Try price matching to Musician's Friend with their 150% price match guarantee. I haven't tried it on this deal but did with a Les Paul deal about a month ago and it worked great. If it works for this guitar, you'll get it at this price, plus they'll send you a $100 gift card (they give 50% of the difference up to $100, and their price is currently $1000).
Don't let the price fool you here - this is an entry level guitar. The back and sides are made of nato wood, which is a porous wood out of south east Asia. The top is cedar, which is such a bright wood that it is generally reserved for individuals that do a lot of finger picking. People who are just learning are going to tend to be heavy handed with their pick, which doesn't mix well with a cedar top.
This said, Takamine does have good electronics and if you wanted to use this on stage and run it through good equipment it would probably be fine for that, but many guitars between 600-1000 can operate in this manner - making this a -eh- deal IMO.
