Sounds great

21.06.2016
The guitar plays and sounds like a dream. Only issue however that the neck is a bit chunky, which shows on a smallish guitar like this but otherwise good finish. Generally a great little instrument that doesn't break the bank.
A few days on and bedding it in I have to say it has surpassed all my expectations. That slightly chunk neck apart. The sound is wonderful - I do not know how they do it honestly! When you strum its a soft even blend, but when you pick (where you might expect a quiet background poor tome,) instead you get this lovely clear loud individual notation. To say this guitar sounds like this for under £1000, well I am genuinely gobsmacked.

Good Western

22.11.2016
I've been playing the GN51 for over a year now. I wanted a western with spruce top and NEX corpus as a counterpoint to my EF341 for occasional gig inserts and to the Schrammeln in park and at the pond.
For the latter, it is almost too bad! First, she looks really good;) And she convinces with a sound that is rare in this price class. The (massive) spruce top can be applied quickly and correctly. I play them mostly unreinforced, but also with the TP-4TD customer system the sound is realistic. Of course, it is unreinforced somewhat 'thinner' than a dreadnought; But it is not high-pitched and gives the basses and mids powerful again.
The processing leaves little to be desired. No sharp edges on the fingerboard, no dents in the ceiling or sides. My showed a few gluing and polishing residues, which do not really disturb, as not in the field of view. It goes without saying that the quality of the Japanese Takamines is very good. As a main instrument for beginners a dream to use for amputees well and rather in the secondary range. It comes just to claim and use.
Conclusion: With our gigs in the park, the GN51 often comes to admired use. It can be played by (for me) optimal string position and distance fantastic. It is very stable and robust.
