Takamine EGS230
- In which country was it made? (USA, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
-Made in Indonesia (before the tsunami in 2004 puisqu'achetée )
- How many frets, what kinds of microorganisms and their configuration?
-20 Frets from what friends say the sound is picked up by a piezo pickup mounted under the bridge saddle and apparently quite attached to it ...
- What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
An easel-acoustic tee
- What are the settings (volume, tone, selector micro ...)?
-Settings: volume, bass, treble and a small button to control the level of the stack.
- What kind of stick?
-The handle? Uh .... I do not know but it suits me too well ... Some describe him as a wide ... ah yes .... like

Only 9 / 10 and again this would be 9.5 instead .... All because a tuner might have been nice


- The handle is it nice?
The handle-I love ... it goes well with my big hands and I really like varnish
- Access to acute (last string) Is it easy?
-Considering the shape, forget access to acute, but it was definitely not my priority and I am not a virtuoso.
- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
-The interface is good, whatever game it slips a little on my knees and I have put here and it's a bit annoying when I register. And then I would have seen a belt clip on the handle .... why on other brands and not her?
- Do you get easily a good sound ...?
-The acoustic sound was one I wanted the first time I've tried ... fell in love immediately. - In electro-acoustic she is doing very well, but I leave the treble middle and bass extension tube with 2 clicks; this to fill the gap size of the box ....

I was somewhat disappointed to learn that she was only mini-jumbo. This, added to the lack of belt clip on the heel of the stick earned him a stern 8 / 10


- Are they suitable for your style of music?
"With her, I discuss the folk and acoustic rock than the classic (in this area I know nothing) I know the tunes of" Forbidden Games "and" Asturias "for example, but not actually fucking play them.
- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
-When I plug it on my Marshall 5275 to make acoustrash but this is rare, otherwise it's in my PHONIC AM440> M-Audio Quattro USB-> PC for recording.
- What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)?
With my set-Acute Low = 0 = 2 is a very warm sound that comes out. Sometimes I try to pick up sounds more crystalline.
- What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
- I like: a good balance bass and treble.


- For how long have you been using it?
"I have since November 2004
- What thing do you like most/least about it?
-What I like least is that it tends to drag my knees, otherwise I love everything else
- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
"No it was a stroke of lightning on as book store. Edit: I forgot to mention that Washburn with the rosette form of parallel diagonal bars ... lack of thickness clearly affects the sound, so back to shelf-illico presto
- What is your opinion about the value for the price?
-The price seemed reasonable for what it is.
- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
-If I were doing and that TAKAMINE had the idea to blow it up a bit to make it a true Jumbo, I resume pronto.

Edit of 07/04/2009:
I finally bought myself a nice faux suede GEWA strap attached to the rear by the combined female jack / belt clip and front with lace comes with what I did pass the Nut on the ropes . A bit annoying when I do E major but ... is overcome as we can to oversights by the manufacturer so the overall score drops to 8.888999 / 10

Ralph Casey Miller's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Takamine EGS230


The handle is nice but access to acute convicted. This is not a criterion for purchasing this guitar.
light, it goes everywhere!
varnish, very pleasant, reassuring to the grip.


The sound is very balanced and allows for real versatility. folk, pop, jazz, blues.
But to maintain a good balance of sound do not look too much power: it is a mini jumbo!
no effect used. recording with a condenser microphone studio project B1 rather than with the piezo (this bill says more than adequate for the price) a little reverb goes really well!
In this price range is the best I've tried (timbre, versatility)
manufacturing quality exudes seriousness. it is a guitar that will age well (sound, round, wood)


In this price range it is great!
for the better one can turn to without micro seagulls but their sound qualities complement each other more than they can be replaced.
good product!

Takamine EGS230
- In what country does she makes? (United States, Japan, Mexico, France ...)

It was manufactured in t Indonsie, country style jumbo. A spruce top, back and eclipses in Nato, Rosewood and the keys in the rosette is made of concentric circles.

Mcaniques the oil bath is chrome and color is Natural Gloss.

- How many frets, what kind of micro as well as their configuration?

It has 20 frets with an electronic DJ3.

- What are the rglages (Volume, Tone slecteur micro ...)?

There are three pota glissire on the side, one for treble (trble), one for bass (bass) and one for gain. In addition there is a tmoin charge the battery (9v) that it is even cot of the handle.

- What type of race?

A short handle and a little off key in rosewood, and points of nacre.


- The handle is it enjoyable?

The handle is enjoyable, but it slides well hang a little, this allows a game exactly.

- Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?

CHAC is difficult to acute, you have seen the form? (Combo)

- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?

The shape is nice and the guitar is well-equilibrated before rear, even if freight Most recent internship are inaccessible, it has a weight quite lightweight compared to other lecto-acoustic.

- Gets it easy to sound good?

The good sound is easy even if the guitar has a tone neutral.


- Appropriate are your style of music?

Yes, because as it does not really well Determines that can play without looking like her fawn all.

- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?

I often branch on my Korg multi-effects (AX1500G) for cleans sounds nice.

- What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?

This is why I have chosen is that it did not sound like mtalliques three quarters of the folks.
Its tonality is neutral fat or trslgrement and highs are crystal lgrement, it fits all the games.

- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?

I think as his body is small enough, the sound does not have enough volume and especially to form, but compared to electro-acoustic, it pte well.
But the problem comes from the time when it is hot and humid is the horror, unlike when it is cold and dry or normal, she sings mlodieusement.


- How long have you use it?

it's going to be two years.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?

I love the mood (it changes with time), but it is quite fragile.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

yes and no, I have long wanted acqurir.

- How do you report qualitprix?

The series is a Takamine G SERIES economic so it's worth it, I pay the 300 era.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...

yes, but I think I will now add a little sister who has the voice, violin and arts genre.
