Has anyone played them before? Specifically in the $500-$700 range. My friend keeps hating on Takamine but they seem to look alright. Opinions?
Ibanez GRG170DX
Peavey 6505+ Combo (60w)
Roland Cube 20w
Ibanez TS-9
Boss Chorus Ensemble CE-5
An old housemate of mine played a Takamine, but I've no idea which one/price. It wasn't a top of the range model though.
I enjoyed playing it, it was nice. He certainly liked it, and it did sound pretty good.

Awesome guy right here
they're all right, and well made, but i haven't found them tonally to be anything special. i've tried a lot of them, and some - including the jumbo - are a bit dead-sounding, and i've played a lot of the same model of each so it's not just an issue with an individual guitar. the more expensive taks deliver better unplugged sound.
