Price paid: $ 1350

Purchased from: A Guitar Shop

Features: This is an all-new guitar from Takamine. According to the site it is from the "Supernatural" series. Solid Rosewood side and back, rosewood finerboard and top. Scallop bracing, abalone inlay, golden/amber tuner. It has 20 frets, and an amazingly comfortable fingerboard. Since it's an OM body-shaped guitar it feels good on the lap too. No pickup for this one. // 8

Sound: Since it's made of rosewood, and the body's a little small you won't get a very loud sound, but a clear and mellow sound. It's the perfect guitar for people who likes to play soft country songs. Absolutely flawless, in my opinion. It doesn't make any buzzes, so it makes the playing experience so great. // 10

Action, Fit & Finish: The action is really good, the fingerboard is perfectly-sized, with a smaller body plucking was made easier. The frets were made of nickel, so it was a little rusty when I got it. After a little polish, it looks marvelous. // 8

Reliability & Durability: I have played this guitar for around a month. Personally, this guitar is not recommended for live playing, as it does not have a pickup. The strap button is a cute plastic one, but solid. // 8

Overall Impression: I play all kind of music, except rock. So this guitar is perfect for me. If this guitar was stolen, I would definitely buy a new one. The sound, comfort, layout is perfect and I don't have complaints for it, only the price tag. It is definitely a guitar worth buying. // 10
