Takamine TSF48C
Data sheet, see the various sites.


Getting easy hands handle end and pleasant. Guitar lightweight. Ergonomics "tudie." Wood utiliss "noble" that should still improve the sound and acoustics in time.
This guitar is affirmed, over time passe.Aucun weakness. The violin is like the "first day". Gnrale way of Takamine seem vieilir, as long as we are to take care minimum, see 10 1983 for example, and others who remain small jewelry "guitar". It always crosses on stage with happiness ...


Lacking in sound, though ... it depends mostly on you and your game.
Branch is impressive. Its own, very powerful, malable wish, with the cool tube (on mine a CTP2).
I was branch on various amps, AER, Marshall, sound systems, studio ... RESULTS always up. The guitar fits, thanks its cool tube all situations ... I do not know the feedback.


5 years of happiness I only feature, keeping this guitar, my "generations" Future ...
Although a bit chre purchase, this guitar is a quality price ratio is all ok. Price justified, therefore, which I think should remain stable over time.

Solid spruce top, ebony fingerboard, rosewood else, c1 preamp etc ... everything is there: https://www.takamine.com/fr-FR/guitars/archive/dsf48c


Taking excellent hand cutaway for easy access to acute


I accompanied the singing of a folk repertoire.
This guitar will miss severely acoustic projection, will deliver a balanced sound and a dynamic hyper perfect once connected. I play a jam SR 150, which is also a very good amp, and I added the micro Triax Takamine that an input and expected volume on the preamp tube C1 guitar.
This configuration allows me to really exploit a wide range of sound quality, the pick or fingers. The sound is not going to be ultra typed, making this ultra versatile guitar. However, it does not have the signature sound of a Gibson or Taylor.
Day or acoustics of the place is not at the rendezvous, the settings on the preamp will be really useful and effective.


I use it for over a year now, I've tested a lot of guitars, and I still do.
At least put an exorbitant budget in Taylor will not "go anywhere" or a Martin I'd be afraid of getting bored, I do not find "unfortunately" not equal to this guitar.
I say "unfortunately" because I do not really like her look. Matter of taste because the guitar is extremely well finished, nothing to say on that side either, it is not at Gibson.
Again, the price is unbeatable. I use it 3-4 times per week for solo acoustic gigs, duo or trio with a sampler, the Cajon against the low and even with a drummer, and it is always his job despite transport, temperature variations and the many ways that I found for the bully.
In any case, it often happens that guitarists are wondering what is this config congratulating me on the sound, try.

Takamine TSF48C
Everything has been said except that which makes the feel so nice on this guitar is the presence of ebony and rosewood not as shown in most opinion in France, but confirmed when looking at its features on the official website Takamine. Note then.


Versatility undeniable in all styles and registers of play this guitar is really a treat to listen and comfort, and the more it really flatters the eye, almost a little too much of the rest ... .


Impeccable. The sound is clear, balanced and powerful. Can be modulated at will in acoustics, for how to play, or amplified (Roland AC60 for me Korg pedal + AX3A when connected directly to a mixer).


15 days of use. Brand new, beautiful, and when I think that with age the instrument is still the better, ... if played well naturally.
It is understandable that so many musicians and professional singers use it regularly, especially on stage, because this guitar is really nice to play, it's hard to stop and it's true that it is more not really tiring. You still have to get used to the width of the nut (4.28 cm), which is that the gap between the ropes is a bit wider than on a traditional folk guitar. And the decor Santa Fe may displease myself that what had long departed from this guitar and actually prefer the counting of TAN10C. But it's worth it to go beyond the formal aspect (the table is really beautiful with this almost white spruce, and the rosette around the net a little blue), it is really above the "(super) natural" of the Japanese brand and well at a Taylor or a Martin almost twice as expensive. In addition, its price has fallen this year (about 1400 euro, but some shops may have to just under 1300 euro). So it's an investment and certainly more than interesting course!

Beautiful finish, the real Violin!


Handle very nice, slipped ideal, perfect varnish.
The access is facilitated by the sharp cutaway.
The ergonomics are perfect mongout, the guitar is light, well balanced and grip immediate and natural.
THE Son issued by this guitar is excellent, with stunning clarity, my first try-even without pick-me amazed!


I try my hand to play all styles of music, from classical through folk, it was even attempted by the followers of picking ... nothing to say, it really fits all styles.
Tested the amp sound Marschall as50r ... and recently played on Fender Acoustasonic SFX II
The tube preamp gives a very powerful sound on the guitar, really true to the sound quality.


It took me about 2 years to stop this guitare.Cette guitar is a marvel, before the plunge, I played a lot of guitars and especially the brand Takamine and there ... phew! Love at first sight!
Beyond the aesthetics and flawless finish, the sound is no exception: perfect balance, clear sound from low to high ... beautiful!
For me, it has no default ...
The price is certainly a little high but I do not regret my investment.
I do it again this election easily.
