This is my fourth twelve-string guitar. It's the best. My first one was Gibson. I sold it and bought a pre-1964 Martin D12Mur20. I sold that because I needed cash and bought a Taylor GS5-12 about 3 years ago. Taylor is the sweetest sound and performance of all my 12s. This Takamine is as good as Taylor, but different. Takamine is very well made, and as a fearless person, its voice is different from that of Taylor, who is a giant. Tek played as well as Tyler. These are the two models I have always kept, and I like both very much. Tyler stayed at home; Takamine traveled with me. If I could only own one model, and I had to choose one of these four models today, I would choose Takamine EF381SC, because of its quality, sound quality, versatility and omni-directional value.

When my Wechter Pathmaker's woes were rubbed into wood, I evaluated the alternatives in the same way I chose 3D printers: I bought eight different ones from Amazon, hoping to return just a few. This guitar is the winner. To be sure, Greg looks like he has a love son with Elvis Presley's ghost, but the instrument checks all the boxes. FORM factor: it is described as a Jumbo, which is accurate in terms of two of its three body dimensions. Fortunately, the body depth is only 4.75 ", more of a fearless standard." This gives most of the sound benefits of Jumbo without having to pull your right arm forward so far. It also bends like a Big Mac, so it's better to sit on your lap than to be fearless. On the whole, it is very comfortable to play. FRET work: get close to what you get from an expensive private pianist. Not much material has been deleted, so they are good and high, with crowns at the top, allowing them to return to the original circular worry line shape. The ends of each FRET are curved on the semicircular edge, rather than chamfering too steeply. This is unusual and very desirable. The end of the worry is dealt with in order to keep the sharp edge away from the player's passer. Most guitar manufacturers have a quick and easy way to do this: they beat the end of the trouble with a long chamfer. This makes the player less space before the treble E string falls off the edge. The preferred method is to use a more moderate chamfer, rounded on sharp edges.

I bought these 12 strings because I always liked the feeling and movement of the Ovation guitar. I also bought it because I didn't like the tacky decorative leaf decoration on the port, and they finally threw it away with the TX series. The overall structure is good. But I had to wipe some black paint fingerprints off my neck. Five stars is a beautiful performance, a good feeling, a great sound, a great guitar. But minus a star, because it was sold without being checked, so I did some work.

This 12-string is awesome.This is the second 12-string I have owned. The first one I owned was an intermediate/cheap model that has lasted me 13 years and I decided to upgrade. I wanted something nicer and easier to play. Before purchasing the GD30CE-12NAT I considered the following:Breedlove Pursuit 12 (Concert body, not as loud as a dread more for playing plugged in)Martin D12X1AE (Dread body, No body cut, electronics are primitive, No built in tuner)Seagull Coastline S12 (Dread body, No body cut, Cedar Top, thick neck)Seagull Excursion Walnut 12 SG (Dread body, No body cut, Very bright)Takamine GJ72CE-12NAT (Jumbo body, more for strumming power, electronics too fancy for me)Taylor 150e (Dread Body, No body cut, electronics are primitive, No built in tuner)After reading all the reviews on these and pouring through many threads on acoustic forums. I weighed all the options. I kept coming back to the GD30CE-12. There wasn't any talk about these guitars as recommendations on any forums, mostly Taylor/Martin/Seagul/Breedlove ... so I was kind of leery. I did however read some awesome reviews on this guitar on Amazon & Musiciansfriend.The GD30CE-12NAT had all the options I was looking for (electric, built in tuner, cutaway, solid spruce top, mahogany neck, dreadnought for playing unplugged). One thing that had me concerned is that it may be poor quality as the price was on the lower end of the products I was considering and I didn't want another intermediate/cheap guitar. I deci...

The best 12 strings I've ever played. (I already have 4 +) I recently returned a new Rickenbacker 12-string that costs three times as much as my A-12 Godin. (I prefer Godin's thin satin neck feel and playability to Ricki's deeper high gloss design) Godin's action and tone are just right, right out of the box. It sounds a lot like the guild 12 strings I had in 1974. The sound of bright wooden instruments.. Like a top singer on the roof or a new Mrs. Christie. Its tunes are kept very well. I recently ordered some FlatwoundLa Bella strings, which I suspect will soften the bright shiny sound and become more "electric". We'll see. I like both qualities. Building and completing A12 (like all Godin s) is equivalent to guitars costing hundreds of dollars or more.

Considering the price of this guitar, this is a good purchase. I have two other 12 strings (Kent Hollow body Electric bought a new one in 1968 and the Rickenbacker 620Mel 12 in the early 1990s), which is almost as easy to play as those. I was particularly impressed by the beautiful wide nut and the complete sound from the fisherman pick-up system. I've run it through a fender studio 85 with JBLD120-F speakers, and it sounds great, and I decided not to set it above D to avoid excessive pressure on the top and bridge deck. I will use the complaint class to bring it to the tone of the E concert.

I'm 52 years old. I've been playing since I was 13. I've had a lot of 6 and 12 years old. It's so solid, the string moves are great. Onboard tuner and EQ. It sounds incredible to unplug or unplug. Refuse to get out of tune.

Bought this guitar as a gift for our 14-year-old intermediate player son. We want a better guitar than a beginner, a guitar that he can keep for years. When shopping, I am not very confident about whether the guitar is good value for money, because the information / feedback about the brand / manufacturer is limited. I am pleased to say that this guitar exceeds my expectations for the quality, tone and function of the construction. This is a strong structure and looks like a beautiful instrument. Just open the box, there is an irritable buzzing sound on the lower 2 strings. Like most new instruments, it needs to be set by a guitar technician / pipa player. After that, it played very well. I will recommend this guitar to players of any level. Definitely a goalkeeper!
