- 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
