Wow - what a hint!

Marcus3608, 10.01.2016
I know that this lady is not really cheap, but I could only read a review about it - has already surprised me!
I have made the information that I mainly had about thoman sites, also made me on youtube about this instrument clever. Honestly, I must admit: the eye is eating!
Curiously and rightfully, the beautiful koa wood, I had never heard of it before. Thanks to God, it is not just the "bringer": the sound is balanced: bass, midrange, treble: everything is equal - simply beautiful!
It was amazing that I could improve myself, because my old Westerns of Cort (Dreadnought MR 780FX) and Jumbo (CJ-5X) I play for 10 years, and the sound is much better than some high-priced Western, Reinforced.
I have to admit that the necks of my corts are flattered, rather like a telecaster, the neck of the Takamine is slightly chunky ("thicker") between the bunch 1 bsi 3, and reaches the slimming that I used to Bin Strangely, I do not mind playing. Now I was really afraid: how is it electrically amplified?
Since I have a preamp in the Cort that can be combined with micro and piezo, which makes the guitar sound quite acoustically, the Taka had to prove itself once by a desk: in short, she can do it!
Unfortunately, the sound is never as warm as an acoustic in a room, but it can really be seen / heard and, above all, mixed, my band colleagues were definitely very impressed.
The wound strings did not appeal to me, neither sound nor playful; I immediately raised elixir strings (0.11) - then sounded really good! (And do not squeal like that!)
It is noticeable to me that the saddle was used but clean, but rather rough, apparently unpolished, was used: in the drüberfühlen were really scratchy! Playfully, this has no consequences, but at the price you could have done better! The whole lady is blessed with a cream colored binding, why one then uses saddle and bridge in snow white: no idea!
Conclusion: the most expensive acoustic guitar I ever owned, I'm sure: the best too ;-)! Had already Martin- and Taylor-Western for the double s.zbockt: but this Taka is it. Arigatou - to you thomänner!
