MGR/Riccardo Boose's review"Takamine EG-124C"

Takamine EG124C
I have been looking for a long time to acquire a classical guitar. Playing each brand and model in every store I would pass.

Prices were not the concern, quality and tone were, as well as ease of play. And lets be real, it should look nice also.

I never thought I would find this instrument in a family music store.

But I did. It was the Takamine model EG-124C. And it was the right price. Although, I could have gotten it for less online, you really have to play these things.

I have played much ore expensive guitars and not find satisfaction.

This guitar has a solid top producing excellent open viocing tones as well as up the neck in all registers. It also came equiped with electronis including a 3 band EQ.

It feels, sounds and looks great.
And I could afford it.

Ok, I could have been critical- but why, I really like the instrument.

I really love ebony fretboards, this does not have one. And that would have added cost.

I really like tortiose shell binding, this is straaight black...boo hoo.

I also like gold tuners, these are nickel.

So if you care more about what your axe looks like that how it sounds...dont buy this one.

This guitar is a Taiwon import, so what could you expect.

You would be wrong.

Every aspect of its construction looks like a fine hand made instrument.

Although there is a slight finish inconsistancy where the fretboard rests on the body, it is slight at that, and not a noticable defect visually or audibly.

I wish I were rich, and could buy a fine hand made instrument- but I am not.

Also, I wish I were Segovia- I am not.

But I do appreciate tone and playability- as well as quality and value. This is the guitar I bought.

If you are a student, looking for a really nice instrument- this si my reccomendation.

Takamine EG124C
Classical guitar electro-acoustic (G series) cutaway, made in china. Spruce top, mahogany body and sides, rosewood fingerboard, neck width at nut 50mm, shiny patent finish (note that there was a "black" version with the same features, except for the color).
Electronics, good quality, is a TP-4T preamp, it has four settings: volume, bass, middle, treble, tuner (rather convenient and reliable) and a battery level indicator (works with a conventional battery 9v which takes a long time if you remember to unplug the jack after use).
This is a "19 frets" playable without concern until the 13th or 14th box with cutaway. I may be lucky, but for a "made in china", the finishes are good (well, the paint is a little "orange", but tough) and wood (as opposed to a notice of this page), although small are correct for that price. In 5 years, nothing has changed.


Knowing the brand takamine long, but models more "prestigious" (I still have a jumbo EN20 1991), and manufactured in Japan, I did not expect a "miracle" by purchasing this small model made in China. Actually, I just wanted a playable and easy to take (holiday weekend) everywhere without stress guitar. Well, I was amazed! This guitar is very nice. The handle is very easy, rather late for a classic, with a very correct action. Ergonomics is very good, over the cutaway allows you to play up to the 14th box. The weight is surprising at first glance, it seems rather heavy (my main question is Cuenca a more imposing and downright lighter gauge), but you get used to very quickly. Quickly obtained a good sound acoustics as amplified.


This is my "guitar work" somehow, in the sense that I always have on hand and can cover a wide range of style (classic, Bossa, varieties, or even more ... well, metal does not count anyway! These are nylon strings so ...). I amplified with a jazz chorus Roland or a Vox Pathfinder 15r (depending on the volume required). Then I also use it for live recording (TP4-4T is good in this exercise). In acoustics, the sound is good, balanced, rather "soft". It is amazing for the price, but of course it lacks projection (disadvantage cutaway I think). Yes it is not the great sound of a guitar luthier or other Ramirez, but at the risk of repeating myself, this is actually a pleasant surprise for this price!


I use it for 5 years. I bought it for specific reasons not try many other models, having already what I needed "next". I was very pleasantly surprised by this guitar and if I decided today to issue a favorable opinion is that she deserves it. As said in the title, this is an excellent quality / price ratio and if production is homogeneous (I may have fallen on a good run) and you are looking for a classic electro, rather robust, easy to live and little expensive, it is probably one of the best choices.

Takamine EG124C
Taiwan as the largest korea and taiwan now make very good violin
rosewood rosewood cedar wood as good species
3 + takamine relages equalizer gain volume
bridge classical
but low enough rope ... without fretage
run "Paste"


Channel not too soft galbbr /> easy access to acute
very good ergonomics
its got very "gypsy"


Cest sound very clean but very good tuning from acute worthy guitar master and non-flowing bass and midrange discrete but not neutral
a very good guitar very rare to find a less than 450 500 euros ... in very good condition and with good reason ...
sound ...!!!!!!! sound ... !!
and a branch or not explode!


Never dcu in 5 years and not ready to sell it ... TOO RARE
between 450 and 500 euros if you have the chance to dig up a go ahead

Takamine EG124C
Manufacturing in China
Handle wide enough (at the same time you are on a classic)
Table mass


The handle goes alone to play a real pleasure.
CHAC is very acute to the fact ais pan coupbr /> For usability it holds well in hand, in weight is not lightweight but not the weight of a ca elephant is reasonable
The sound is impressive for a scraper has such a low price


To play things more style reggae, ska, chanson francaise as ogres or volo is very good
The sound is well rounded as I like


What I like most, the ease and pleasure to play on it sounds good right now, not even being a virtuoso.
The ratio quality price is what I still bluffing to me is a steal
If the choice had to be rebuilt, it is without hesitation that I would do
