passeti's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Takamine EF407
This acoustisque electro guitar is a Japanese who has a good acoustiqe it apparently lacks a little low, it is very rich in medium and sound very briallant.
faith branch c perfect, the lack of bass this lightweight catches up right away.

USE

The neck is super enjoyable, it very easy to play.
the handle is a bit short but it is not drangeant.
it is a fund between the parlor and so small ooo which justifies the size of the handle and super grip.

SONORITS

I play a lot of jazz and world music. sound of this instrument is perfect for me, for a pump and a roll themes alone. for blues, picking it works really well too, MEMC rather done for this style l.
branch c super, I play a super roland ac 60 and has a hit.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I use it for a year and I find it really good.
good report qualitprix 850
I have myself Sparer against heart for godin multiac steel because it will be more convenient for me this year. but if I had more money I will keep.

Takamine EF407
For description, see other opinions, or website Takamine

Small precision anyway: It's not the massive Koa is the veneer. The explanation of Takamine: If the table was massive, unlike his would not have justified the price difference.

USE

The handle is very aréable to play, in my opinion.
Access to acute? Ben is an acoustic, there is no cutaway, but in general we do not play at the 17th fret on that kind of guitar!
Level ergonomics, I find it perfect. "00", so very small size. Top Notch

SOUNDS

1) The acoustic sound:

It is extremely powerful, it does not enomes low (not jumbo!) And treble are not very far ahead. However I found ue huge difference to the type of rope: Initially I had put Martin, it was normal what. After I tried Elixir acoustic "Phosphor Bronze". And it was still day and night! Yet I am not a maniac on the choice of my rope brands! Electrical, I take the cheaper. But there, phosphor bronze Elixir sound good, are shiny longer. I go to 12-56.
So to pick, its fairly wide range depending on the pick (like all guitars). One can easily make stuff arpege with a tab or a pick, or fingers. My in this style I prefer the pick or tab thumb. Otherwise in good blues roots with fingers, that's great too!

2) electro:
I will not dwell on the subject: If you want a REAL acoustic guitar, do not use a piezo pickup, even on Taylor! on the other hand on stage, troubleshoots ca, is fast to implement. That said, the sound, for a piezo is good, even very good. The preamp is excellent. But it's still piezo!
If you play a few musicians, try to pair it with another micro piezo a capacitor is that you put in front of the guitar is that you clip it on it (audio technica AT831b is awesome). You will have a REAL guitar sound. Now for rhythmic rock, or variety, piezo is fine.



NOTICE GLOBAL

I've had more than a year. I am extremely happy. I also have another Takamine EN20, a jumbo. Level: nothing to do. When recording, I often use the EN20 for rhythm. She has more "body". But the complete EF407 good.
Above all, on stage, it is not bulky, it is easy to play ...

Thank you Takamine.

To give you an idea, watch the DVD "rather Guitar" Maxime Leforetier. Michel Haumont play on this guitar.

tonioro's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Nice little versatile guitar"

Takamine EF407
Made in Japan
Rosewood fingerboard and bridge.
Table, koa back and sides
Handle 43 mm, rather thin with a slight radius
preamp with tuner

UTILIZATION

Personally, I chose this guitar for his parlor size and comfort of the handle: in any game really happening.
Good balance.
Mechanical quality: good level of agreement
I play little electro, but this guitar ... I plug in and it sounds, and even pretty good! Controls are effective, integrated tuner practice!

SOUNDS

I play, folk, blues and a little rock ... Koa gives her a little "muffled", but well balanced with personality ... The projection is not monstrous but we can really let go and scratch safe, no blur or saturation, so that overall it will!
I tried a little picking there with narrow neck and sounds "muffled", it is not necessarily obvious to play ... it is not his thing!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 months, and I had tried a lot of guitars (including Taylor, Gibson, normann), this "tak" definitely worth a visit!
I got mine used, it has some "pets", so I have not bought a fortune and this is the guitar that I carry around everywhere ... small size with its integrated tuner, not killing fingers, but a typical sound like and that can play everything!
What happiness!
