Subject: RE: Small Guitars?
Hi all you experts,
I am a learner guitar player,my wife bought me a Takamini for when we go camping and it is great imho.
i takes normal strings is not any more difficult to play than my full size electro accoustic and has been to work with me on many occasions and so I know I can sit behaind the whell of a car or van and practice the three chords i have learned.
Mine is an accoustic one but they do them with electrics too.
Fretboard /neck are narrow which I prefer and the sound is just smaller than a full size. I have fitted 12 guage to it and that has bumped up the bass end a deal and given the whole a better balance.
Anyone else tried a Takamini?
Greetings from the UK
Incidently I live in a town near Scunthorpe and the strummer guy and his strummers are well made and quite popular around here.
