Product Description

The large solid cedar top atop koa back and sides sings out full-throated when played hard and renders the most delicate finger-picked passages with vibrant clarity. TK40 electronics bring all of the EG544SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar's robust sound to the fore onstage. Precision-crafted rosewood fingerboard, abalone rosette, and a beautiful finish result in a sharp-looking, easy-playing axe for real players.

I first played this guitar EG544SC in a local Guitar Center and fell in love with its warm cedar tone, "play-ability" and fretboard artistry. Looking for a better price than GC's $679, I searched Amazon. I noticed it was offered at 2 different price points: around $450 from some vendors and between $599 and $649 from others. Of course, I ordered the cheaper version. The moment I played it after it arrived, I suspected something was wrong but couldn't put my finger on it; the tone and feel weren't what I remembered from the one I played in GC. I began making comparisons to photos and specifications online.

After closer scrutiny, the model I received was of much poorer quality! And sounded horrible! 1. It was made in China, not Korea. 2. The Chinese version had the cheaper TP-4T pre-amp, not the higher quality TK-40 electronics. 3. The tuners had more play/wobble indicating poorer machining tolerances. 4. The Chinese version had no fretboard binding. 5. The fretboard inlays had less intricate shapes, were located at different frets, and sloppily inlayed. 6. The tuners were gold, not silver, and didn't have the Takamine "T" logo. 7. String action was uneven, disproportionate to string size, and didn't follow fretboard curvature; indicating poor nut and bridge "set-up" 8. Worst of all, the scale intonations were inaccurate; probably poor quality control of fret placement.

I contacted Takamine Customer Service; here's the email reply from the US distributor (KMC Music) for Takamine:
"After researching with our Takamine product manager, we have found that the EG544SC is a model that is proprietary to Guitar Center and Amazon.com (and a few other select dealers) which is why it is not listed on Takamine's website.

About two years ago I had a burning desire to learn how to play guitar. I went in and my parents said that I had a price range up to $500 wich can buy a fantastic tarting guitar. I was lucky enough to spot this in the used section of the Guitar Center I was at for about $350. When i played this guitar it just felt right. Two years late(after being bought used i remind you) this guitar is still in fabulous condition. The electronics can be sketchy sometimes, but it's still a good choice. Highly recommend this product as it has brought me great joy playing it
