"Very Pleased With Quality, May Need Some Set-up"

I bought this instrument in the wine red color. I previously owned another Takamine acoustic-electric. I've always thought, if Takamine's good enough for Bruce Springsteen, it's good enough for me. Bruce played Takamine acoustic-electrics for many years.I'm very pleased with the quality and look of this guitar. It is truly beautiful. It doesn't come with a case, but I like this guitar enough that I went out and bought a hard case for it from another company. This guitar seems to be of extremely high quality to me for the money. It sounds good, it feels good, and it looks beautiful.I didn't know the Takamine electronics would have a built-in tuner, but they do.I've had it for a few months. I suspect it may need a "set-up," because I'm getting a little bit of string buzz. That's not surprising, as it was shipped from overseas into the Arizona heat in the middle of summer. I don't think the "action" is completely right out of the box, but that's understandable since it came from so far away.It stays in tune and I think it's beautiful.I'm still planning to take it for a professional set-up, as I'm just a player and not a guitar technician.I think it's a great value for the money and I'm happy with my purchase. I lthink the quality is incredible for the money, but it may need a little set-up.I haven't tried the manufacturer support.
