    Comments about Takamine G Series GD30CE-12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've used the guitar for recording, both mic'd and using the internal electronics, and they both sound very good. The guitar is set up well and the action is quite good for an acoustic 12-string. And the guitar has stayed closely in tune even in the changing weather we have had since I bought it.

      Comments about Takamine G Series GD30CE-12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Well I purchased the guitar to play sierreño style music but out the box the action was extremely high and was very hard to play. I've used other 12 strings with great low action for example Martin 12 strings are nicely setup. Overall the guitar produces a nice warm rich sound and the pick up system is amazing when plugged in. If you're looking for a 12 string to shred in this is not the one but open chords sound great.

        Comments about Takamine G Series GD30CE-12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        The guitar is great - I have been extremely happy with it. The action is great and I love the sound. It's my first 12-string and I've been having a blast playing songs I've known for years and deciding whether they sound better with a 6 or a 12.
