Product Description

The Takamine EG523SC Jumbo Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar is crafted from the finest handpicked tonewoods!
Hand-crafted by expert luthiers, the Eg523SC provides players with an unmatched excellence and surprising affordability. These new guitars are built with traditional Cutaway, Jumbo bodies and feature Solid Sitka Spruce tops, and Flame Maple back and sides. These Jumbo Cutaways boast Rosewood fretboards, inlayed with Mother of Pearl and Abalone.

Takamine Jumbos feature the world famous Takamine TK40 pickup, along with the performance and value that players have come to expect from Takamine's G-Series.

The G Series from Takamine has created great controversy. Play a G Series guitar and you're apt to think it's one of the finest acoustic/electrics made. That's because it is. Actually, each one is made under the commanding rule of the luthiers who hand craft the guitars of the pros. Which is precisely why the G Series feel and sound,so good.

Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
I thought it might be a a little big, but after playing it for while feels great. I went back to my Martin and found the Takamine EG523SC was easier to play! (more room for fingers).
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Great sound
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish perfect
How was the action out of the box?
Action was a little high, I had it setup by a luthier with new strings. $55.00 now is perfect.
