The underdog in this price segment

02.08.2016
Dear guitar friends,

If you are really so enthusiastic to take so much money in your hand for a guitar, and as I have time and leisure, in the winter of 15/16, to go to a big music house, please, please For the sake of this guitar, at least a glance.

Seriously: After 9 years with my Turner 42CE and the first good salary after the study I wanted to first get the Takamine EF-341SC, the Bruce Springsteen signature model. This had fascinated me from the pictures on this beautiful site here, as well as from the balanced sound examples. But without having this guitar ever in my hand, I could not simply order it. OK then.

I felt about fifty different guitars from different price segments in this hand. Including genuine jewelery, like the D'Angelico Brooklyn (which is also worth a look), but also the EF-341SC. The P1DC was in contrast to the other high-priced guitars but not behind glass, which is why I noticed only later. And yet I found them. Luckily.

In the Glashaus (or in the Proberaum) I tested the P1DC extensively. Playability is top. Processing top. Appearance - taste. Rather Stino, but here the inner values ??convinced me so much that I took my leave of the more beautiful dark models with a heavy heart. For my taste, the Takamine P1DC already sounds unreinforced warm, wide and brilliant, and in contrast to the EF341 or the Brooklyn still brings a good volume with moderate force use. This impression remains unchanged at the amplifier in the sample chamber. The built-in preamp brings the sound of the guitar really great. That's what all the musicians in the Glashaus have confirmed and recommended this guitar to me. By the way, I have never had a feedback after some rehearsals.

The preamp is operated with a 9 volt block. Do not loosen button cells or screws. Simply press a small lever and pull out the 9-volt block in a plastic housing. No fuss, no tools needed.
Perhaps it is not the most beautiful guitar in the segment, but certainly one with the best inner values ??- we do not want to be superficial ...

Perfect when you get a good catch.

ghooky, 09.07.2014
I have almost a complete day with the detailed comparison of all A guitars spent in the relevant price segment. Martin, Yamaha, PRS, Blueridge, Stanford, Ibanez, Fender, etc. The only Klampfe, which sounded similar to the Taka, was a 1500EUR Martin. All others did not even approach the P1DC in terms of playability and sound.

Unfortunately I did not take directly the perfectly adjusted exhibition piece, but I had a "new" from the warehouse. When I unpacked them directly on the spot, the strings were subterranean bad. The friendly thomann guitar builder said that there is nothing to be done and I get another as an exchange. This was out of the box also not ideal, but could be adjusted well enough (the really perfect exhibit had meanwhile also a happy new owner found).

Conclusion: ingenious guitar, if you get a good catch.
