My thoughts.
You get what you pay for.

If your budget is tight and you eye for Tagima, go for it. It doesn't matter. No one will judge you about your purchase. Just remind yourself that this guitar needs some more work so that it will perform well.
But if you can stretch your budget, go for MIJ Fenders. The build quality is topnotch and most probably, no need for setup.

Same thoughts about SX. SX have some tuning issues AFAIK. Not only the frets are not leveled properly but also the tuning machines are not stable.
Sa pinipig, bukod sa pwede mo singhutin, pwede mo rin tikman.

compared to other lower tier, budget friendly guitars. sulit na yan lalo na kung galing sa gp(they setup the guitars for free, afaik).

tama. ang maganda sa GP bibigay nila yung unit na okay na, madali naman sila kausap eh and madami ka pang ibang options dun pag nasa HQ kana, just give them a
heads up na mag try ka din ng ibang units / models

+1. handselected na usually yung mga units. they wont sell something that isn't playable as it will ruin their rep.

isa pa, the TAGIMAs I tested in GP alongside psychic_sushi were really great guitars. mejo nagas nga ako dun sa surf green eh. hahahaha

Ok yang Tagima. Kapresyo lang sya ng mga SX at Fernando sa JB dahil mahal magtinda ang JB. Kung JB nagcarry ng Tagima dito baka 15k pa yan. Hahaha. Go for it!

Just upping this thread as Im thinking of getting one and I have a few questions for those who owns or owned one.

1. How does it sound on stock parts?

2. Did you have any issues? (like parts, the wood, electronics or the overall built).

3. Is it better than a bnew Squire or other strats of the same price range?

4. What upgrades have you done and how much did it improve the sound?

Thanks sa mga sasagot.

my personal answers to your questions above, based on intensive testing instances.


1. How does it sound on stock parts?
pretty good. the strat shaped guitar will sound like a strat. and tele, a tele.
on a strat benchmark, for me, its on the borderline, good sounding. kinda like a Squier CV.

2. Did you have any issues? (like parts, the wood, electronics or the overall built).
the ones I have tried, no issues so far. if you're getting from GP, they make sure that what they sell do not have issues. so, buy with confidence.


3. Is it better than a bnew Squire or other strats of the same price range?
For me, it is way better than the guitars in its range. i.e. Sx, Fernando, MIC Tokais, MIC Bullet/Vintage Modified  Squiers. I would say, a ballpark comparison would be the Squier Classic Vibe. you definitely feel that premium, but still, not quite a fender.


4. What upgrades have you done and how much did it improve the sound?
all of the TAGIMA's I've tried were stock, but with any guitar, I would have the nut replaced immediately with a Graphtech nut and better caps and pots.

pickup replacements will vary per user. what sounds good for me might not sound good for you.

at the end of the day, I believe, Tone is in the Amp :)

Ok yung Tagima. Kung hindi ka satisfied sa tunog ng stock specs, you can always mod it.  :)
