Overview

The pickup in the Takamine EG530SSC Acoustic Electric Cutaway Guitar is an integral part of the guitar's design. A solid spruce top and big dreadnought body pump out large-volume punchy rhythms while the cutaway lets leads rip right on up to the higher registers. A solid nato back adds projection while a built-in preamp translates all that tone into the electric realm. Abalone rosette, chrome hardware, and a gloss natural finish add visual elegance.

Features
  • Solid spruce top
  • Abalone rosette
  • Solid nato back
  • Built-in preamp
  • Gorgeous gloss natural finish

After playing my dad's worn out Hohner for a while, I decided I needed my own guitar. So I started saving up and looking around. I played around with a couple of Taylors way out of my price range, played some Martins. The Takamine EG530 caught my eye. Good tone, smooth neck, great price. I chose it over a slightly more expensive Martin because it had a good feel to it. Overall, great guitar, but it is a little bulky past the bridge. The electronics are splendid. This is a great guitar for those who want a quality guitar on a limited budget.

It's a good guitar, but what I haven't liked since I bought it was that the action is really high on mine and adjusting the truss rod won't really help it! It hasn't had a good feel for me, it seems hard to play. The tone is okay, but to me a regular acoustic has a warmer tone. This guitar seems to resonate too much, and doesn't capture the warm bass notes as well.

Objective opinion from owner

By Ersk

from Michigan

Comments about Takamine EG530SSC Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

For the price this is a killer guitar. I've owned mine for five years now an it plays beautifully. The tone is much brighter than the Martins I've played at the same price point whose tones tend to be a bit bassier. There's a buzz at both E strings on mine that won't seem to go away even after a pair of "pro" setups. But overall the tone is bright and balanced though it can get a little tinny with dead strings. This is my go to piece for practice and performance alike because I can't afford a higher end Taylor or Martin, but this guitar is better than the mid level and lower models of the more famed makers.

Great

Comments about Takamine EG530SSC Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

This is my first acoustic guitar, however this guitar was suggested by three of my friends. I have since played several other high dollar guitars and would not trade my 530. I will never sell this guitar!

Surprised!

By WhoAmI

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Takamine EG530SSC Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

Great guitar and excellent value. I own a 1999 Gibson J45 and this guitar isn't quite as sweet sounding as that but it comes close. I've owned over 50 guitars in my life and I was actually very surprised at how good this sounded. If you can get one of these for cheap, do it!

very average guitar

By Thor rough

from Heidelberg

Comments about Takamine EG530SSC Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

I own the twelve string version in Sapele and that is a great guitar. I found this guitar simply okay and who wants to spend good money on an average guitar? The Rogue guitars for half the price is equal in quality. I gueass alot of people. But not me, buy a parkwood or another cheap solid wood guitar.

Great all around

By Dr.RosenRosen

from West Chester, PA

Comments about Takamine EG530SSC Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

I have looked for a decent acoustic/electric for a while. This guitar was the best decision I could have made. Unplugged or plugged in, the sound is bold and the action makes playing easy! Definitely play the guitar before you buy it. I had played a couple that needed some tweaking to eliminate rattling. Beautiful guitar with beautiful sound and great action.

Great Play

By speargat

from Austin, TX

Comments about Takamine EG530SSC Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

I have been searching for an acoustic-electric for several months, and had played several both in stores and responding to ads. For the cost, this guitar is a pleasure to play with very good action, spot-on intonation, and a quick neck. I play a lot of Dave Matthews riffs, and this guitar made them easy to play. It doesn't quite project as much as other guitars unplugged, but hooked up to the PA it is hard to tell the difference between this and other more expensive guitars. For the money, I have no complaints about this guitar and would recommend it.

Great Guitar

By Paul-P4de5

from UK

Comments about Takamine EG530SSC Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

I have owned several acoustics over the last couple of years, but this is my last one as I have found my grail !!The sound is sublime, perfect mix of bass, mid and top end. The sustain is fantastic. Plugged in this sounds even better IMHO this is worth twice the purchase price and kicks a** on more expensive names

Awesome guitar

By church_head_2003

from Oklahoma

Comments about Takamine EG530SSC Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

This guitar is amazing. I got one a few years ago and it has been great. I have used it to lead praise for camps, revivals, church services and just in my youth group. It is a great sounding guitar. It's not a Taylor, but it definately gets the job done with class.
