Product Description

The Takamine G406S New Yorker acoustic guitar is an affordable, beautiful guitar with a parlor body, but huge tone. Perfect for songwriting, the New Yorker features a solid spruce top, rosewood fingerboard and sides, gold tuners and a 3 piece back made of rosewood and quilted maple.

The New Yorker is the smallest profile Takamine, and a traditional old-time guitar shape that produces an immediate, clear, full-bodied tone that evokes the old 78 rpm records of the 1940's. The strumming voice is sharp and airy, and when played finger-style, the New Yorker sings with a sweetness and character that makes the player want to dig a little deeper into the roots of American music.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Takamine products.

4 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Buy it, play it, enjoy it."
Sound: Tone and projection are outstanding for the size of the G406S, even with the factory strings. Good bass and highs, both. Suitable for solo or group play. Feature: I bought the instrument, and that's what I got - a guitar. No bag or accessaries. But for the selling price of $349, I have no complaints. Ease of Use: It's instantly playable and very pleasureable, at that. Blues, folk, jazz - everything comes easy and natural. Quality: I originally was looking for something in addition to my mini Martin for travel purposes, so cosmetics were not much of a consideration. Still, it's an attractive guitar - the integrated back is beautiful. Value: A bargain, even at retail, though I got a great deal, I think, below advertised pricing. Manufacturer Support: N/A (yet) The Wow Factor: Hey, it's a guitar, my tenth in the corral. Sexy? My wife says Roy Orbison wasn't sexy, but look at the sound the man produced. The 406 is like that... Overall: My stable includes Guild, Martin, Stagg, Alvarez, Kramer, another Takamine, etc., but I expect this one is a permanent addition. If you're looking for a mid-range purchase that's playable beyond it's cost, buy this guitar. If aliens with keen musical taste abducted it, I would definitely replace it and store it in a lead-lined locker thereafter.
Style of Music: All.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "New Yorker review"
Sound: Has a good sound for the size of the body. Great for fingerstyle blues. Ease of Use: Action was really high when it arrived. I had to adjust the neck and lower the saddle. Neck is very straight so I dropped the saddle and still had no fret buzz. Quality: The sound is good to great but the finish has much to be desired. Lots of trash in the finish and the side of the fingerboard is stained for color and you can see where they taped the neck. some of the binding around the fingerboard has gaps. The Wow Factor: The abalone is done very well. Looks good over all Overall: I'll keep this because it fits my use and sounds good.
Style of Music: blues and bluegrass

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.
