Hard to believe you can get this guitar, with all solid wood, for $300. As much as I researched and read reviews from a ton of different websites I was still surprised when I opened the box. To start: the quality control tag that was inside the box had the setup specs. Classic setup the 1st string on the 1st fret was 0.5mm, on the 14th fret 2.0mm - the 6th string on the 1st fret was 0.6mm, on the 14th fret 2.5mm. The intonations from the 1st to 14th fret was spot on. With that being said, hearing the sound coming from this guitar was amazing!I've been playing music for over 40 years I now own a Washburn and Fender. Not to mention over the years I've owned several other brands and played quite a few more like, Alvarez, Ovation, Gibson, and Martin. I only bring it up to say, I do know what lower end and a top-end guitar sound and play like. This Takamine GD-20 has great sustain that keeps going. It has a warm, booming volume with crystal clear noting. I found no dead spots on it at all. Enough can't be said.about tonality on this guitar. To get this kind of detail and quality for $300! As clear as these notes are, and as loud as this guitar is the cedar top gives this guitar a warm, rich evened out tone. Even for the people who own or play expensive guitars this would be a great investment. If you're like me you'll do a ton of research. I would recommend a case for it. At this price range I have to give it a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ rating across the board! Happy Picking!
