, 10.01.2016
I know that this lady is not really cheap, but I could only read a review about it - has already surprised me!
I have made the information that I mainly had about thoman sites, also made me on youtube about this instrument clever. Honestly, I must admit: the eye is eating!
Curiously and rightfully, the beautiful koa wood, I had never heard of it before. Thanks to God, it is not just the "bringer": the sound is balanced: bass, midrange, treble: everything is equal - simply beautiful!
It was amazing that I could improve myself, because my old Westerns of Cort (Dreadnought MR 780FX) and Jumbo (CJ-5X) I play for 10 years, and the sound is much better than some high-priced Western, Reinforced.
I have to admit that the necks of my corts are flattered, rather like a telecaster, the neck of the Takamine is slightly chunky ("thicker") between the bunch 1 bsi 3, and reaches the slimming that I used to Bin Strangely, I do not mind playing. Now I was really afraid: how is it electrically amplified?
Since I have a preamp in the Cort that can be combined with micro and piezo, which makes the guitar sound quite acoustically, the Taka had to prove itself once by a desk: in short, she can do it!
Unfortunately, the sound is never as warm as an acoustic in a room, but it can really be seen / heard and, above all, mixed, my band colleagues were definitely very impressed.
The wound strings did not appeal to me, neither sound nor playful; I immediately raised elixir strings (0.11) - then sounded really good! (And do not squeal like that!)
It is noticeable to me that the saddle was used but clean, but rather rough, apparently unpolished, was used: in the drüberfühlen were really scratchy! Playfully, this has no consequences, but at the price you could have done better! The whole lady is blessed with a cream colored binding, why one then uses saddle and bridge in snow white: no idea!
Conclusion: the most expensive acoustic guitar I ever owned, I'm sure: the best too ;-)! Had already Martin- and Taylor-Western for the double s.zbockt: but this Taka is it. Arigatou - to you thomänner!
