Reason: NEW LOWER PRICE
I bought one a few years ago from MF/GC. The wood and finish was beautiful and well built, but that's about it. Even after a setup and string change, acoustically, it was very thin and not balanced-even for a small body guitar. Also the built-in tuner was slow and inaccurate. I really wanted to like this guitar for it's solid top and size, but now it stays in the case. Also, this site isn't an authorized seller, so no warranty from takamine.
I own 2 Takamine guitars and love them, even though my go to guitar is still my Taylor. That being said, I don't know if I've ever tried this exact model but I personally would never buy a guitar without playing it first.
... Also, this site isn't an authorized seller, so no warranty from takamine.
This is something to think about. Also their return policy is only 14 days. Not all guitars are equal in a production run, sometimes a few bad apples slip through QC. Just my opinion, but it is best to play a guitar before buying it, or at least make sure that you are protected with a warranty and decent return policy.

By the way, Oregon is awesome. Supremely beautiful and NO sales tax!
....since I wasn't biting on the $47 shipping from Hello Music, I went to look at Awesome musician deals and they're now selling it for $250 FREE shipping- no coupon/promo needed, so I ordered one.
THANKS guys- my wife Christmas gift is now bought!
