I bought this guitar about six months ago and play it every day. It has great tone and an amazingly comfortable feel to it.The built in tuner is easy to use and is much more convinient than having to hunt around the house for a separate unit. It has a great sound as is or plugged into an amp.

I purchased a takamine G series as my first guitar. After being told by the salesman that its sound is amazing and a very good investment. I went to my first guitar lesson. My teacher then told me that I made a bad purchase. He said that the sound was horrible. I didn't really pay much attention to it, but the more I played with other people and heard other guitars, it was more than evident that the muffled noise coming from my Takamine was severely sub par. Everyone has told me to sell it and buy something else. I don't know if I just happened upon a lemon or if this peticular type of guitar is poorly made. If you are a first time purchaser, take someone you trust with you to test the guitar.

Great guitar

By DiveRightIn63

from Illinois

Comments about Takamine EG540C NEX Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Great sounding guitar, very comfortable to use... the on board tuner is convenient as well as active. Sounds good when plugged into an amp as well, and the EQ adjustment settings are a great plus. Definitely recommend this guitar.

My first takamine

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Takamine EG540C NEX Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The blue eg540 is my first takamine. Except for the intonation in the low E and the B strings being a little off, it's not really that bad. I had the nut worked on. It helped. It does help the sound if it's plugged in. It was smaller than the one I play at church. An ef341, that's nearly 25 years old. It has the same intonation problem, but it's not bad either. My eg540 doesn't have as loud a sound as the ef341, but for the money, you can't beat them.

Fine Axe

By Dustbuster

from Salem, OR

Comments about Takamine EG540C NEX Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The EG540C comes with everything you would expect from a Takamine... for the money. The sound is decent, a bit tinny at times. The looks and feel of the guitar are outstanding. The neck is quite small, which can be a good thing, but the string spacing seems a little tight. The preamp and onboard tuner are superb. I am highly satisfied with my purchase, because of what I got for the money. If you are more interested in tone, I would recommend searching for something in the thousand dollar price range. Otherwise, I would say go for it.

from Chesterfield, MO

Comments about Takamine EG540C NEX Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

this was my first acoustic and ive been playing it for about a year. i always go on about how much i hate it and want a new one, but this baby is really great. i do not love Takamine, i do not endorse them or recomend them, but here they made a solid guitar and it stands up to all of my punishment. Good job Takamine, this time

One small problem

By Herman the german

from Hutchinson, MN

Comments about Takamine EG540C NEX Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I'm writing this for others who may also have this problem. The Guitar had been wonderful for the first three months, then developed a terrible buzz from the bridge area. Investigation revealed that the brass nuts securing the bridge to the top were loose. they could not be tightened sufficiently as they were. I've added a flat and lock washer, and that seem's to have taken care of the problem, but time will tell. Otherwise, very satisified with this product.

PLUG IT IN

By Deadalast

from Daytona Beach

Comments about Takamine EG540C NEX Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Yes, this type of guitar is designed to plug in 100% of the time, but plug it in to a EON G2, and you will be amazed at the quality tone. I do not even need to use the notch filter, because I have had zero feedback.

Bang for your Buck!

By Koko

from Carbon County, PA

Comments about Takamine EG540C NEX Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Bought this guitar online and was blown away by not only the looks but by the playability. I immediately changed the strings. (though factory strings still sounded good)It sounds unbelieveable with Elixer Polyweb lights on it.Love the onboard tuner-works well. Only problem I had was that it doesn't sound totally full unplugged but for me it is not a problem because I play 98% plugged in anyway (sounds great plugged in.) The other bummer is that there is only one know for a strap but thats a .99 cent thing. Got lots of compliments on stage about the plugged in sound and finish from other musicians and crowds.

Takamine EG540C Nex Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guit

By Mack17

from B2, Illinois

Comments about Takamine EG540C NEX Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is a great value for its quality and features. With a built-in tuner, when your in a loud room or you dont have the best ear for tuning, the built in tuner will do it for you. The tuning machines sometimes come a little lose. But all you have to do is make them a little tigther. Also sometimes when you play a note on the 12th fret or above you may here a buzzing noise. If so, go to your nearest repair shop and they will repair it for you. Not expensive and not a big problem. Great for any time of music, Country, Punk, Rock, Classical and whatever other genre you can think of. This guitar can be twangy when you plug it in to an amp. But all you have to do is on the amp and guitar. Just turn up the bass to get rid of the twangy sound and then you'll have one great acoustic-electric guitar. Overall great sounding guitar and comes at a great value. I personally don't regret buying this guitar.
