Takamine TAN16C is a great solid-wood acoustic guitar with great electronics

Takamine TAN16C

It could not say Takamine TAN16C was one of the easiest acoustic guitar to play. It comes with big body, thick neck, and the bridge set-up is a little hard to work with. Anyway, sound of Takamine TAN16C was incredibly excellent! The Takamine 16C has a well-balanced tone when both plugged and unplugged, and good sustain. The CoolTube tube sounds excellent live and records well also.
