Bought my EG544sc Koa about a month ago and do consider it a good buy for the buck. And as several have noted it is a beautiful instrument, the Koa wood and full body binding compliments it's overall appearance quite well. Like almost any guitar hanging on the local music stores rack, though they be the same model, you really have to examine and play each one to determine which is best for you, no two are identical. There were two when I bought mine and the other had sloppy glue work visible on the bridge as well as on the internal bracing in the soundhole, action was real high, actually I couldn't believe Guitar Center accepted it for in store stock, much less putting it on display. As an acoustic guitar I can't rate it real high, it lacks the warmth one might expect from a cedar top and the tone is a bit erratic and undefined. But plugged into my PA or amp it definately comes to life, afterall a decent AE in the $500.00 range is what I was looking for, when I need great acoustic quality I'll simply grab my Martin. A guitar is like any other tool one chooses for a job, you have to ask yourself what application you are intending to use it for. If your looking for a fair deal on an very attractive AE for plugging into the mix this would definately be a good consideration. But if you have expectations for a great sounding acoustic you may be disappointed. The neck is narrow, almost like an electric, comfortable and easy to navigate. The tuner works okay but you'll find yourself fine tuning a bit despite what the tuner may be telling you, well if you truly have an ear for pitch. It's a very light guitar and seems well suited for the stage and long practice sessions, I give it a solid 4.5 down the board.

our church bought this guitar a couple years back but i dont know what they were thinking when they bought it!!! the sound that you get from this guitar is trashy.... the reason i dont give it a 1 is because if u have it connected it to an ok amp, the sound changes to a warmer sound.... still not a great choice for an acoustic

Takamine Koa A/E

By Mister Beagle

from Va Beach, VA

Comments about Takamine EG544SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar for 500$, but this guitar is wonderful. The cutaway has a comfortable angle for the higher frets. The projection is very good even with the action low, and there is absolutely no fret buzz. The tone is good, it could be a bit warmer, but still tasty. Hooked up to an amp, it sounds very clear and noticible. I could've payed twice as much for this guitar for it's value.

Competes with much higher end guitars

By Steve

from Nicholasville, KY

Comments about Takamine EG544SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Hands down, this guitar sounded far better than several higher end guitars. I had been looking for a long time and even considered others until I put this one in my hands. I am exstatic every time I pick it up. Even my friends who play Martin and Taylor guitars love this one. But hey, did I mention that it looks as awesome as it sounds??? Unplugged t is bright and resonate. Plugged, this guitar comes alive and rings like a bell! You gotta' try thi one!

Great Guitar

By Josh

from Dayton, OH

Comments about Takamine EG544SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I was looking for a replacement guitar and was looking at a thousand dollar Breedlove when this guitar caught my eye from the corner of the room. After picking it up and playing it I just couldn't resist it! Such amazing sound for such a good price. Great electronics, beautiful look, and great play. Simply Irresistible.

Excellent Guitar

By Brian

from Illinois

Comments about Takamine EG544SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is an excellent guitar, and i really lucked out with it, i knew practically nothing about guitars when i originally purchased it, and looking back on my naivety i wouldn't have bought anything else even with double the budget, this guitar is simply amazing and has been my best friend of the past few years, and im thinking about buying a brother for it soon. Takamine is the way to go.

Outstanding guitar!!!

By Ronnie "D\

from Raceland, Ky

Comments about Takamine EG544SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The Takamine EG544SC is just awesome... The cedar top and Koa back and sides make this one of the most beautiful guitars I have seen. The wood on mine is very light and the wood grain really stands out. The wood sings like the guitar itself. It plays like a dream and the sound is especially sweet through an amp. Great guitar, great price...Buy it!

GREAT DEAL...GREAT SOUND!!

By John

from KS

Comments about Takamine EG544SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have paid more for less quality. I spent about 2 hrs looking at several accoustic guitars. From Martins to Breedloves. This one sounded and played as good or better than the high dollar competitors. No lookin back. One hell of a guitar!

EG544SC

By Brandon

from Davidsonville, MD

Comments about Takamine EG544SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I picked up this guitar after looking around for quite a while. I was just looking for an upgrade from my last guitar and while taking a look at some other models this one caught my attention and never let go. Not only is it a visually stunning guitar but its got a great tone with the KOA wood. The on-board tuner is also great even though i hardly ever need it.

As pretty to look at as it is to play

By Steve

from Nicholasville, KY

Comments about Takamine EG544SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought my EG544SC about a month ago after a long search. For an acoustic, it has an amazingly fast neck and light action. And the deep cutaway makes it easy to access all of the frets. It is certainly a great guitar for the electric player who wants to transition to acoustic. I was surprised to know that it sounds as good unplugged as it does hooked up to an amp. The filtering for hum in the TK40 electronics is a great "fine tune" when experience feedback and works quite well with the 3 band EQ. My favorite part of the TK40 is the mid contouring because I switch amps between practice and playing out. BUT...you have to see this one to fully appreciate it. The koa back and sides along with the cedar top produce a beautiful and unique tone...perfect for the finger-picker.

Amazing

By Reuben

from Lewisville,Texas

Comments about Takamine EG544SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is a amazing, if I were to give it a name I would name it terry for terrific. It has never given me a problem with its sound and stuff. Only thing is that the quarter inch plug in the side tends to get lose and during live performances the sound mighty go on and off. The best solution for that is to put your cable around the strip into the input. Other than that, it is a excellent instrument.
