The dreadnought body style of the Takamine G511SS acoustic guitar was created in the 1920's to meet the demand for a louder, more powerful-sounding guitar. It's been one of the most popular and widely recognized acoustic guitar shapes ever since because the dreadnought's broad top and deep body create a large resonant chamber that emphasizes bass response and provides a great deal of volume. This dreadnought features a solid cedar top giving a mellower tone, ideal for intimate settings or mellow classical movements. With a strong fingerstyle tone, cedar offers sustain, clarity, and a tight low end with a strong, woody sound. The solid sapele back and sapele sides add bright snap to the acoustic guitar, without sacrificing the balanced tone overall. While it is a heavier wood, it is also harder and more stable, ensuring that the acoustic guitar is strong in construction.
The rosewood bridge and fingerboard add lasting sustain, the mahogany neck adds a crisp tone, and the chrome tuners keep the Takamine G511SS guitar in precise tune. Dressed in a smooth satin finish, and featuring a luxurious herringbone rosette, this Takamine acoustic guitar sounds great and looks gorgeous, a tribute to craftsmanship that is undeniably Takamine.

I could go on and on about the guitar and how good it sounds... and not just for the money. When I recorded with it just through a SM57 is when I realized just how good it sounded... big, fat sound, nice action (had it worked on a little) and great neck. I highly recommend this Guitar at any price :)
I bought this guitar about a 2 years ago. As soon as i picked it us and until this day I have been impressed at how good it sounds for a cheaper guitar. This guitar has a beautiful neck with great action and great tone! It also is pretty loud. I have played this guitar down on the st. louis loop people can here it from far away. There is only a couple downfalls to this guitar. One is that it is does not have a pick up, but you could buy an acoustic bar pickup and it would work great. Also since this guitar is unglossed it will pickup some dings and scratches more than guitars that are glossed. It did not bother me though because a couple battle scars on a guitar just builds character. But all in all it is a wonderful guitar i would recommend it for anyone who is looking for a guitar in this price range!
