Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
ITS MADE BY TAKAMINE!!! EXCELLENT QUALITY!!!!!!! Even the cheaper Jasmine guitars by Takamine are excellent quality!!!
How has it stood up over time?
I just bought it and its the first guitar I've owned that has never stepped out of tune once.
Your general opinion of this product.
Overall, this is one of the best acoustic guitars I've played in awhile. I am a soldier in the US Army and I haven't played for awhile. I'm used to playing Gibson and Taylor guitars and now I just need something to drag along to Afghanistan for my deployment and I came across this beautiful piece of wood. Plays better than my Gibson! And that's saying alot!
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
This guitar is fast. Honestly, better than a Gibson and this is coming from a daddys boy rich kid who started playing guitar on a Gibson Les Paul and a Marshall Full Stack amp system at the age of 11. I was lucky.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Bright and not too much bass.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish is beautiful and not cheap. True wood, not plywood like my Gibson felt. Beautiful pearl inlay rosary around the sound hole and pearl dot inlays in the fretboard.
How was the action out of the box?
Action is like a knife thru butter. It's fast and the strings are set perfectly against the frets with no pain to my finger tips. It's been a few years since I've played a guitar and my fingers for once, don't hurt like they used to.
