Amazing, amazing, amazing tone!! I bought this guitar several years ago while playing in an acoustic band. I'm now playing classic rock and I still prefer to play this Tak than my electric. It sounds amazing, plugged in or mic'd. In fact, this guitar is the focal point of the band, not the lead guitarist's Strat and Marshall full stack. The electronics produce rich, bright rhythms that sing!!! Stays in tune constantly, feels great to play, and looks great on stage. After many years and many other guitar purchases(Schecter S-1 Elite, Les Paul Standard, Taylor 455 CE 12-string), this Takamine is still the first one I grab when I come home.

I have been playing my Tak EF341SC for about 7 years. It has been my main live acoustic and it thrives in that situation. Excellent pickup and a very handy onboard tuner. It looks good on stage and stays in tune. Tonally it is a nice guitar, but for recording - fingerstyle playing - yeah - not ideal. But it was designed as a stage guitar and that is where it really shines.

Excellent Acoustic

By Scott

from Missouri

Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I played what seemed like every acoustic/electric guitar in the acoustic room and none of them measured up to this one. Amazing tone, built in tuner, fast neck, beautiful paint job, and terrific price. Who can argue with that?

A Must Have!

By thomas deaton

from Decatur, IL

Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have played low end guitars my whole life with no avail. I finally saved up enough money for a stellar guitar and chose this Takamine. Before deciding on this guitar, I played Martins and Taylors and was impressed but not sold. I ended up ordering this guitar without playing it (which is something most all guitar players would not recommend). I purchased it based on the reviews of how great it sounds and what famous people play it. I must say that what you read about this guitar is ALL true! It has surpassed my expectations...Guitar Center does not carry this guitar in most stores, but have no apprehension on buying this without playing it...5 Stars! The tuner on the electronics on this guitar are precise to the "t". Sounds unreal through my stage amp and the P.A. Do yourself a favor and buy this gem!

Never a better guitar

By JR

from Oregon

Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Yes a strong title. I've been gigging with this since 1999. I purchased it new in 1998. It's been with me ALL the way. I've never had to have it adjusted. Ever. I've dropped it face down at a party and had the strap fall off the end only to have it crash on my bike pedal. Chipped the finish. Oh well. It just KEEPS ON GOING. Don't fool yourself... once you get it, you know it's a keeper. Nice MELLOW tones, no harshness. Sometimes I can make the treble strings ring out, sounds like I have someone playing mandolin with me. Weird. Good.

A truly great guitar!

By Martin Dodd

from Charlton MA.

Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is my 2nd Takamine, I already own the equivelent 12 string. I love the feel of how well it plays, the sound, either plugged in or acoustic is as good as any much more expensive guitar! I have owned this for 2 weeks and already love it! After trying different makes of Acoustic/electric, I found this to be the best bang for my Buck! The finish is superb, the EQ/tuner are player friendly that can be customised for the sound you need.

30 Year Break from Guitar

By Charlie "T\

from Upstate New York

Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

After not having played for 30 plus years the EF341SC made my return to guitar easy and fun. This guitar is not only beautiful to look at but to listen to as well. Built in electronics allow a "two for one" situation when hooked up to your amp. Weather playing laid back and mellow or rocking it to the rafters this guitar makes it happen. A true value for the money. Keep it up Takamine!

i call her sleeping beauty.

By oase

from san francisco

Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar when i graduated from high school [7 years ago]. It has always sounded incredible, stays in tune like no other instrument i've ever played, and it's the only thing more beautiful onstage than yours truly. I've been thru the quietest of coffee shops and the rowdiest pirate bars, and this guitar always sounded incredible. Great for solo work or a full band.- I love this guitar.

Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've had my Tak for almost 7 years now. It is a faithful friend with sweet tone and powerful beauty... It's just fantastic. No wonder Springsteen loved it. You've gotta try this guitar. I'd like to up the score to 6 stars, please!

An amazing guitar

By Guitarist

from CA

Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I had been browsing the acustic section in the Guitar Center when I happen to pick up the Takamine EF341SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar. It played amaingly and produced an amazing tone. I unfortunatly did not get a chance to plug it in to an amp, but it did feel and sound as though it was amazingly underpriced.

A Great Buy For All Aplications

By Kyle Official

from Waco, TX

About Me Professional Musician

Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar over 7 years ago for a steal! Over the past 7 years this guitar has been my main touring acoustic. I've played bars, churches, school gyms, auditoriums and arenas.. and across the boad, this guitar holds its own ( I played a '76 Gibson Hummingbird, and various Martin guitars while in the studio). I play D'Addario Phosper Bronze 10s and go through a set of strings in about a week, but this guitar has a great high-end that keeps me sounding fresh. I have dropped the guitar on its face, on the headstock, and it still stayed solid. The only downside to this guitar is the stock electronics, but if you have a decent sound guy or a 5- band eq pedal (to scoop the low mids) it usually works out in your favor!

    Worth every penny!

    By Christopher

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've been playing a '79 mahogany Guild D25 since it was new, but needed something I could plug in. Wanted another dreadnought, but with cutaway, preferably black finish, and this guitar fit the bill. I'd heard good things about Takamines from people I respect. Was ready to travel 250 miles to try one out, but learned via online chat that the one I tried would not be the one I took home, and the store would charge extra to set it up, so no point in making the trip; I just ordered online. The guitar arrived on time as advertised in original shipping box. Intonation is fine at the 12th fret and upward, and it has an excellent, balanced voice, very comparable to the played-in Guild (considering the brand new strings) whether finger-style, picking, or strumming . Can't comment on the electronics because I haven't plugged it in yet- it's that nice just playing acoustic, not like other acoustic-electrics I've played that had no voice without the amp. Glad I chose this guitar.

        I'm a pro musician. 150 gigs a year. I love the action of this guitar and the sound plugged and unplugged. But- after 15 months of gigging several frets are toast already. Big divots and buzzes horribly. Ungiggable. Very disappointing. It's my #1 after my $2300 Taylor which sounds awful plugged in. They need harder frets to keep you happy here. Sad. Still recommend it but be aware.

        5 Star Guitar, 1 star Guitar Center

        from undisclosed

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Takamine EF341SC Legacy Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        First let me say I love Takamine guitars and this one sounds great! However, good ole Guitar Center strikes again. The guitar was shown on the website as "in stock, ready to ship". I knew I shouldn't deal with Guitar Center but it was the ONLY store that had this guitar. Took them 5 days to ship the guitar! When i finally got the email that the guitar had arrived at my local Guitar Center I went to pick it up. And boy was I disappointed. Both the case AND the guitar face/finish was scratched up and their were smudges and oils all over the guitar from people having played it. They couldn't even be bothered to clean the guitar up? Definitely my last ever business dealings with Guitar Center. My advice is to buy your instruments ANYWHERE other than Guitar Center.
