Comfortable body size, unique tonewoods, vintage vibe, and state-of-the-art preamp.

The Takamine G Series EG630S New Yorker Acoustic-Electric Guitar rides the wave of popularity that small-bodied guitars are enjoying. Most players have a dreadnought or a larger bodied guitar and a New Yorker body would make an interesting and unique addition to their guitar arsenal.

This Takamine EG630S New Yorker has a classic; "antique" appeal that is evocative of guitars made and played in the 1920s.

For the EG630S, Takamine chose a solid red cedar soundboard, which compliments the small body very well. Cedar responds well to a light touch and produces a very warm and harmonically rich tone even with such a diminutive soundboard.

The back and sides are a very special flamed mahogany. This rare and unique tonewood is chosen for its stunning visual appeal and is sure to inspire many hours of playtime.

And to top off the "vintage" vibe, Takamine has for the very first time created a steel string G Series guitar with a slotted headstock. The look of the headstock is pure tradition and the gold and ivory tuners finish off the classic character of the instrument.

The "vintage violin" finish evokes Images from the past. It is possible to imagine this guitar in the hands of some "bluesman" in an old photograph.

The decades-old design notwithstanding, this is a totally modern performance instrument fully equipped with a state-of-the-art electronic system featuring the TP4T preamp with 3 Band Graphic EQ and built-in tuner.

  • A fine little guitar-- Throw in a gig bag, GC!

    As reviewed by Bruce Kula on 2/21/2012

    First of all, the pictures don't do it justice. The flame maple veneer on mine is stunning; add the black-trimmed ivory purfling, gold hardware with white knobs, abalone rosette, and sunburst (what Takamine calls "gloss vintage violin") finish, and it looks like something from Gene Autry's collection. The finish is flawless, and most of the interior joints clean, without visible glue. The solid cedar top is punchy and responsive; it produces a sweet sound when played with a delicate touch, a rather harsh one when played hard with a pick. It has blossomed a bit with a couple weeks' playing. Small and slim, it's comfortable to play. It's a 00-size, not a tiny parlor guitar. The action was high out of the box; a quarter-turn of the truss rod solved that. The round, beefy neck won't be for everyone. The centers of the top E and bottom E are 1.375" apart at the nut, the same as my Martin dreadnought. The small (3.75") soundhole might be hard to find or modify a cover for. The built-in tuner is handy, although it takes some getting used to. Preamp battery replacement is an offstage job, not because the battery is hard to get at, but because you need a good light to tell which way it goes. I paid $470 during a general 12-percent-off sale at Guitar Center, and regard it as a keeper. I think a case or bag of some sort should have been included at that price; none was.

  • Takamine EG630S Parlor - Unique

    As reviewed by Richard Jordan on 3/4/2013

    I'm four days into playing the Takamine EG630S. My fondness for it is growing. The instrument is light weight. It seems delicate by comparison to my full body acoustic guitar. Both the wood and detailing features are great. String action is fine for me but a more experienced player would probably want it to be a bit closer to the frets. Note: the pics of the guitar don't include the strap buttons. I was pleased to find that I didn't need to have that work done. Usually, I play with a light pick. That does not work on the EG630S. Finger playing brings out the best of the guitar's sound. If you must use a pick, make it a stiff grade. The neck is rounded, but I think it is proportioned fairly well for just about anyone's hands, right up to the 14th fret. I would describe the sound of the EG630S as bright with a short sustain length. Plugged in, the EG630S maintains the true acoustic characteristics. Very nice for solos/leads. The tone quality reminds me of Willie Nelson's venerable guitar. Unplugged, I find it great as my accompanying instrument because it doesn't over power my voice which helps me stay in pitch. The "New Yorker" is not a beginner?s guitar but, if you have experience, play with others or perform, you will probably like this instrument.
