Brand New with Warranty. We are an authorized Takamine Dealer.
The TSF48C Santa Fe NEX is handcrafted in our pro series facility that has been building precision quality instruments over five decades. The solid spruce top is matched with a solid rosewood back for excellent projection, power and broad dynamic range. The theme is southwest Native American, with a black crow rosette, eagle fingerboard inlays, gloss natural finish and gold with amber pearl key tuners.
Features a fully bound body and fretboard. The mahogany neck is joined to the body with a traditional, ultra strong dovetail joint. Includes Takamine's proprietary CTP-3 CoolTube preamp system paired with the unique Palathetic™ under-saddle pickup for peerless amplified response.
What Does Josh Think?
In my time as a live sound engineer, I have found the CoolTube preamp to be one of the easiest acoustic preamps to work with. Even with established Nashville writers and artists, you never quite know what you’re going to get when an acoustic guitar is first plugged in. Some pickups and preamps subdue desired frequencies or over-emphasize undesirable ones. Takamine guitars equipped with the CoolTube and Palathetic system have presented a well-balanced tonal spectrum with a warm midrange, natural low end and sweet trebles.
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!
