The Takamine EF381SC 12-string acoustic electric guitar is handcrafted in Japan by skilled craftsman. It's part of the Pro Series, built on the foundation of the Takamine brand.
It features a cutaway dreadnought body with a solid Spruce top and laminated Maple back and sides. The traditional feel Mahogany neck has a 20 fret bound Rosewood fingerboard with delicate snowflake inlays, and has a comfortable feel with easy and accurate fretting. The solid Spruce top in combination with Maple back and sides produces a warm, mellow tone, with the bell-like quality you expect from a 12-string guitar.
Electronics in the EF381SC include a Takamine CT4BII preamp with built-in tuner and Palathetic pickup. Available controls include: volume, three-band EQ, mid contour switch, notch filter, and EQ bypass. The 3 band equilization provides control over the bass, midrange and treble frequencies. The tuner on/off button also acts as a mute switch for onstage use, and turns off automatically after a few minutes.
The Takamine Palathetic pickup uses individually shielded piezo-electric elements. These pickup elements make direct contact with the saddle creating a sonic connection with the strings, resulting in a sound with rich harmonics and authentic acoustic guitar tone. The Palathetic pickup system is one of the many reasons professionals play Takamine guitars.
The neck on the EF381SC has an asymmetrical C shape, with a contour slightly thinner on the bass side so that it fits the natural shape of your hand. Itís thin from front to back and medium in width, with a gentle fingerboard arch. The X braced solid Spruce top is voiced by hand, which can make a significant difference in volume, balance and tone.
