Overview

The G Series EG455SC NEX Quilted Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a perfect example of Takamine craftmanship. Compact size, exotic woods, sweet tone, amazing playability and state of the art electronics all come together in this winning Takamine G Series guitar.

Just on looks alone you will want to spend hours playing this guitar. The glossy walnut burst finish accentuates the stunning depth of figure on the quilt maple back and sides for a captivating visual presentation.

Sonically, the broad tonal range of the solid spruce top will cover you with the harmonic richness you need when performing solo and the power and clarity to cut through the mix of a full band situation.

And of course as with all Takamine guitars, you have one of the finest performance pickup and preamp system in the industry, with three bands of graphic EQ and a built in digital tuner to keep your intonation dialed in perfectly.

Awesome Guitar!!

By joe flippo

Comments about Takamine G Series EG455SC NEX Quilted Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I had been looking for a new guitar, really liked the idea of a Martin or a Taylor but in my price range i didnt want a high pressure laminate on my guitar! I was at a local guitar shop and they were a Takamine dealer i really liked how they played, i looked online at some of the modes and the EG 455SC caught my eye! With a solid spruce top and the maple back and sides I really liked that! it has a crisp sound, lots of high end with the maple, sounds like some taylors i liked! For the money you cant beat this guiar! Good looks but more than that is it sounds Awesome!

Beautiful Guitar

By Timothy Chiu

from Boston, MA

Comments about Takamine G Series EG455SC NEX Quilted Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is worth every penny! The design is absolutely stunning to the eye. When I was browsing at my local Guitar Center, I was hoping to get a Taylor. However the good high end models like the 700 and 800 series would break my bank. I asked my sales representative and he suggested that I try out this Takamine. The tone was what I'd expect from a Taylor and for a good price too! When I bought this guitar, there were a few issues with the neck that I didn't notice at first. It was only a manufacturing defect and not a design flaw. Besides that, it was very hard for me to not fall in love with this guitar.

Absolutely Amazing!

By Zach Bayer

from Houston TX

Comments about Takamine G Series EG455SC NEX Quilted Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I just purchased this guitar from GC yesterday and have yet to set it down. I originally went in looking at the Yamaha apx500ii because it was very affordable and sounded better than the price tag that was on it. However I was showed another Yamaha dreadnought that sounded great too. Then on the third day I went in to play I found this Takamine and couldn't put it down. The sound is amazing and smooth and the action is SPOT ON! Easily comparable to some of the Taylor's and Martin's I played. I also would give it 5 stars on presentation alone, its beautiful. The electronics are also great. The tuner is awesome although the only time I had to use it is when I took it out of the box. It has stayed in perfect tune ever since. I recommend this guitar 110%. You get so much more than the price you pay for it!
