Very nice and comfortable guitar
Alex0708, 17.03.2021
I bought it as a present for my daughter (12 years old). The child is delighted!
I'm a guitarist myself, so I looked the whole guitar - excellent quality. The strings are not high from the frets - surely thanks to the shop masters for that.

Magnifique !
La Compagnie du Spectacle, 01.12.2020
Nous avons acheté cette Taka-Mini pour 2 élèves, la taille est impeccable pour des enfants à partir de 7 ans, des ados ou même des femme adultes de taille moyenne.

Un peu étroit pour moi (1m73), mais toutefois très jouable et agréable ... on s'accommode vite de sa petite taille d'autant que ses formes voluptueuses facilitent sa bonne tenue.

La qualité de fabrication est excellente autant pour la lutherie les mécaniques l'électronique et même la Housse.


Le SON : Pour une guitare 3/4 c'est étonnant ! Le volume n'est pas à la peine et la qualité des basses et bluffante.

Cette Takamine facile à jouer procure d'excellente vibration et sensation de jeu... Je recommande vivement.

Schöne Gitarre und trotzdem...
Bottle-Nick, 15.07.2020
Ich suchte eine nicht so große Westerngitarre mit Cut, gut geeignet für Melodiespiel in den höheren Lagen. Die Dreadnoughts sind mir dafür einfach zu groß.
Die Takamine GX18CENS kam schnell geliefert und gut verpackt.
Sie sieht sehr schön aus und ist auch sehr gut verarbeitet.

Das erste Spielgefühl, das einem bei der passenden Gitarre auch gleich ein WOW entlocken sollte, stellte sich aber leider nicht ein.

Ein schöner singender Sound in den hohen und mittleren Lagen, in den Tiefen klang sie allerdings recht "drahtig", das war OK, auch die Größe passte.
Allerdings waren mir die aufgezogenen Saiten viel zu dick (12er) und die Saitenlage viel zu hoch - überhaupt nicht gut eingestellt, kann man so eigentlich nicht ausliefern.

Eine Überlegung war, dünnere Saiten aufzuziehen und die Saitenlage passend einzustellen. Dann habe ich diesen Aufwand aber doch gescheut, da mir einerseits der besagte WOW-Effekt beim Erstkontakt fehlte und sollte mir die Gitarre nach den Umbaumaßnahmen doch nicht zusagen, würde sie im nicht Originalzustand wieder zurückgehen.

Der eingebaute Tuner war völlig OK, am Amp habe ich sie aber gar nicht mehr ausprobiert.
Eine Nacht das Ganze überschlafen und dann ging sie leider wieder zurück.

Super kompakte Gitarre mit überzeugendem Sound
Klaus WGM, 02.07.2020
Gute Verarbeitung, solide Technik, ein sehr überzeugenden Sound für das doch relativ kleine Volumen der Gitarre. Super Saitenlage, sehr gut zu spielen. Leicht zu transportieren im mitgelieferten Bag.
Gutes Preis/Leistungsverhältnis.
