A GREAT 12 STRINGED GUITAR
Product Rating

Product Review

I have tried a lot of 12 stringed guitars but I must say that this Takamine was a really nice one. Great sound, great guitar to play and a nice looking guitar as well. But that’s no secret that Takamine have great guitars, and this is no exception.

One of the best guitars available for the price

Product Review

I’m a huge fan of 12-string guitars. I have two others, as well as a 12-string banjo (banjitar). My other instruments are usually kept at the performance venue where I work, and I wanted a guitar to keep at home and write with. Ordering online without playing first is always risky, but the Takamine GJ72-CE was ready to go almost right out of the box,” not to mention visually appealing. After tuning up, it was wonderful. The action is very nice, very good for faster playing, and the overall sound is well balanced. It’s quite a bright sound, but there is plenty of bass tone and good mid-range to match. The intonation is also exceptional. Chords and notes voiced in the upper frets are in tune across all strings. The electronics are very good, especially for the price. There is a great deal of control over the sound, and it sounds very natural. And oddly enough (to my ears, anyway), it sounds the best and most natural with “EQ Bypass” turned on. The only complaint I have is the sticker on the back of the headstock is difficult to remove and left some adhesive residue, but I don’t think it’s worth knocking off a star for something trivial like that. Overall, for the price, this is a fantastic guitar. It sounds great and looks great. Five stars.

Finally There Is A Quality Guitar That Looks and Plays Great!!

Product Review

The Takamine GJ72CE has an amazingly beautiful finish! It looks and feels like a $2,500 guitar! And the weight is excellent for a Jumbo 12 String - it isn't too heavy which is great when you're playing a 2 hour show! I bought the Natural Finish model and it has a gorgeous look to it! The back is really special with that 2 piece look to it with the stripe running down the middle. I'm very excited about this guitar. I finally have something that makes me feel really good! Thanks AMS!!

I'll add my first impressions

Product Review

I play in 2 classic rock bands. I am over 60 and have been playing for over 40 years. I have owned many guitars and at least 5 12 strings. I was tired of hauling all my stuff back and forth and needed a second 12 string to leave at my 2nd band's rehearsal space. I have a Fender import model that I like a lot but I wanted a jumbo for this band. I could not find this model near me to try out. I trusted the reviews and pulled the trigger on the pay as you go plan (Thanks AMS). Guitar arrived in two days. Packed well and let me tell you that all the raves about this guitar are correct. Fit, finish, are great and it's beautiful. (I got the sunburst). This has quite a wide and thicker neck when compared to my Fender, but I have owned a jumbo Tak in the past and I will adapt fine. I tuned it up and tried some barre chords right off the bat. Felt good. Action is lower than I expected. I will have a set up done locally with extra light gauge strings. JUST BUY ONE!!

Good looking guitar, looks twice the price.

Product Review

Love this guitar. Beautiful woods, nice neck. Only beef is getting the battery to properly stay on the contacts so that the electronics work. I can't get the battery to sit right in its compartment and keep in contact with the two prongs on the bottom. Either I'm an idiot or I'm not the only one having this problem. Guitar sounds great unplugged.
