I've been playing classical guitar for about 2 years. I own a $2,000 guitar, which was my first purchase. I decided to buy the Takamine as a 2nd guitar. The Takamine compares very well to the more expensive model. It has good tone and the workmanship is flawless. I think if you want a good student model guitar and don't want to spend 3 or 4 thousand dollars then this is a very good choice. The electronics are nice to have but I really don't use them as I play at home and the guitar projects nicely. It does have an internal tuner which I find very useful. The guitar is a bit heavy but that's probably due to the electronics. I play this guitar every day and I would highly recommend it.
I purchased this guitar in May 2011, it has the CTP2 electronics which sounds really great. I got this guitar to begin learning Classical Guitar. This model has a 2" nut and gives the spacing needed for finger style playing. Note, if your hands are small like mine it will take time to develop the finger stretch necessary to some of the chords at the top of the next. The sides are laminated Rosewood but the back is solid Rosewood and the top is solid Ceadar. Both of these tone woods really give this guitar a warm rich sound with a lot of sustain. I felt that this guitar has the most features to offer for its price point. Takamine's craftmanship is excellent, no additional setup was required with unsurpassed electronics.
