    What a value.

    Wondered about this deal. Pictures looked great, and it's a Tak, but how much guitar can you really get for this price? Turns out, a lot. Beautiful finish. Set up perfectly. Sounds great. The neck is flawless and I just tried a Martin 000-15SM ($1400) in a store - this neck feels just as good. Fine work, Takamine. Fine work, Sweetwater.

    Are you kidding me? Wow....

    The search for a parlor guitar that is decent has come to an end. Ordered this as I've ordered a few others (much more expensive in fact) and sent them back due to outright poor workmanship. My experience with Takamine guitars has always been excellent, they need very little rework out of the box, and last for an eternity. So, thought wth, let's try it out. Like a kid at Christmas, I about tackled the FedEx guy, ran upstairs and ripped through packing and wrap, and voila! Have to say, after 3 days (and I've played it for at least 20 hours), this little guitar is perfect.... The action is right where I'd expect it for a 00 body, the tone quality is excellent, and the electronics are decent (for the pricepoint, you cannot beat it). I've had a Martin and a Taylor that came that didn't play this nice out of the box. The craftsmanship is excellent, love the cedar top and the spruce split back, the finish looks durable enough to take my fat hands slapping around. Looking forward to pounding on this one a bit in tiki bar gigs, and may pick up a second one as a backup just in case. Can't go wrong for the price.

    A great little guitar.I was searching for a guitar for a younger person.When I came across this Takamine I knew this would be the right guitar,with the smaller nut width,and slimmer body.The action on this baby is nice.I wish my starter guitar had this kind of action.I also purchased a New Yorker Takamine case at Sweetwater which was another great deal,and priced right.
    A sweet deal only at SweetWater..!!

    Vert Nice Little Guitar

    This is a truly nice, and very good sounding instrument. The construction and finish are impeccable. It is astonishingly loud. The cedar top produces sweet, but largely overtone free sound. I have only two "wishes" (not complaints): Sweetwater should have a recommended case in the "accessories" column on the page for this guitar, and I really wish the neck were just a bit wider. It is really barely suitable for finger-style, hence only four stars.

    Sweet Guitar

    What a great little guitar. The guitar's finish is beautiful. Comes set up right out of the box. Sounds great and is an easy playing guitar. An acoustic/electric with built in tuner at this price cannot be beat. The customer service by Scott, as always, was outstanding. He is always eager to answer any questions. You will love this guitar.
