Takamine G series has the role of the budget friendly section of the Takamine catalog. It contains all of the models and shapes from the main series, but made with beginning and financially struggling musicians in mind. GS330S starts off with a cedar top and nato back and sides. This non-cutaway dreadnought model comes in a natural satin finish with multi-ply top binding. The rosewood bridge has a belly shape and black pins. The GS330S has a double circle sound hole rosette. The neck on this model is joined to the body via the dovetail joint which is positioned at the 14th fret. The fingerboard is made of rosewood and features 20 frets, no position inlays and 1.65" wide string nut. The MSRP for this model is set at $459.

This guitar is the BEST lower-end guitar that Takamine makes in terms of quality, sound, and playability. In fact, it's built surprisingly well, easy to play, and stays in tune. And mine doesn't smell like 'glue', like others have complained about. It has a strong bass response but doesn't drown out the mids & highs. It actually has a pretty decently balanced-sound for a dreadnought of this price. Finger-style picking sounds great on this guitar, and strumming sounds best if not 'attacked' aggressively. Although it is a laminate-bodied guitar (and in spite of what some might say) this guitar DOES have very good sustain, and DOES open up quite nicely. I seem to play this guitar more than than the others I have because it's got a fast satin neck, is easy to play, and really does sound good. I've tried every kind of steel string on this guitar, and to me it seems to respond, and sound best with D'Addario Phosphor Bronze 12's. (Coated strings seem to take away from the tone somewhat, kind of "dulling" it). The only possible improvement I see would be to replace the bridge pins (if you have the one with pins)with Rosewood pins, change out the saddle to bone....and, add a pick guard because cedar is incredibly soft, and dings & scratches without any effort at all. Other than that, this guitar is great just the way it is. This model, although discontinued for a while, there are some still available. If you can't afford much, but want more than what your getting for your money....this particular guitar fits that bill.
