Value For Money : Excellent
Made in Korea.

- Solid spruce top

- Maple neck

The finish is very good, the instrument is beautiful, it was great fun to watch ...

UTILIZATION

The handle is fine and pleasant, the grip is also despite the size of the fund. It is light.
Access to treble is improved by the pan-coupe that can easily reach a few more boxes.
Its side, it's pretty balanced, the bass is perhaps a bit behind.
This is a guitar that encourages playing fingers, picking.
The game is not in agreement as long unpleasant.

The string action was very high when I received it, I had to adjust it by adjusting the handle and by filing the nut.

SOUNDS

The sound is crystalline, with good power treble. This is probably maple gives this particular sound. You want to play the guitar picking.

In electronics, I use an amp with SR Technology JAM 150 + is the Piezo, and it shows. The preamp is fulfilling its role, with the settings is needed 3 band eq, tuner, notch filter, mid contour, by-pass.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a good instrument moyennne range I think.
With a Gibson Hummingbird, I can not move from the Gibson Takamine, but obviously, it's like driving a Porsche, and that is going on behind Mégane ... That does not mean that the Megane is a bad car ...

However, the finish is good, the sound more than adequate, it is hoped that the lower age improves a bit.
In any case, this guitar has a great look I think. Do not expect the sound of a J200, but hey, it's also five times cheaper.
This is a very good price / quality ratio.

And then, left-handed model, the Jumbo not run the streets, then we must acknowledge that Takamine offer us pleasure ...
