Please be aware that this product is so very special it takes a YEAR to get to you! This is because once you have ordered it the craftsmen at Takamine make it especially for you! Please do order one, but be aware of the timescale when you do, you will not regret the wait! The voice of true vintage, played-in tone is yours from the first note with the EF450C-TT. The pre-aged properties of the Takamine Solid ‘Thermal Top’ with Solid Flamed Maple back and Flamed Maple sides deliver an extra measure of low-end horsepower with this classic cutaway NEX. White binding and decorative pick guard appropriately accentuate the wide-open vintage tone of this killer instrument. Add Takamine’s critically acclaimed ‘Palathetic Pickup’ and the stealth 'TLD-2' line driver preamp, and you own an acoustic guitar with the sound you’ve always dreamed of with electronics that can accurately translate to an audience of fifty or fifty thousand.
