Sound — 10
The sound for this is like a "Blackbird" by the Beatles, the sound is so high quality, that, like I mentioned, I broke a couple strings on accident because my little 2 year cousin got in my room and started turning the knobs and snap snap! So I rplaced all the strings so they'd be all by the same company, Martin. But when the original strings were on they sounded great, that's why I am doing this review, because I love this guitar.
Overall Impression — 10
This is great for the style of music I like, I like (for acoustics) the blues, old rock like the beatles' acoustic songs, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Niel Young, and other artists like that. I can say honestly, that if this was stolen or broken or lost, that I would seriously go out and buy another one just like it, because this guitar is so high quality.
Reliability & Durability — 10
The guitar is depenable to withstand Live playing, the hardware can last a longtime because it was made so good, the strap buttons are strong and safe enough for playing and that is very good. I can depend on it, I have had it for over a year, it is high quality.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
The pickups are adjust on the insie perfect, all the elctronics works great, and when I play on the amp I have it comes out as clean as it is unplugged. The bridge is great and the strings are wired properly. There are no flaws within the guitar, all the bracing is good, the finish of the guitar is clear and good, the tuner and equilizer work perfectly, although you have to change the battery for the tuner every couple months depending on how often you play the elcetric or tune it.

Okay, this is a 2005 Takamine G series guitar, Made in Korea, features include tuner and equilizer built in, it's an acoustic-electric guitar, it plays very good and I am very staisfied with it. It was a suprise, my father was playing it when my mom said "Hey come see what's going on on the TV, Paul McCartney is on" so I ran over because I am a huge mccartney fan, and what did I hear? A beautiful sound of an angel's acoustic. This guitar has the sound thta everyone wants to hear form an acoustic, I'm glad I got this.
