With their balanced tone, warm sound and comfortable size the Noveau and Santa Fe are a consistent favorite of players who also sing. Our Santa Fe Series is inspired by the designs and sounds of the desert Southwest. Its intricate inlays are perfectly executed and the tone is as wide as the horizon.
The all Koa grand auditorium sized EF508KC is the guitar for players that demand superb playability, natural acoustic tone at high sound pressure levels and stunning good looks in a road worthy performance guitar. Beneath the impressive figured Koa is a world-class acoustic electric guitar that will handle any application whether in a full band setting or solo performance. The Takamine Palethetic pickup and CT4B three band graphic preamp with tuner delivers all the tone you are looking for no matter what your playing style.
At the heart of this Takamine is its CT4B electronics section. The CT4B preamp is designed for ease of use and purity of tone. It consists of three bands of graphic EQ tone control, a volume control slider, and a built-in chromatic tuner. The desired tone is dialed in by using sliders to add or subtract frequency response as desired. The built-in chromatic tuner is extremely accurate, very easy to use, and capable of being calibrated to frequencies other than standard A440, so your Takamine EF508KC guitar will stay in key, whatever that key happens to be. To facilitate silent on-stage tuning, the tuner's power button acts as a mute switch when the guitar is amplified.
