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, the 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.
