Sound — 10
This guitar has a resonance that you just have to hear to believe! I have heard guitars which cost thousands more, and if I had the money to spend for a more expensive guitar I would still buy the Takamine. It works equally well with finger picking or playing cords. This is definitely one of the best sounding acoustic/electric guitar in today's market. I have played many different guitars, and not one can compare or even come anywhere close to the EF341SC. The price, A Steal! The sound, Amazing.
Overall Impression — 10
My over all inpression is OUTSTANDING.. I play many different types of music, and it is every thing I could ever ask for in an acoustic/electric. It stays in tune really well. If it were ever lost/stolen I would defiantly replace it. Out of all 8 of my guitars, this one is played the most. Reliable and durable.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Reliability and durability..I have had my Takamine for about 2yers. I haven't had one problem with mine yet, and I take it every where. It has gone camping, garage jams, ECT.. The hardware is solid and the finish is tough. This would make a great gig, and studio guitar..
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The action is amazing right off the floor. It plays clean on every string and every fret. Bare chords are a breeze. The intonation is dead on. The rich black color of this guitar along with the contrasting trim is eye candy of the sweetest kind. A really beautiful instrument. This model is hand built, and top quality.
