Takamine ESF40C
Guitar factory in Japan, the normal high end Takamine ...
20 frets Paisses enough for comfort
Double Nut
Prampli CT4BII Takamine (beta version of the excellent CT4B)
Rglages: 4-band EQ: Bass, Medium, Treble and Volume - Trs effective
The prampli is equipped with a tuner - extra - plus pitchable on all tones!
The 9V battery is easy to ACCS, directly extractable prampli not need to go through the sound hole like some guitar (Seagull, Simon & Patrick ...)
The neck has a rosewood fingerboard
However, little BMOL, the tuner is capricious when the battery weakens, it still does not light the first time. But hey, make it last a can of the pramplification ...


Channel trs enjoyable, gliss IDAL, varnishes perfect.
Access in acute pan is facilitated by the fact.
Ergonomics gnrale is excellent, as you play standing or sitting.
Even without trying dlivr by the sound this guitar is hot, clarity poustouflante a must.

BMOL: I do ask for a belt attached to play the guitar while standing is first Designed for singers guitarists ... just go a little effort ultimate gentlemen Takamine luthiers!


Idalie sound for my directory: pop rock folk blues
I play this guitar with a Marshall AS 50 R (50 watts acoustic soloist)
The sound is magical and all the guitarists I've met and with whom I jou are unanimous: a ring of hell in paradise.


I use this guitar for 6 months.
She is beautiful as the city's scne!
It sounds terribly well plug my amp, and without being too much industry.
I tried a Taylor and a Lag ... I port my choice on this one.
The report QualitPrix is ​​the best I know, by far.
If I had to buy a guitar, I would do the same choice. Without hsiter.

Takamine ESF40C
Finish Japanese Country Jumbo shape, a beautiful turquoise inlay at 12th fret. The table is solid cedar and there is a chromatic tuner (very handy!) Incorporated. She is really beautiful and the finish is impeccable.


The cutaway allows easy access to acute and stick thin is really nice, fairly close to an electric guitar! Neither too small nor too big, it should suit all sizes.


My repertoire is rather focused "pop / rock" (from Bowie to Nirvana Radiohead through to give you an idea), I was looking for a versatile guitar with a fairly good performance of the notes.
The sound is very acoustic lens and provides an immediate pleasure ... An invitation to play!


This guitar is accurate, sounds great acoustics and is a pure joy when connected.
In short, I chose this one ...

Table-Solid cedar
-Dos and mahogany wicker covers

Trs-smooth finish
Varnish-fragile, but being protected as it should be the soundboard (the purpose of a varnish!)


Channel enjoyable trs
The pan-shot and the shape of the body can play any style
-The guitar is not too heavy and will fit all sizes
-The sound is warm, you can put any strings it will sound very enjoyable!


I often play the picking, the rhythm of the arpge and this guitar is perfectly suited my mood. Being also a guitar teacher I needed a guitar "sounds strong," and it is!
I play a sound WATTS 600 HK LUCAS, or ASR on a Marshall amp 50 watts, in the two cases is excellent! JOperation also qualizer BOSS EQ 20: an excellent product, which provides crystal clear sound, or a round ... you can do anything with this BCAN. Better to buy this type of machine to change prampli!


I use this guitar for 3 years. Dernire week I tried the same with the new MODEL prampli CTP1 (lamp), I must say I prfre my prampli CT4B over my sr got.
Better to buy an external equalizer.
I advise all singers guitarists!
Excellent quality price!

Takamine ESF40C
Country Jumbo shape steel
Pan coupbr /> Table in Cedar
Eclises, mahogany neck and back
mcaniques oil bath dores

Pre-amp takamine

Shiny patent.

The finish is perfect. Do not look dedant. The glue between the drool a little wicker covers and back. It is on that we should not look at a Martin or Taylor cot because it would bring him plutt prejudice.


This will make ending for 10 years that owns and I love it. The action is low trs, Access in the highs are perfect. The shape steel jumbo country is enjoyable trs. I also have a dreadnought. It's totally DIFFERENT. The handle is gnial, round profile. A feeling of ice. Access in acute perfect.
Patina over time just the sound it seems!

Time also the bending shoe.


I play everything especially the fingers, not many heard mdiator. Good for the volume of a cot dreadnought, go your way. The sound is plutt medium, sharp enough low end but lack a bit of volume. We can not have everything for an instrument in this price range.

Electro sound is no more. I have not had the opportunity to try many and so difficult for me to get an ide.


I am satisfied with this guitar trs I use mainly for tuning spciaux second example. It is clear that it comes second from my other guitar that costs 4x more. The diffrence is impressive but hey it does not matter.

I highly recommend trying this guitar in its most recent version now because it is the dtour. She has something that is its charm.

For me the overall score is justified.
