a lot of bang for your bucks!

NeilC, 10.07.2014
For the price, and compared to what you get in this range, this guitar is pure value.
It has a sweet tone unplugged that carries through when amplified. It sounds similar to my 30 year old Spanish made solid spruce top nylon acoustic that it was bought to replace. Don't let the "made in China" tag put you off the G series, this is a serious, well made bit of kit that oozes quality. My issues are aesthetic, the tuners are a bit too bling for me and the lack of fret markers annoying at times, otherwise it plays like I need it to.

A nice clear sound

07.06.2016
This Takamine recorded very well and had a nice warm tone when I listened back to the mix.
Its a very light instrument too which is a big advantage.
I would definitely recommend this instrument.
