The EF261S is ideal for electric players that need to switch back and forth on stage. The solid cedar top, finished in a gloss antique stain, gives this model a depth of tone unexpected from a smaller sized guitar. It has mahogany back and sides and Rosewood fingerboard. It is very close to the traditional Grand Concert proportions. Excellent feedback control with a true and warm acoustic tone.This model includes Takamine’s Palathetic™ pickup, known in the industry as one of the most accurate and natural sounding acoustic/electric pickups. The CT4B preamp has long been the popular choice among Takamine pro artists, providing warm natural acoustic tone at high sound pressure levels.
