Open headstock with gold and amber tuners hit the aesthetics out of the park. The 00' size of the body is very comfortable to hold while sitting and the tone is warm and articulate.

Very nice couch guitar, sounds surprisingly loud, very crisp sound, enough bass for the size, but that will also depend on the string gauge you use. Tuners are great, nut OK, pre-amp with equalizer and tuner very good, I did not have a chance to test it on a good PA system. Action is very comfortable. After 6 months of use I had to smooth the sharp fret ends, which were initially OK. I did it myself, it was probably caused by low humidity. However, I don't object. I owned and tried other acoustics in the similar price range but this one wins hands down. I have only one complaint - fret size. They look like vintage frets and may not last very long. If you do your frets like me - fine, but otherwise may not be economical.

I?ve always thought of Takimine as more of a country style guitar. Boy was I surprised when I picked this guitar up and played it at the store. Breath volume for a small body, almost on par with my Taylor which says a lot if you have ever played or owned a Small body Taylor. Action is great for strumming or for playing around with finger style and blues licks down the neck. I highly recommend this guitar to anyone. Great value for the price. Perhaps the best value I?ve seen in my 25 years of playing.

I wanted open Headstock without paying twice the amount of other brands. I like takamine guitars The electronics and tuner same as my other takamine. Easier to play in and arm chair then the dreadnought size. The monster sale price was incentive needed .
