Takamine Guitars: Jasmine NEX Cutaway S34CFM
by Guitar Guru
“Cheapest Solid Spruce Top Guitar”
Seeking a true quality guitar at a cheap price, e.g. less than $200? Wanting a full sound but not too large a guitar? Look no further … The Jasmine NEX Cutaway S34CFM sports a solid spruce top
, enabling great resonance. The “NEX” guitar body is a scaled-down version of a Jumbo, giving the feel of a small-bodied guitar with the unexpected benefit of great projection.
More specifically, the S34CFM has a rounded profile, but is narrow in the waist and broad across the bridge. This combination gives the S34CFM a full, balanced sound expected from a larger guitar, and lends itself well to pick or finger-style players.
With a flamed maple body, solid spruce top, rosewood bridge and fretboard, a mahogany neck, chrome tuners and hardware and a soft satin finish, the S34CFM not only sounds awesome, but manages to look beautiful at the same time. It is highly recommended for not only beginning guitar players, but for more advanced musicians as well. In fact, for the professional musician, the S34CFM provides an excellent working instrument that will hold up well even under strenuous conditions.
While some adjustments may need to be made to the strings to avoid buzzing, with fine-tuning and the right strings, the S34CFM will provide the player with better resonance than most guitars in this price range.
What is the difference between the Jasmine NEX Cutaway S34CFM and the S34C? The S34CFM (note the FM) has a "flame maple" body and headstock.
