Takamine Guitars are crafted from the finest handpicked tonewoods, hand-crafted by expert luthiers, all providing players with an unmatched excellence and surprising affordability.
The Takamine EG523SC-12 Jumbo 12-String Acoustic Electric Guitar sounds great plugged in or unplugged. Jumbo body style provides a cool profile, comfortable playing, and a huge solid spruce soundboard for big volume and titanic tone. Glowing, gorgeous flamed maple back and sides plus an abalone rosette make this guitar flash fantastically in stage lights. Active electronics with onboard EQ translate all that tone into the electrical world with total fidelity.
The Takamine TK40 Preamplifier found on G-Series guitars features volume control, bass, middle and treble frequency slider controls, EQ bypass, a Notch Filter, Tuner and a Mid Contour Switch. The preamp is switched on by plugging a standard 1/4" mono instrument cable into the endpin strap pin/jack.
