manufacturing made in Japan.
pre-amp has CTP2 lamp [exceptional]
Mechanical gold plated bath oil.
A handle super easy to play.
a non-cutaway model, therefore, not easy for the treble.
NEX shape is very different to the game of the Dreadnought shape. AC calls for a little while to get used to.
The sound is very harmonious balance with a very good record in the midrange.
I would prefer more bass [or so is that my ear had become accustomed to my old guitar [Takamine G320] who had only low].
A very good sustain.
I also say that the sound will change over time.
This is the guitar I wanted.
Very good acoustics and exceptional amplified thanks to pre-amp lamp. Its very very warm and distinctive look. [Even if a little on the Gibson hummingbird tropcopie]
I play over the past six months.
minimum: the form NEX
most: the esthetic side Breathtaking [like all models of Takamine Limited]. the sunburst is beautiful [not too dark, do not trust pictures on the internet that often overshadow the side sumnburst BCQ]
I tried other models of Takamine and Taylor in the same price range [~ 1500euros].
at the same price takamine guitar identical but not a limited edition.
the same price at Taylor; superb treble but a lack of bass caught. and no pre-amp lamp.
It gives me great value for money: you have a custom [500 copies worldwide] for the price of a series.
I would do without hesitation that choice
