After an exhaustive search for the best dreadnought guitar I could find in the $200-$300 range, I finally settled on the Takamine G340SC and I am thrilled with my decision. If you like a bit of a flashy look, this guitar has it: gold chrome tuners, abalone inlays and a cutaway body. Howeveer, the key is the playability and tone. The action is low allowing for easy play all the way up the neck, and the cutaway lets you reach those high notes. The sound is balanced with nice highs and lows, and a really strong midrange. I've tried it for blues, ballads and hard rockin' tunes and it does well on all whether picked or strummed. I'm not going to tell you that it is as good as a $3,000 Martin or Taylor, but I will say that it sounds, looks and feels as good as anything 2 to 3 times the price that I've tried. I highly recommend this guitar for anyone from beginners to active musicians. The guitar is sweet and the price is right!

My first Tak G340SC had a terrible buzz. The pros looked at it and suggested a replacement under warranty, which GC did very quickly. The second one had the same problem. This time, the in house pros did a fret level and setup. Still have the same problem. Its like when a note is in sustain, it causes the saddle to buzz. Its a beautiful guitar but ultimately unplayable for this reason. I'll probably return it and get something else.

Perfect!

By Scott Sampley

from Omaha, NE

My first GC purchase was a Seagul S6, love it and still have it, but it has som pretty low frets and isn't the easiest instrument to play. I read a lot of reviews and settled on the Tak G340SC and all can say is WOW. This has a brighter sound than the Seagul, undoubtedly because of the differend woods in the tops, spruce vs. cedar. The Seagul has a warmer sound and the Tak is brighter. I wasn't sure I liked the difference at first but now I'm in love with it. The only issue I had with this guitar was with the strings it ships with, D darrio coated, which makes this guitar sound "tinny". I took them off and replacws them with some regular, uncoated strings from the same brand and now it sounds incredible. What else can I say, outstanding finish, good tuners and phenomenal sound, mine even had a good action out of the box. Thanks Guitar Center and Takamine for supplying so much Guitar for such a reasonable price.

Great Guitar

By J.B.

from Dutton, Alabama

I bought my GS340SC about a year and a half ago. I am thoroughly enjoying it. I visited several music stores and played various guitars. Some of them were in my price range and some way above it. Of all the guitars I played (including Taylor, Epiphone, Ibanez, etc. at Guitar Center), the Takamines were always in tune. They always sounded good. That, along with the playability, the tone, and the unbelievable price, sold me on this guitar. It played as good or better than most of the more expensive guitars I checked out. I play it almost every day, and it is always in tune. It still has the same set of D'Addario strings that it came with. I keep waiting for them to wear out or start sounding bad, but they continue to sound great. I know its not a Taylor or a Martin, but for the money, I don't believe you could buy a better guitar. I'd recommend it to anyone.

G340SC Dreadnot

By Jim

from Cotati, Ca

If you are a serious player, then after a professional "tune up", meaning you get the neck properly aligned via the tension adjustment, and lower the strings to the proper height above the frets, and replace the plastic junk bridge with a real one (made from bone), that follows the head's contour, and file down the nut's depth, then it plays pretty good for what it is. If you stay with the playing potential of this guitar, and not get into really heavy strokes, then the instrument does perform really well. Beyond that, the first few strings will resonate a bit, it is a bit subtle, but it is there. It seems to hold a tune very well, albeit a tiny bit loose, but still a great instrument for the price - point.

great sounding guitar

By Jacob Kinsey

from Fort Mill South Carolina

I love this guitar and i play it usually 2 or more hours a day. it has a very nice rich and complex sound. the tuners that it come with are very nice, it stays in tune for weeks. i have a few problems with it though, the glossy neck is kind of sticky, compared to a satin finish neck. and the guitar i got had some fret buzzing on the first 4 frets, however i had the neck adjusted at Guitar Center and i no longer have this problem. over all this is a fantastic guitar and i will enjoy playing it for years to come.

Best Value Out There!

By Mike

from Jacksonville, FL

I looked for over 2 weeks by driving all over town, and tried all makes and models but as a novice, I really had a hard tme spending a ton of cash for my guitar upgrade. No matter what I tried, nothing really felt right. This G340SC sounds, looks and feels like the much more expensive guitars I played. The action was perfect out of the box and it SOUNDS AMAZING. From all my test drives If you are shopping, I did notice that the action is higher on the EG340SC vs this G340SC...This non electric guitar is very easy to play. My guitar did come with a broken tuner, but one email to Takamine and they're sending me a new one...no questions asked. So customer service is terrific. I still give it 5 stars...very happy

Absolutely Beautiful

By aznguitarist

from Franklin, Wi

I love this guitar. This is my 6th guitar, my 4th acoustic. It has beautiful tone, the action is great from the factory, and it just looks beautiful. No dead spots on the neck, this guitar is intense. The quality and sound of this thing rivals guitars that are twice the price of this Takamine. Don't even consider any other guitars. I know everybody thinks their guitar is the greatest and talks it up but this is the real deal. Trust me, you won't be dissapointed.

Great guitar

By Mike

from San Antonio, TX

Bought this one 3 months ago and it is awesome! It has a bright, rich tone and great resonance. It is absolutely worth every dime. Great for bluegrass, rock, folk, country, and blues.

GREAT!

By Mike

from San Antonio

I am a beginner and was looking for something I could start with, that wouldn't break the bank, but would still give me a great sound that would allow me to have fun playing. This guitar is a perfect fit for that. It is extremely affordable, has a great sound, looks good, and is easy to play. I am really enjoying it, and I get compliments on it all the time.
