Of our threesome, this all-gloss NEXC electro is the one dressed up for a party. The body is all koa, while the cream-edged purflings front and back are more elaborate, the soundhole rosette sports an abalone inlay, and the sculpted-profile bridge has the split saddles that Takamine tends to reserve for its more upmarket instruments. At nearly £900, albeit including a goodquality hard case, it may be mildly surprising to learn that the body is laminated, but such is the cost and increasing scarcity of this beautiful, golden-hued Hawaiian timber that even with a solid top, let alone all-solid construction, the guitar would command a rather more exalted asking price. As it stands, its a darn pretty instrument to behold, with a fair amount of lateral figuring dotted around the outermost veneers.
