Hi Folks, In a nutshell, I'm wondering how far does the Takamine G series punch above it's weight... would you guys say as high as the Taylor 114e? If so, I can save some money. Just sold a Martin DX HPL dred as I'm looking for something a little brighter for finger style. I tried a friend's G series Takamine at the weekend (not sure which model) and liked it a lot. Sweet, 'zingy' (or 'lush', if that's not a bad description) and also full-bodied. I also liked the neck more than my Martin. I bought the Martin, cuz I just had to have a Martin, but now I realise that while it's an okay guitar, there are other options in the price range and I no longer have that Martin GAS. I have the cash for a new or used Taylor 114e, but wonder if I'm wasting my money when the Takamine G series is just as nice. I am an average player and this is just for home use. I'm open-minded, so all opinions and options (up to £650.00) are welcome.
