My first Acoustic guitar
P-MAC-C, 07.07.2020
I've been a bedroom guitarist for 20 years or more but i've never owned an acoustic guitar. Although my wife has a Yamaha F-310 that she's had for ages. I decided i wanted a 'decent' acoustic, something above the entry level beginner guitars but not something very expensive.
I've played Takemine's at parties and was always impressed with them, if not their price.
The Takemine GD11MCENS is a lovely guitar. Its lovely to look at and lovely to play. Its tone is much richer than the Yamaha and the sustain seems to go on for ever.
At just over €300 its at the exact level i was looking for. Not too cheap but not really expensive.
Its got a lovely feel to it.
It arrived in perfect condition out of the box, and the setup was perfect. A quick tune and i was away...
If your looking to upgrade your beginner acoustic but don't want to invest big bucks i recommend the Takemine GD11MCENS

Upper-mid quality guitar
Matyas S., 09.02.2020
I was looking for a great sounding and relatively cheap electro acoustic. This proved to be a good choice, with some small flaws. Sound is really good, intonation is almost perfect, action is relatively low, no buzz (maybe just a little here and there, but this much is almost nothing). Tuning keys hold tuning nicely, tuner is dead on, but the fret ends are a bit sharp. Not horrible, but enough to notice. All in all, for the price, this is quite decent. I'd buy it again.

Eine sehr gute Western für relativ wenig Geld
Wolferine, 04.09.2019
Habe mir diese Westerngitarre vor rund 1 Jahr zugelegt.
Ich habe schon auf mehreren Western gespielt und kann immer wieder sagen, dass Akustikgitarren aus Mahagoni-Holz immer noch den eindrucksvollsten Klang besitzen. Ein sehr warmer Klang mit sehr guten Bässen und dennoch brillianten Höhen.

Nun genau dieser Klang konnte meine Erwartungen in diesem Preisbereich nicht übertreffen. Ich habe im Thomann-Shop viele Westerngitarren in diesem Preisbereich ausprobiert und keine hatte mich vom Klang und von der sehr guten Bespielbarkeit so überzeugt wie diese Western.
Der natürliche (akustische) Klang (ohne Verstärkung) sowie der elektrische Klang über einen Piezo-Tonabnehmer im Steg sind hervorragend!
Einen weiteren Pluspunkt gibt es ebenfalls für den Tuner. Wenn man die Western über das eingebaute Stimmgerät stimmt, mutet sie sich automatisch ohne unangenehme Nebeneffekte wie knacken oder rauschen u.ä. (beim aktivieren/deaktivieren des Stimmgerätes). Das ist ein unschlagbares Feature für diesen Preisbereich.

Nach 1 Jahr und unter stetiger Nutzung, muss ich ebenfalls sagen, dass sich kaum Verschleißerscheinungen bemerkbar machten.
Ein bis zwei Mango's hat diese Gitarre aber nun doch:
Der Steg hat keine vorgefertigten Rillen für die Gitarrensaiten. Das heißt, dass die Saiten auf dem Steg verrutschen und sich dadurch die Position zwischen den Saiten verändern kann. Wenn man diese Gitarre mit bedacht einspielt oder selbst Mini-Rillen feilt, sollte dieser negative Effekt unterbunden sein. (Durch das Spielen ''vibrieren'' sich die Saiten nach einer gewissen Zeit auch selbst in eigene Spuren.)
Des Weiteren sind minimale Farbfehler am Kopfrand der Western vorhanden. Die fallen jedoch so gering aus, dass es in diesem Bereich völlig in Ordnung ist und das nur ein kleiner optischer Fehler ist, der weder den Klang noch die Gesamtoptik schlussendlich beinflusst.

_____________________________________________________________________
Fazit:
Dieses Rillen-Mängel ist zwar etwas ärgerlich... weiterhin ist der Hals noch nicht gut eingestellt. Durch einen Standard-Imbusschlüssel ist aber auch das schnell erledigt. Durch diese notwendigen Nachbereitungen gibt es nur 3 Sterne für die Verarbeitung.
Für diesen Preisbereich dennoch vollständig vertretbar und nicht mit extrem viel Nachbereitungsaufwand verbunden. (Da spar ich mir lieber die Taler, die ich sonst für eine wesentlich teure (und sehr gut voreingestellte) Western ausgeben würde und stell sie mir so ein, wie ich sie auch haben möchte.)
Der Klang und die Bespielbarkeit sind beeindruckend gut, ebenfalls der eingebaute Equalizer mit Regelungen für Höhen, Mitten und Tiefen, sowie das Stimmgerät.

Abschließend sei zu sagen: Ich werde diese Westerngitarre weiterempfehlen und würde sie auch selbst nochmal einmmal kaufen.
