The Takamine EG463SC G-series NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar combines quality and beauty in a signature Takamine hand-crafted body style. The guitar is built on the NEX/Grand Auditorium platform for a modern design—similar to the dreadnought in depth to ensure a great level of volume. The top has a pleasing, rounded profile that is narrow at the waist, yet broad behind the bridge creating a soundboard that offers balanced frequency response with deep bass, clear treble, and a sweet, round midrange that projects well.
This Takamine guitar starts with a solid spruce top for strong, continuous tone right out of the box. The back and sides are a 3-piece rosewood and quilted maple structure, providing well-rounded sustain. The tuning machines are gold with black buttons for precise tuning. The Takamine EG463SC also features state-of-the-art electronics in the TP4T preamp system. It includes 3-band graphic EQ and a tuner—a great addition for non-standard and open tunings. The Takamine EG463SC guitar has the feel of a small-bodied guitar, yet yields impressive performance—an excellent accompaniment for singer-songwriters, or finger-style players.
Built to Takamine designs in some of the most modern guitar shops in the world, G-series guitars are priced for every budget. The G-series guitar is every bit Takamine, from its acoustic performance to the latest in pickup and preamp design. These Takamine guitars are crafted from the finest handpicked tonewoods, hand-crafted by expert luthiers, all providing players with unmatched excellence and surprising affordability.

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!
the onboard electronics are outstanding
When I first got this guitar, I was a little disappointed. But after making a couple of adjustments to the neck, and making sure it was humidified, it is as good as any guitar I've played. Don't get me wrong...you can get a more expensive guitar that is better. But honestly, I don't have a lot of money for an acoustic. its easily superior to anything I've played in the price range.
I've only been playing guitar for about 6 months now and finally decided to invest in my own guitar after borrowing an Ovation from a buddy. I could not be happier with purchasing this guitar. Though I did not want to spend too much money on my first guitar, I figured I'd treat myself to a nice guitar to continue to motivate me to keep playing and keep learning. The sound is incredible, not to mention the aesthetically pleasing designs on the guitar. The built in tuner is fantastic and just love playing this guitar in general. I've tried others, but Takamine seems to be the best fit for me after playing a few of their models. Its a very bright sounding guitar, perfect for what I enjoy playing.
I had been lusting after a Taylor 214CE for months but just couldn't pull the trigger due to the price tag. I spotted this one at a local store, as it looked almost identical to the Taylor (minus the pick guard), and tried it out. I was sold almost immediately. Not only is this one of the most beautiful guitars I've ever seen it just plays and sounds wonderful. After alternating between both guitars for a while I realized I just liked the Tak better (and at half the price!!). It's kind of hard to explain but it just feels good. The tuners are tight and feel great, the action is about the same as my Strat, and the tone is just beautiful. I highly recommend to anyone. Also, this one has a built-in tuner which is SO convenient and is not available on the Taylor.
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 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!!!
I'm really happy with this guitar. Plays great, sounds great and looks great. Stays in tune too!
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'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 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?
