Overview

The Takamine GS430S G NEX is an acoustic guitar that represents a truly outstanding value. The GS430S Takamine guitar has a solid cedar top and nato back and sides for rich and sweet tone.

Great guitar, great price

By Bryan

from Des Moines, Ia

Comments about Takamine GS430S G NEX Acoustic Guitar:

This is an excellent guitar for the price. The tone is amazing with minimal fretbuzz. Great lows, mids and highs. It will outplay some higher priced guitars from Taylor and Martin. For a first guitar or even for experienced players you can't go wrong with the GS430S!

Lovely Guitar w/Slight Nuances

By John Gore

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about Takamine GS430S G NEX Acoustic Guitar:

I have owned this guitar for 6 months. I have strung it with both Elixirs and Martins and either way, the sound is very rich. The tones are almost piano-like. It is very easy to string because of the bridge design, it also tunes easily and stays in tune. Now...the nuances: For me, I found the string tension a little tight even with light 11s. And the neck is slightly narrower and thinner than what you'd find on similar martin/taylors making it more suitable for smaller hands, bar chords, and classical playing style. Big hands with wrap around playing style...forget it! If you fall somewhere in between, I think it's worth the slight extra effort because of the sound quality and the price.

Amazing entry level priced acoustic blues guitar

By Randy

from Bakersfield Ca.

Comments about Takamine GS430S G NEX Acoustic Guitar:

I could not believe the tone and playability of this guitar that sells for such a reasonable price. I own several acoustic guitars that fall into the "Folk" and "Blues" catagory including a turn of the century Lyon & Healey Parlor and a Gibson J45 both costing big bucks. While dreaming about a Martin OOO Eric Clapton Signature model I happened on this Takamine at one tenth the price and 98% of the tone. Excellent playability and truely great tone and sound seperation. Very worth your consideration if the blues or any acoustic music is what you are into!

Great guitar

By Evan R.

from King of Prussia, Pennsylvania

Comments about Takamine GS430S G NEX Acoustic Guitar:

Out of all of my guitars, this is my favorite right now. The cedar top gives a very warm tone and it came with an overall great set up. I like how the bridge is designed without any pins and the tuners are also very nice. I was surprised and very pleased with the high volume. Personally, I'm not worried about the lack of pickguard. I think it looks better without one. I also think it looks pretty cool without inlays on the fretboard. It was an overall great buy and this first Takamine of mine will definitely not be my last.

Takimien GS430

By Connor

from Voorhees, NJ

Comments about Takamine GS430S G NEX Acoustic Guitar:

The Takamine GS430 is deifnately a great deal for a guitar. It has a solid cedar top, whick produces a very rich, full sound. The action came extremelly low from the factory, so no set up was required. My only complaint is that the lack of a pickgaurd and the unpainted solid cedar top makes this guitar very prone to scratches. Other than that, you can't go wrong with this guitar.

Great Guitar for a Great Deal

By Joel

from Boardman, Ohio

Comments about Takamine GS430S G NEX Acoustic Guitar:

I have had this guitar for around 6 months and i couldn't be happier. It is a great sounding guitar for an even better price, and its narrow neck works great for my small hands.The only set back is that it scratches easily, but other than that this guitar is flawless.

Amazing guitar!!

By Adam N.

from Ivyland, PA

Comments about Takamine GS430S G NEX Acoustic Guitar:

I got this guitar a few days ago, and I LOVE it. It's such an amazing guitar. One of the first things I noticed upon picking it up for the first time and playing it, is that its a lot shorter and more compact than a normal full size. However, thats a good thing. I like the size so much better. I can hold bar chords is so much easier now. I could go on and on about it, but I'll just say it is amazing. Definitely buy.

Great Price

By Lynn

from Albuquerque

Comments about Takamine GS430S G NEX Acoustic Guitar:

After trying out quite a few guitars, going back and forth and trying them again, I settled between two Takamines. Both sounded great. I settled on this one. Regardless of price, this one sounded best to me. The neck is comfortable, and I just can't get over the rich bass.

excellent purchase

By bz

from chicago, illinois

Comments about Takamine GS430S G NEX Acoustic Guitar:

first: what this guitar is NOT. it is NOT a high end taylor or martin. doesn't have the fit finish sound or action of a "working man's" instrument. i wouldn't expect it to. what it IS: is a great value, an incredible neck with amazing action, a very very good sound and good fit and finish. it certainly should be considered along side entry level martins and taylors. i bought one for camping/sailing. i love it.
