I am, however, a fan of Takamine. This is a great example of one of their mid-high range acoustics of the 1990s. The pinless bridge is likely as good as that on any high quality guitar, the cedar top is a great choice for strumming and fingerpicking, and I believe these also had the Takamine Palathetic pickup. They are monster pickups and a big part of how Takamine survived as a company in the early years.
All that said, I hate this guitar.
Yes, I hate it. And for only one reason.
That sound hole.
That bloody goofy guitar shaped sound hole.
It looks like an idea that a child had in art class, or worse yet, it looks like a logo. I'm sure somebody thought it was clever.
They were wrong.
Am I alone in this hatred?
