    Outstanding guitar & service!

    Never in my 62 years on this planet have I ever ordered a guitar online. I decided to go with Sweetwater due to other reviews I've read. I called Sweetwater and spoke with salesman Greg Savino and expressed my concerns. Greg informed me of their 55 point evaluation on every instrument that leaves their store. He was very courteous and answered my every question. I'm so glad I chose this Takamine 12 string. The picture online doesn't do it justice. Once I unpacked it I was immediately impressed with the beautiful finish and hardware. It was already tuned and ready to go. It plays like a dream and it's loud. I mean the jumbo body really projects. There are D'Addrio strings and the tone is unbelievable.

    Takamine GJ72CE-12

    My first Takamine but not my last! The sound that comes out of this 12 string jumbo blows me away. It came in setup perfect! The TK-40D Preamp with 3-band EQ sounds great. I also love the Built-in Tuner! I also want to thank IsRael Foster for the great service!

    Sweetwater Rock!!

    My First 12 String

    Love that sparkle. This guitar is very well made and sounds much better than I'd imagine it would. All the parts and tuners look like they'll last forever. Was in tune when it arrived and requires just minor tuning now and then as would be expected. Action and set up are spot on. My hat is off to Jason Koons who once again steered me in the right direction with this baby plus other gems in the past. Sweetwater has some amazing service and sales folks. I'll be back now that I'm eyeballing a semi hollow body Gretch.

    Great Guitar

    Special thanks to Adam and the gang for a great price and perfect setup. This 12-string is at least the equal, and in most cases superior to instruments costing three times as much. The workmanship on all the binding, the frets, the electronics, are all first rate. A word about laminates. Most of them sound the same. This guitar is maple. If it were mahogany, rosewood, or other woods, you would not detect much of a difference in sound. For solid woods you can. Guitars age mostly from the top. The top on this Takemine is a VERY fine grain spruce of surprisingly good quality. The tuner is very good and the electronics sound very fine through my Marshall AS100D. Intonation is spot on, and the lows are very good. The guitar is well balanced. If you want a lot of guitar for the money, this is it.

    Great Guitar

    This is a very playable 12 string guitar at a reasonable price. Quality is very good and the guitar is beautiful. Electronics are supurb and the sound unplugged and electrified is big and bold.
    I am frustrated by the fact that it did not come with a case, no case was/is available and the size of the guitar (jumbo) makes it hard to find a case. As I travel and do local shows I have been unable to use the guitar anywhere but my home studio.
