I had been looking at Takamine, Taylor, Martin, Seagull, and a few others guitar brands. This one caught my eye right off the bat with its beautiful look. I knew that Takamines sound great live but most didn't achieve my standards when i play them unplugged... until I played the EG463SC. Beautiful all around look and sound and of course shines through an amp for the live shows. It has outstanding electronics including a tuner!! I recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a great sounding decent priced guitar.
Came in looking for affordable solid top acoustic electric. Tried out some nice Fenders, couple of low end Taylors and Martins. Each had nice features but lacked in certain others (sealed tuners, lousy action, unbalanced sound for my style) This Tak truly has it all. Was the last guitar I tried out and had to have it, bought it. Well balanced tone, sealed tuners, very easy to tune, smooth action and is just drop dead gorgeous with abalone inlay work. Just an incredible guitar for an incredible price, comparable to guitars costing hundreds more. Best acoustic electric I have ever played for the money, get it you can't go wrong!
I just bought this guitar today, and when I first picked it up I loved it. It has a great feel, great sound, and it's a beautiful guitar. It was a little out of my price range, but it was worth every penny. I'd recommend this guitar to anyone.
I went in looking for an $800 guitar that played easily, looked good, and sounded great. Instead, I walked out with this beauty for $300 less. I tried almost every guitar in the store including Martins, Taylors, Epiphone, and several others. Then I picked this one up, and was first totally impressed with the looks. Then I played it, and was blown away with how easy it was to play, and how great it sounded. I really tried to beat this guitar, even with another Takamine that cost more, and just couldn't do it. Everytime I look at this guitar, I'm thrilled with how great it looks, and how much I'm enjoying it. WOW.....get one, you'll not be sorry.
I walked in looking for a classical guitar earlier tonight - dead set on a classical acoustic/electric. In fact, I swore that "heck" would freeze over before I ever played another steel string. I have grown to love the rich "boom" you can get from a classical guitar and as a rule, steel strings are too tinny and have too much of a high end for my purposes. At a friend's insistence, I reluctantly picked this guitar up to give it a try. I was struck by its beauty immediately, but given my classical bias I was sure that it wasn't what I was looking for. I started checking the tuning and was surprised by the clear and very full tone that it gave me even then. I struck a couple chords and landed on an A minor and knew that this was the one I wanted. It literally converted me on the spot! No one was as shocked as I was... the classical that I've got is going to be very, very jealous!
I am just getting into acoustic rock and own some expensive guitars, my favorite a 57 Historic RI so I like/expect good quality from my instruments. Being this was to be my first acoustic I was hesitant to drop a large some of cash not knowing if it was something I would enjoy in the end. So I started looking at the epiphone hummingbird (I would love to have the real deal.) Well while I was giving the epi a go over I saw this Takamine hanging there and was amazed at how well it looked. So I had to give it closer look see. WOW! The sound was MUCH better. I even tried some of the more expensive Takamines and this puppy stayed right there. The sound is great, the neck is great, action low and the tuners very precise. The back of the guitar is truly a work of art. I ended up taking this bad boy home and have been impressed every time I have picked it up. The tone is amazing. Did I mention the back was beautiful?
I'm a beginner and just recently decided to learn to play. As a newbie, I didn't know much about guitars so I read and studied for weeks. I didn't care to buy something I would want to replace in 6 months, but I also had to live within a budget. I gave serious thought to the Ibanez, Yamaha, and Seagulls that were in my price range. However, I hadn't paid much attention to the Taks. I was about to pull the trigger on a Yamaha when the sales guy went to the back and returned with this guitar. When I picked it up, the Takamine just felt right. It's not to big or too heavy and is easy to play. It sounds absolutely great unplugged, and really shines when played through an amp. You can't believe the beauty of this guitar until you hold it. The pictures can't begin to do it justice. The combination of the quilted maple and rosewood on the back is awesome. I think I found exactly the right guitar for me. I can't imagine that I would need anything more for many years to come.
I'm really happy with this guitar. Plays great, sounds great and looks great. Stays in tune too!
I went in the store shopping for PA gear and just went in the guitar room to see what was there and picked this guitar up and fell in love. I couldn't believe the high quality at such a reasonable price. It literally sounds as good as the Martins and Taylors at like a third of the price! I've played it practically every day since I've had it. Trust me, it plays and sounds as good as it looks and I've not found anything that I'm disappointed with. Highly recommend!!!
this guitar is nice. it is middle range price and that is exactly how it sounds. its not as nice as a gibson or a taylor, but it definatly plays well. the strings are a little high above the neck so it might need adjusting. the stock strings arent the best so i would recommend buying warmer strings for it. it plays very well our of amps and that is was makes it special. its a good guitar and i would recommend it to someone with 2-4 years experience.
I bought this model guitar the first year it was produced. There were no reviews on it, so I really took a chance. I had never bought one in that price range, however I felt confident in the Takamine name. It has been years later and I still love this guitar. It has so much character and the design features really make it one of a kind. I haven't seen another guitar like this one and it makes me feel proud to own it. Thank you Takamine and Guitar Center!
