The fullness of a quality dreadnought for a great price.

Built on the popular dreadnought design, the Takamine EG530SC acoustic-electric guitar from the G series is a louder, more powerful-sounding instrument. The dreadnought has been the most popular and widely recognized acoustic guitar since its creation in the 1920s. Its broad top and deep body create a large resonant chamber that emphasizes bass response and provides a great deal of volume. This design excels in ensemble playing and is heavily favored by flat pick players. The solid spruce top offers balanced tone, while the sapele back and sides bring out plenty of projection. The dovetail neck joint, rosewood bridge and fretboard, and mahogany neck offer plenty of sustain, and the asymmetrical neck and 1-5/8″ nut width provide comfort for intricate fretboard movements.

At the heart of this Takamine guitar is an impressive electronics system, letting you amplify your sound with intuitive frequency controls. The CP-100 pickup is an innovative pickup design over the conventional under the saddle piezo design. It uses a U-shaped aluminum rail, securing the pickup and saddle for a snug fit and balanced response from the instrument, not just pressure on the strings. The Takamine TK40 preamplifier features volume control, bass, middle and treble frequency slider controls, EQ bypass, a notch filter, tuner and a mid contour switch.

The Takamine EG530SC guitar’s chrome hardware, chrome tuners, and gloss finish adds a striking touch to this already beautiful instrument.

This guitar has not been pre-owned or played, but is lightly stamped “used” on the back of the headstock, and a new serial number applied to prevent the guitar from being sold as new factory stock. That being said, this guitar is a fantastic value! Everything works, plays, and sounds as it should. There have been no structural repairs. There is an extremely small bubble in the poly on the top that can be seen in the last pic (It was very hard to photograph, but it’s there.) Also, it appears that the nut may have been replaced or reworked, and there are some remnants of that work on the fretboard in the first fret (see headstock pic). It does not affect the playability at all. Other than that, this guitar is in fantastic condition, and plays wonderfully! You WON’T be disappointed!
