rikey's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" One of my favorite guitars ..."

Takamine EG260C
handle 21 frets with cutaway access to so acute is facilitated.
Micro Piezo takamine, with TP4 preamp. simple adjustment, bass, mid, high + volume. intuitive and easily found the sound you want by fiddling the amp. taken for the studio I double the piezo which goes through a DI with a microphone placed in front of the guitar instrument. the sound that it almost does not deserve to Equalization. This really is a great toy ...

I put a big nine, PCQ nothing is really perfect.


the handle is super nice, round with a good grip, fast, most excellent. My easel head literally exploded a few years ago, so I took the opportunity to replace the plastic frets (head and bridge), by small pieces of bone that my luthier prepare her little hands skilful.
the weight is perfect, not too heavy, not too light, I put a Straplock the heel of the neck and the guitar is a bit unbalanced, it has a tendency to bite the head very slightly, but nothing serious.

9 PCQ is always excellent ...


I use it every day, even if only 5 min and she really accepts all styles of games. gypsy jazz, pop, through picking, everything is really nickel. the only downside would be the presence of low, having a cut-off prevents them from really out. but trying several sets of strings you do get the sound you want and the strings that we like. in my case it is mounted in Argentina 11-46 (pr strings typical gypsy jazz) but this is the best I've found for the sound I like, they really accept all styles and are a good compromise quality / price but that's another discussion ....
the sound is excellent ... 9


it has been about 8 years it is mine, I had found a store of Cygnus or you can find anything, and I fell in love with her curves. I knew a little of the world takamine but on this one I was really amazed. all this time I tried other guitars, I bought other (tjs of Cygnus, PCQ give a second life is an instrument kiffant), but none in this range there is m ' gave much pleasure.
the price / quality ratio is excellent, and with experience YES I would do it without hesitation PCQ a choice like that Cygnus is not every day that falls on ...

Takamine EG260C
- In what country does she makes? (United States, Japan, Mexico, France ...)

- How many frets, what kind of micro as well as their configuration?
Then, 20 frets, the pickups do not know: p

- What are the rglages (Volume, Tone slecteur micro ...)?
We can rgrler volume gnral, and there is a low equalizer, medium and treble. It works with a battery! Personally, I go a bit sharp when I jous with an amp, the sound is much cleaner ...

- What type of race?
Channel plutt large, approaching the piphones acoustic. Ncessite time to adapt.


- The handle is it enjoyable?
Yes, it must be May sil ... APRS, the type of game is plutt rhythm (do not leave esprer solo too complicated too)

- Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?
Nothing wrong, the 20 freight is achievable without difficulty!

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
The form is gnrale plutt enjoyable (APRS is a matter of got ...). The weight, I do not know I always play sitting down.

- Gets it easy to sound good? ...
Nothing wrong on this, the acoustic sound is not bad, and an amp, I put forward just the treble and go!


- Appropriate are your style of music?
To play in keeping the rock / pop (typ Bowie), it is spot on!

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
The amp is a Hiwatt G100 112R, 100 Watts, and I play either with the clear sound of the amp or with a lightweight and a little cho trmolo I get with my pedals to Zoom G2 effects.

- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
The bass is the weak point of this little guitar ... nothing alarming, but they are too far forward (I got) by default. But it just might be my amp.


- How long have you use it?
6 days!

- What is the particular feature you like most?
CHAC easy all frets, nickel acoustic sound, and made a few simple effects.
- The least?
Sound a little too serious default on an amp.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Uh, tens, impossible to list them all.

- How do you report qualitprix?
For the moment nothing wrong, but good for this poitn it will take several months to see how this will age scratches! 3

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
For now, yes! (But it is really too tt to judge this)

-------------------------------------------------- -------------------------

APRS 2 years of use, the handle has worked and 11 freight is now unusable.
Okay, I'm not all the same but when dead hand.

Elwyn78's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Takamine EG260C
6-string guitar made in China.
Channel, mahogany back and sides, spruce top (not solid). (A score of 9 / 10)
Rosewood fingerboard and bridge.
Channel 20 Frets, Scale 648mm, D profile, 42mm at nut, 53mm at 12th fret.
Mechanical oil bath chrome.
Equipped with a micro piezo and a 3-band preamp gain + model TP4.


The handle is very nice with easy access to the treble cutaway.
The frets are well placed and polishing is very well done. It is with the edges of the button we do not even feel.
The instrument is well balanced and the body is not very thick (10cm) which enhances usability.
The setting of the preamp is childish and you get easily a good record sound, while retaining its type Takamine (quite round with rich media).


Sound side, I tapp on target!
I'm more oriented rock, blues / rock and this guitar suits me 100%.
To give an idea, we obtain, in acoustics, the sound of "New York with you" Phone or the intro to "La Grange" and ZZ.
However, we can forget the crystalline sounds hyper, unless you change the strings, must see ...
The volume of the body is reduced, we lose the low amplitude and are not his strong point, but it is a characteristic of this category (all brands).
With regard to the sound power, I have yet to acoustic amp, I tried it on a VOX AC30 that is not really suitable and the original sound was "a little" unnatural. I do not keep account of this test for my note.


I use it for a week of intensive!
I love the quality of the violin, the finish is very neat and the price / quality ratio is excellent. In addition to her look fabulous!
Its side, it's a matter of taste, I can only invite you to try it!
I tried a lot of models in this price range, but it suited me better because the neck profile was quite similar to that of my Gibson SG.
This is a good instrument for the rhythm in a record rock / blues and it's a way to access the magical world of Takamine for a price just right (270 Euros).
I would definitely do it again this election.
