From Our Research Team:
An Affordable Acoustic/Electric from TakamineHere's one of those little bits of guitar trivia that never fails to surprise people when you spring it at them: Takamine guitars are actually named after the Takamine Mountains in Sakashita, Japan. It's at the base of these mountains that Takamine guitars have been built for over 40 years! What began as a small family business has evolved into one of the leading guitar manufacturers in the world. The company opened its doors while guitar playing was gaining popularity in Japan during the early 60's. As business grew, the owners saw the need to develop their skills and attract design and manufacturing talent. One of the most important additions to the company was Mass Hirade, who joined Takamine in 1968 and made great improvements to the design and build quality.

Great for a Newbie
by Jim Main from Auburn, NYI've been a keyboardist for 30+ years. I recently started taking guitar lessons. After 3 months with a "beater" instrument, I purchased this Takamine.

Sweetwater and Takamine are top notch:
by Steve Kunkel from North Mankato, MN.I've been playing guitar on and off for over 50 years and now that I'm retired I decided to get back into it. I purchased a Takamine EG260C and a Roland AC-33 amp, both from Sweetwater and have been ... read more [+]extremely pleased. The Takamine plays like a dream, and the amp is just what I wanted. I love the Roland battery power option, in fact I run it on batteries more than plugged in, it,s just so darn handy to grab and setup any where with plenty of power either way.

takamine eg260c review
by Phil Metro from Wyckoff, New JerseyThe Takamine EG260C (G-series) 6 string (electric) acoustic guitar is great to play, & even better to look at. For the price of this guitar it's more than i expected. It strums & sounds beautifully. I... read more [+]t got a 3-band eq , & a onboard tuner. The neck feels good, not very smooth, but it does play quite well. Quality hardware also, with woods that are known for their superior sound. The great thing about the Takamine EG260C 6-string, is that it won't break the bank to obtain. Great quality for it's price tag. I'm very pleased with it. And Sweetwater's 55 point inspection, ensures that it'll arrive to you ready to rock, with no intonation issues, or too high action. Which for a guitar bought through the mail, without even playing it yet, says a lot! I've have total confidence that any guitar bought from them will arrive ok!!
