    takamine?

    EDIT: nevermind, noticed the inside label. NICE!
     
  3. Yep model EG512CFG according to the sticker

    can't say i'm a huge fan of the pre-amp, but it is very loud unplugged, and plays better than any acoustic i have encountered as of yet, and at that price i simply couldn't pass it up!
     
  4. That's a $630.00 bass new!
     
  5. also one of the reasons i couldn't pass it up...lol

    I like my Takamine - it's great for working out songs without an amp, and playing acoustically with friends at home and on vacation, but I'm not fond of the strings; too zingy, and lacking on bottom.

    What kind of strings are you using?

    If a fellow TBer has tried using a soundhole plug to eliminate feedback when playing amplified, how'd it work for you?
     
  11. I find I need a plug when I am playing with the amp right behind me. It feeds back.

    As you turn up the amp, the feedback gets worse unless you use the plug.
