Overview

The Takamine EG440C NEX is an exceptionally good value. Made to strict specifications, the acoustic guitar features a spruce top and mahogany back and sides. A single cutaway offers easy access to the top frets. It includes the TP4T, an easy-to-use preamp with a 3-band graphic EQ and built-in tuner. A rosewood fingerboard with abalone dot inlays and an abalone rosette combined with gold tuners make this guitar look as good as it sounds.

Sounds great tuner needs callback

By 

from Windham NH

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Finding a guitar is hard to do. You have try 11-12 to find the sound that you really like, that fits you in every way. I will admit the sound this guitar puts out is fantastic, its wholesome, and it plays like a dream. But, I was very displeased to find that the tuner on this guitar was faulty, and not just on my guitar, I took it to the store and tried within a mixer and straight into an amp, and both showed faultiness in the tuner, and the sound input. I suggest takamine does a callback, and gets that fixed because it was sad to let such a good guitar have such a simple problem.

good pick

By 

from mpls,mn

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

it came down to epiphone ej-200 ce, Ibanez AES10E, iabnez AEL20e. i wwnt and tried both of them out..didnt sounds as good as i thought but i saw this red baby in the corner of my eye. tried it sounded beautiful then tried it on the amp it was amazing :D. this guitars has a bright sound to it and the tuner really helps but mines was dead when i bought it. Also got a gig case for it i would recommend to get new strings for it because the one i had on it were kinda worn out, grab some new elixirs and let this baby sing :D ENJOY!

Takamine G Series EG4140C

By 

from Hobe Sound, FL

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The guitar was purchased for my son for a Christmas gift. He absolutely loves the guitar. He already had an electric guitar, but wanted an acoustic-electric. He has played the guitar everyday and was surprised to find there was a built-in tuner. The only negative thing is not being able to find a case at an affordable price. Thank you for making my son's Christmas an enjoyable one.

Well built - but sounds somewhat muted

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I did a side-by-side comparison of the EG440C (quilt maple red) vs. the EG440SC (solid spruce top). The SC had a much fuller, more resonant sound - a very clear difference for only a small amount more. The quilt maple of the EG440C is beautiful, and the guitar appears to be well built (as expected with Takamine), but I suggest paying the extra $$ on the EG440SC to get the solid spruce top. The SC is a fantastic guitar - especially considering the reasonable price.

Amazing guitar for a reasonable price

By 

from Lancaster, New York

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I looked at alot of other guitars, but this one was the only one that sounded beautiful both unplugged as well as plugged into an amp. I would definately recommend this guitar to anyone who is looking for an awsome guitar at a reasonable price. Another thing I liked was that it's a smaller guitar, and it's easy to play. I'm happy that I purchased this guitar and I know it will last me a long time :)

Blown away

By 

from Grand Rapids

Comments about Takamine G Series EG440C NEX Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've been searching for MONTHS and when it came down to the day when i was going to buy i went in thinking i would come out with a Ibeaz (which are amazing!!) but when i saw this guitar i was sooo impressed. And when i herd it i knew this was the one. I can say right now i couldn't be happier!! + it has a great tuner on it with a GREAT pickup so that diffidently adds onto it's already impressive material. So if your not sure between this one and any other acoustic-electric guitar (or just looking for one) this is most diffidently a good one to go with.
