|provides a nice pre-aged" tone and a very high-end look. These are features usually reserved for more expensive guitars, but the Takamine GS330S acoustic guitar achieves these features at a bargain price. Genuine solid cedar top, Rosewood fretboard, Laminated nato back and sides, Light satin finish, Dreadnought body style, Takamine GS330S Acoustic Guitar-GS330S6 String AcousticThe G Series from Takamine has created great controversy. Play a G Series guitar and you're apt to think it's one of the finest acoustic/electrics made. That's because it is. Actually, each one is made under the commanding rule of the luthiers who hand craft the guitars of the pros. Which is precisely why the G Series feel so good, and sound so good. The contention, however, comes down to this: How can such fine instruments be so incredibly affordable?There is no simple answer. But what we can tell you is that these guitars rival the mid and many upper line models of other popular makers."|

I bought one blind on eBay after very little research. Got it earlier in 2013 for a paltry $125. It was built in 2001, and boy, do I wish I had known about this guitar back then (MSPR then was $499.95)! I've had Martins, Guilds, Gibsons, Fenders, Washburns and a host of others, but this one is truly the best sounding and easiest playing guitar I've ever had. The solid cedar top has aged beautifully and has stood the test of time - no cracks anywhere. The satin finish lets the wood resonate wonderfully. Laminate nato sides and back and mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard and bridge and Tak's grover-style tuners. I put some light-medium Martin clearcoat strings on it and the unamplified sound about blew me out of the room! I can see why this model was such a popular guitar. I've had Taks before, but this one is so far above what I had previously owned. Everything about this instrument says quality and pride in workmanship. It has Tak's dual-action truss rod, but mine needed no adjustment. To juice it a bit, I replaced the plastic nut and saddle with real bone and replaced the plastic bridge pins with rosewood. Set it up myself and, guess what...IT GOT EVEN SWEETER! Excellent balance of tone with deep, rich bottom, satisfying middle and bell-like high notes. And the harmonics are crystal clear. Newer models have the pinless bridge, which may be a plus, but for the money I spent, I FLAT-ASS LOVE THIS QUALITY INSTRUMENT. Tak is now making guitars with split saddles, and the last couple years of the GS330S model have them, but again, this one was super the way I got it and it got better with my "improvements". Love the Tak narrow neck. They quit making this model in 2012, and that's a crying shame. You can buy 'em for under $300 on eBay or at music stores that have had 'em sitting around for a while, and I recommend you try 'em out...if you're seeking a clear sound with a voice of it's own, this is your guitar. I guarantee you'll be surprised at the craftsmanship that went into these. Some were made in Korea (mine was), but Tak also made some in Taiwan, which are said to be even better. Boy, would I like to find out!!! I don't think I'll ever own a better instrument, especially for the pittance I gave for it! There should be more than five stars!
thisis a good guitar,in fact,I almost want to say great,it is amazing for a laminate back and sides,I have two of them.A bassy cedar tone,but very good sound for price range.A beautiful guitar too.Highly recommend.
