"Great guitar"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Just received it a couple days ago. Perfect condition and looks awesome. Tuned the guitar to pitch and that was it. Plays and sounds great!! I was a bit disheartened because the top and sides are laminate koa and was thinking of returning it; however, once I played it I was hooked. Absolutely awesome. Very Taylor-like ( to me)in sound and feel. Get this one.... you won't regret it.

"Awesome acoustic electric"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I’ve had this guitar for a couple of weeks now. I purchased a “blemished” model from zZounds . I couldn’t find any bad marks on the guitar whatsoever. It’s gorgeous. The case had maybe one Knick in it. I guess that was the blemish. This was a great purchase. The guitar is absolutely beautiful. It’s catches people’s eye right away. The hardware is awesome. The tuning knobs turn real smooth and hold tune for days. The pick up is crisp and clear. Absolutely professional. This guitar is the best acoustic I’ve ever owned and I’ve had a few martins and a Gretch jumbo. The guitar did come with 11 gauge strings, and I did find it alittle bit hard to fret. The action out of the box might be a little too high. Instead of adjusting the truss I decided to switch it to 10 gauge acoustic strings. It plays real easy now with the lighter strings, you can even do bends and leads on it. I researched electric acoustics in this price range extensively, and I am pretty confident I got one of the best options. I chose this guitar over the Taylor 214ce and the ce deluxe. The pick up system in this takemine, in my opinion, is superior to the Taylor system. Also the look of this guitar is much more high end and pleasing to the eye than any other good quality model under $1500. My only small complaint is the fret ends are rough to the touch. You may need to use a small fine Emory board to smooth the fret ends out.
Absolutely professional pick up system.
Split bridge improves intonation access.
Ease of Use
Alittle hard to bar chord out the box with 11 gauge strings.
Seems to be if very good build quality.
The blemished price made this deal a no brainer.
