I have both these guitars & frankly, this isn’t really a totally fair comparison. However, Guild all the way if you’ve bought a 12 for the reasons most buy them. The jangle of the Guild cannot be matched by any other! Period. Nor can the sustain or loudness without amplification. Plus the neck is much nicer to play on the Guild.

Very clickbait. Not a good comparison at all.

Terry Carter Music, did I miss it or did you not talk prices ?

How is this a balanced comparison?? While the 2 Guitars may have Sitka Spruce over Maple Construction, you’re comparing a Takamine G Series Dreadnought worth $950 to a Guild Jumbo that $4100 all day long with Solid Wood construction, Ebony Fingerboard, and Bone Nut and Saddle. If you want a more balanced comparison, go with a Takamine TF250S or Takamine AJ250S…since those 2 guitars are no longer in production, how about a Takamine EF250TK ($3500) for an Apples to Apples Comparison…even a Takamine G Series GJ72CE-12 would have been at least a similar basic body style and tone wood selection…I understand you’re trying to sell Guitars, but it comes across as you being seriously lacking about Guitar Body styles and Quality of Construction. Do better!!

I would have expected a F400 12 Takamine for this comparison. The ‘G’ series, while good, is a, shall we say, step down from the F series. My 1977 F400 still sounds as rich and sweet as it ever did… just an opinion.
