Decent guitar for the money...
hewhoplaysguitar 15.12.2021
...but not a keeper. She has decently low action for an acoustic, comes with a horrific factory smell that will get on your fingertips and not leave even after many washes (after more than a week it still reeks at times), has a truss rod that can hardly be adjusted after 3 full turns (mine still has not changed the action at all after a week of settling and adjusting), tuners that do not quite work as intended, plays unexcitedly (it has a sound that closely resembles wood, but sounds more like carton), most of the upper frets are dull-ish, the strap button is awkwardly placed and does not allow for good reach of the 21st fret effectively making it a 20-fret guitar as described at Thomann, the fretboard is flat and wide.

I'm not a salesman and have no interest in telling anyone this guitar has a little something for everyone. It lets me go through my chops while I'm studying away from home and that's enough, but I think the overall quality is overestimated in terms of price. The guitar to me feels more solid than natural, the glossiness of it doesn't help with this.

My conviction is that I will not look to keep the guitar indefinitely, and perhaps I'll be better off selling it. Of course this is all my biased, subjective opinion. Having played it, I'd rather have bought a second hand Yamaha from the 90s, for half the price.

Tolle Saitenlage und wunderschöner Klang
g00dg1rl 08.08.2019
Erstmal ein großes Lob und herzlichen Dank an Thomann für Euren exzellenten Service!

Optik: Die Decke meiner Gitarre sieht deutlich heller aus als auf den Bildern. Tatsächlich wie eine klassische Fichtendecke. Boden und Zargen wiederum sehen in Natura bei mir deutlich dunkler als auf den Bildern aus. Die Gitarre ist insgesamt ein echtes Schmuckstück.

Für die Verarbeitung gibt es vier Sterne. Die Hochglanzlackierung sieht absolut perfekt aus. Die Vergoldung der Mechaniken ist auf den Unterseiten bei mir teils nicht ganz akkurat. Das Griffbrettbinding hat an einer kleinen Stelle eine leichte Verfärbung. Beides schmälert den insgesamt wirklich gut verarbeiteten Eindruck aber kaum. Alle verwendeten Hölzer wirken sehr edel.

Den Klang finde ich einfach wunderbar. Die Saitenlage ist ausgesprochen gut.

belle guitare
michel 59 05.12.2019
après hésitation sur plusieurs modèles dans cette gamme de prix (pas toujours facile de faire le bon choix),j ai choisi celle la
je ne regrette pas elle elle a une sonorité qui me convient bien ,surtout en accoustique,une très belle finition (pas de défauts apparent sur la mienne) ,le manche agréable a jouer et pour moi pas de réglages a modifier
que du bonheur (c est mon avis)

Muy buena compra
R.Mont 30.08.2020
Una guitarra preciosa, con unos acabados excelentes. Es cómoda de tocar, el sonido es cálido y la electrónica es bastante decente. Me habían hablado bastante bien de las Takamine y la verdad es que no me ha defraudado en absoluto. En cuanto al servicio de Thomann, magnífico. La excelente relación calidad-precio la convierte en una compra muy recomendable.
