Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A solid, beautiful instrument in both looks and sound that is tough to match for the price!"
Sound: I love this guitar. For the money, it provides an extremely large "bang-for-the-buck". The sound is very warm and clear, while carrying a fairly decent volume. I've found that the more that I push this guitar, the better it sounds. It provides a better than average sound when strummed lightly or finger picked. Compared to my KC70, which seems to excel from way down low to way up high and easy strumming to rockin' out, the EF740SGN is definitely a bit more mellow. With that being said, this is my "play every day" guitar. You will LOVE it!! Feature: The CT4BII preamp with built-in tuner cannot be beat - excellent! Craftsmanship is typical Takamine - very nice! One thing to note, this guitar did come with a case, though at the time I purchased it, this was not stated in the product description. Again, the case is pretty nice for the price. The interior is every bit as nice and protective as my other guitar cases, the only thing I would mark it down on are the buckles - they are a bit on the cheap side. With that being said, there is a locking buckle so it can travel with you and they certainly seem sufficient to keep the lid closed securely. Ease of Use: Per usual, the tuning knobs and other hardware is top notch. One of the things I love about this guitar is how easy it is to fret the notes. It's a lot of fun to play. Quality: Typical Takamine quality - you cannot go wrong! You are getting a LOT of guitar for the money on this one. Value: I've echoed this numerous times here, but this is one of the best values currently on the market. It makes a great entry-level/intermediate player's first guitar as well as it would serve as an excellent addition to any seasoned veterans studio collection. Manufacturer Support: I have never needed any service from Takamine directly, but they do have a US service center and their website is very nice and easy to navigate. The Wow Factor: The finish on this instrument makes it stand out from the crowd against the light stain finished instruments that are typical at this price level. This is truly a beautiful looking guitar! Overall: I will definitely be keeping this guitar in my collection for many, many years to come.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Beautiful guitar, Supreme craftsmanship, Pro guitar for mid level price!"
Overall: Fit, finish, playability were excellent right out of the box. I am not the biggest Takamine fan - I prefer Gibsons and Martins usually but this came out of the box ready to rock with a better setup than the last Gibson I bought. The guitar is flawless. Made in Japan at the pro factory - this guitar sounds great plugged in and acoustically. Looks cool too.
Style of Music: Acoustic Folk/Rock - singer/songwriter sad guy with an acoustic guitar sorta stuff. Indie rock like every other hipster out ther

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
