    Default Takamine EGU-C1 Electro Acoustic Concert - REVIEW

    Another day, another ukulele from a guitar maker. Against the trend, Takamine actually get this one right!

    Nice review. I agreed on volume controls. For passive don’t bother. Keep jack and wire to under saddle short and clean. Also agree with description of Takamine in general, well built work horses. I think they’d be better served selling thru Uke stores rather than guitar stores. It may take a bit more sales work from reps but a well set up Uke by people who truly believe ukuleles are serious instruments is important. Most guitar stores, IMHO and in my observations, know very little about ukuleles, don’t do set up and sell by price. Just a general statement and observation. Nice laminate. Now checking their site to see what else they sell Uke wise. Thanks

    Yeah - agree with that. Think they are like the Fender and Gibson system - they work on bulk orders of guitars and bolt ukes on. If what I was told by a dealer about Fender, if you don’t buy guitars you can’t get ukes. Very odd.

    Shame as I think this is better than any Fender offering I’ve seen.
