Value For Money : Excellent
Conventional "crossover". That is to say 14 boxes non-cash, neck width of 1 "7 / 8 at the nut, bridge position folk (closer to the soundhole).
Made in Japan with the care of the deemed Takamine of the Rising Sun.
Cedar Canada. Channel mahogany sides and back. Bridge and rosewood fingerboard. While the massive and gloss. Finish sober without eye-l'oeil (just a circle abalone binding and discrete), consistent with the trend of the moment not very original but perfectly realized. A beautiful guitar for sure.
For connoisseurs, it takes the shape of the TC135SC (a little high) then rather small (case of 49 cm long and 10 cm deep) with wood from the TAN60C (a little dear). This is reflected in the sound.
The preamp is a CTP-1R (tube) that the team's recent electro Japan Takamine and the sound is made by piezoelectric sensor. The restoration is natural.

UTILIZATION

For guitarists and electric folk who want to try to nylon, these classical guitars with narrow sleeves are a blessing. Just a quick drive for guitarists who need the thumb to certain agreements. And again, it depends on the size of your hands! The button has a slight radius unlike the real classics.
Compared with the TC135 and TAN60, I would say that the 650 has taken the best of both in pure sound. She has more than 135 scale and does not have this resonance a little "box" I did not like the TAN60 (apologies to fans of the TAN60). The sound is very balanced. Be careful though, these guitars are optimized for electro. Do not expect an acoustic sound level of the great classics.
For cons, the use of electro happiness.
For more details, I invite you to read the test conducted by "Guitarist and bass" No. 195 (available at the importer's "black box"). Everything is said.

SOUNDS

This guitar should almost all styles.
I play fingerstyle either acoustic or plugged into a "Schertler David."
The adjustment range is very wide electromagnetic (light + tone), everyone will be happy.

OVERALL OPINION

I did that for several days but knowing very well the TC135 and TAN60, I was able to quickly form an opinion. I was lucky to find one secondhand in mint condition (thank you announcements Audiofanzine!) Because it is a special model dedicated to certain markets and not very common.
Best of all, mine was delivered in a superb case that has nothing to do with the 91x series of cases sold separately. I think this is the case comes with the luxury Hirade (wooden structure covered with brown faux-leather, gold hardware and metal badge "The art of craft-Takamine-Guitarmaking").
Quality / price ratio excellent, without any reservations.
