After looking for about a week on line, I decided the Takamine EG523SC twelve string was the one I wanted. The dealers on line were selling this guitar for $750.00 plus $100.00 for a case. You don't just find cases cheap for a Jumbo twelve string so getting a proper case had to be part of the deal. This package deal was perfect. This guitar usually has fake pearl tuner buttons and fake abalone trim around the body. Don't get me wrong, that stuff looks beautiful, I just didn't need it. The guitar I got has chrome tuner buttons and three ply binding around the top. Otherwise it's the exact same guitar. Top is solid bookmatched spruce and the sides and back are flame maple. The back is bookmatched by the way. The neck is maple, rather shallow in depth, but wide, as a twelve string would be. Action out of the box is very good. Electronics are a built in tuner that mutes the output if you're plugged in. A built in tuner on a twelve string is fantastic on stage. Also the guitar has separate...
Other reviews are what prompted me to purchase this guitar when I was in search of a 12 string. This was an addition to a collection of other acoustic guitars including Taylor, Martin, Takamine, and Seagull. I have to say that without naming a brand this guitar ranks right up there with the sound quality of what I consider my best sounding guitar. If you are considering a 12 string purchase, you won't go wrong with this guitar as it sounds and looks fantastic. I can honestly say that if I tried this guitar in a music store and it had been priced $400 more than it sells for here on Amazon, I still would have been tempted to purchase it.
I agree with the reviews above, very well made guitar for the money, preamp is really great too. One thing, take this deal because its less than you'll find it most places, NOT for the bundle. I didn't receive the strap (didn't need it anyway), picks and cable were good quality, but the case is CARDBOARD, not just thin, BLACK CARDBOARD, zero protection at all, useless. It's still a great deal for a guitar that's well worth the money, but you will have to purchase a good quality case if you plan on taking it anywhere.
