Takamine EF261S -BL FXC Cutaway (Gloss Black) Reviews
Replaced my APX 4A with this guitar and have been very pleased with it. I play at Church meetings regularly so needed the electroacoustic bit as much as the acoustic. This does both jobs well, not spectacularly, but well enough. The smaller body lends itself to a strong but nice midrange although you do lose out a little on bottom end. Acoustically, given it's size I can't fault it really. Through a PA it's very good too, although a side by side comparison woth a Taylor 710ce (about two and a half grand) did show its shortcomings, but then it's four times the price and is a cutaway dreadnought giving better low end anyway. The split bridge compensates well for the dreaded G string tuning difficulties (more a prob with leccies...) and I've had no problems. The electronics work fine and the built in tuner is a stroke of genius (people think you're tuning by ear as you look down at the guitar!). Very stable and accurate in my experience. Initially I put 10s on as these had suited my APX, however this was a big let down. This Tak has a deeper body than the APX so went to 12s and it started to sing!
This guitar works well for finger picking or strumming but is excels when picked due to the lovely midrange and clear top end.
So, in conclusion, a workman like guitar that performs solidly for the money. I can think of nothing to critisise here. Well, until I heard that Taylor...
