I just played the 2006 LTD edition OM cutaway at sam ash and have to say i was very impressed. Has any one else played this guitar. It is 1600 and I was wondering how it stacks up to a taylor or martin, because I tried a 1600 taylor dreadnought cutaway and was not impressed, yet I was with the takamine. Is takamine's reputation very good? Would you recommend this guitar?
I would. Takamine is a very good acoustic guitar brand. Great sound quality in my opinion.
Takamine's high end guitars rival Martin and Taylor in terms of construction and materials. If you like the Sound of the tak better then for you it is a better guitar.
