Don Felder has used a Takamine CP-132SC guitar, as he says in [this Q & A](http://www.felderfans.com/guitar-q-a-with-don/2/): "'My question involves the classical guitar you used during the “Hell Freezes Over” tour and the song “Hotel California.” I’m curious to know the make of the guitar and what strings you used for it. If you recommend any brand of strings for a classical, that would be great help too.' 'Sarah, it was a Takamine with CP-132 SC Nylon strings. As far as strings for a classical go, I’d recommend SAVAREZ.'"more
This guitar has a really nice tone. The only drawback is that it is quiet by typical classical guitar standards. Because of it's lack of projection it is easy to get buried when playing with others (like a small guitar ensemble). I primarily use my Takamine for playing wedding gigs which almost always requires the use of an amp or a small PA system. Once I am plugged in I rely heavily on the onboard parametric equalizer which enables me to make extra fine adjustments on my tone to match the surrounding environment. I play a variety of styles and this guitar is able to compliment my playing in a dynamic way.
