Brand New with Warranty. We are an authorized Takamine Dealer.
This popular NEX model is a favorite of those who prefer a gloss finish with their solid cedar tops, and sapele back and sides. The turquoise eagle 12th fret inlay pays homage to Takamine's legendary Sante Fe series.
The TSF40C includes Takamine’s proprietary CTP-3 Cool Tube™ preamp system. The dual-channel CTP-3 provides low-voltage tube tone, variable from bright and brilliant to thick and warm, three band EQ with semi-parametric midrange, auxiliary input and volume (for use when a second pickup is added), and an onboard chromatic tuner.
What Do We Think?
The cedar top and sapele back/sides lend this guitar a warm but focused midrange. The slightly “compressed” character of cedar makes the guitar ideally balanced when switching from strumming to flat picking to fingerpicking. Every note is effortless, while none spike out uninvited. Likewise, the CoolTube preamp and Palathetic pickup system produce a well-balanced tonal spectrum through an amp or PA, with a natural low end and sweet upper register.
How Does It Play?
We give a thorough setup to every instrument that comes through our shop. From truss rod to nut slots, fretwork to saddle height, you can rest assured we have this one dialed in. We also do a thorough inspection and check of all electronics and hardware to make sure nothing slips by!
