BTW - I lied, I have an AN10. (Not sure why I thought it was a G-series) I love it! Jerry Garcia played Takamine's when he did a lot of his acoustic work with Grisman and the Dead.
It is very resonant and bassey. Nice n' loud. Of course, with no finish you have to be very careful about scratches, but I think it allows a truer sound. There is no pick guard either, but it is really sharp looking.
These pics aren't mine, but this is what it looks like.
