Perfect 12-string

charly_gibson, 04.03.2018
Since I've been playing guitar for a long time (mostly acoustic, but now and then one of my 2 electric guitars), I've always thought about buying a 12-string guitar. Since I've been playing together with some friends recently and one of them played a 12-string guitar, I was thrilled with the full sound, which gives some songs the "certain something". So I finally made the decision to treat myself to a 12-string and informed me on Thomann over the Internet. At first I thought of something very cheap, but then I wanted to take a few euros more in the hand, because I hopefully the instrument will be with me longer. In the price segment around the Euro 500, - I liked the Takamine the best and the brand has a good reputation for me. So I ordered it for my birthday.

The delivery was very fast, packaging was perfect. The anticipation for the first mission was huge and I was not disappointed. The workmanship is perfect for me, could not discover any mistakes. But playing a 12-string guitar requires some practice, especially in picking and when you were used to only 6 strings. But what can be heard surprised me. The sound is full, I've already tried it on the amp and can only say that I'm excited. I'm looking forward to playing with my buddy and will probably use it on stage later this year.
Super is also the built-in tuner - because the mood of 12 strings takes some time but I have to say that the Takamine keeps the mood very well.
All in all, I have found the ideal instrument for me and believe that in terms of price / performance it will be difficult to find a better guitar.
I have not been able to find any negative points so far and I'm just afraid that my 6-strings will now be more often in the corner. Clear Buy recommendation on my part.

Taking in hand this guitar you realize immediately to have a toy in his hand aside from the bad smell of wood (perhaps personal) but its build quality is poor mechanics that may seem decent are struggling to shoot, it is hard to play and the sound does not come out right.
Despite being brought by a luthier for the setup the action is always too high making it practically insuonable as you approach the bridge, the only way is to use a capotasto.
Too bad this time Takamine did Flop or better say that it is not worth the proposed price.
