I'm buying a new guitar and there is a body style that I really enjoyed playing.

It says it is an FX style body, do any of you know other guys that also have this body style?

I've no idea what an FX style body is, it seems to be Takamine's jargon.

My advice for buying a guitar is to try it out in person in a shop. Get a feel of how easy it is to push the strings down, whether it sits comfortably in your lap/on a strap. And listen to the individual tone; just see if you personally like it. Some people prefer a brighter sound and some prefer more bass, it's up to you.

I did try it out in the shop and I liked it, the only problem was that it is acoustic electric and I don't particularly want that. I simply want acoustic.

Hmmmm looking at takamine's website it doesn't seem that there is a direct acoustic version of the EG561 (which would logically be G561, the E signifying electro-acoustic)

However, they do seem to have this: which looks exactly the same but without the electrics, so that one is called G260C-BL (BL signifying black) only difference seems to be the woods used for the back and sides. This one uses mahogany while the electro has nato. Never heard of nato so I'm not sure of its sound qualities. mahogany should still give you a very nice sound :)

Thanks! I really like that, actually that is exactly what I'm looking for, to be honest all I'm looking for is a guitar with a decent sound and one that doesn't have to be tuned every 10 minutes. I fell in love with that body style though. I don't want to spend too much money on another guitar since I have one now that I never play and it cost me $500. I don't play as often anymore.
