Features: What it does for you:
Mahogany back and sides Dry and airy tone; clear, present midrange
Bound rosewood fretboard Warm rosewood tone; beautiful binding
Solid cedar top Mellow, nuanced, responsive tone
Dreadnought body shape Traditional shape and sound; familiar feel
One of Takamine's most popular professional instruments for years running, the EF341SC dreadnought cutaway acoustic-electric guitar combines classy looks and alluring full-bodied tone. With a nod to tradition, this acoustic-electric axe offers a solid cedar top with mahogany back and sides, a sturdy mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, an attractive rosette and elegant body binding. Takamine updates the classic dreadnought with the EF341SC's Palathetic pickup and CT4B preamp with an onboard tuner. You'll get great sound from this elegant and expressive acoustic-electric -- it's proven itself to be a trusty tool for guitarists across genres.

Resounding Cedar and Mahogany Dreadnought Shaped Body

Your EF341SC comes in a nice dreadnought cutaway shape with a cedar top and mahogany back and sides. Cedar gives your playing a lush and dark tone, and your mahogany back and sides resonates a warm rich sound with a lot of body. You'll consistently get a well-rounded tone with well-balanced lows and mids.

Mahogany Neck and Bound Rosewood Fretboard

Smooth playability and lingering sustain are always at your side with your EF341SC's mahogany neck. Your notes will hold ceaselessly, and your mahogany neck offers a nice transfer of sound through to this baby's warm body. Your bound rosewood fingerboard of 20 frets is buttery and smooth to the touch, and it harnesses a comfortable and close action for your fingers to glide over in effortless speed.

Palathetic Pickup and CT4B Preamp

Capturing and projecting your playing are the EF341SC's Palathetic pickup and CT4B preamp. This pickup uses independently shielded piezo-electric transducers for each of your strings. What you get is a nice, clear, and pristine signal with every strum. Your CT4B preamp includes an onboard tuner to keep your tuning in check.

Attractive Rosette and Snowflake Inlays

Alongside the Takamine EF341SC's inviting tone are its striking looks. Your cedar-topped body has an attractive rosette with concentric rings, detailed white/black binding on the front and back, and a bound rosewood fretboard with delicate snowflake inlays.

Features:

- Dreadnought cutaway body shape
- Solid cedar topped body with mahogany back and sides

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "cant put it down!!! AMAZING action on this guitar!"
Sound: the sound is absolutely perfect.... the built in tuner gets the strings in perfect harmony with one another, better than any other tuner i have ever used! And not to mention the action on this guitar is insane! it feels like an electric! you can hammer and pull off to your hearts content without even trying. you cant go wrong with this guitar.... best acoustic i have ever heard/owned. D'darrio strings sound best on this guitar.... oh and dont forget about the amazing look/shine this guitar has with the glossy black/white enamel border/pearl type enlays. Feature: the built in mic is amazing... plug it into an accoustic amp and you sound like a god! hehe the built in tuner is verrrrrry precise aswell. couldnt ask for more Quality: one minor buzz on D string, 3rd fret... but easily avoided by putting a little more pressure. other than that, quality is amazingly high. nothing but the best from takamine... all their guitars are HAND built. Value: easily stands up to a Martin D28.... i actually like the sound more! DEFFINATLEY worth the price.... could charge $500 more and still sell the guitar. trust me, this guitar is it. Manufacturer Support: easy to get in touch with... very polite. The Wow Factor: very nice classic dred style.... white border with 3 very tiny black stripes following the border. very sharp looking guitar. Overall: love it. cant say anything more aobut it. this is the guitar to have if you cant afford to drop $4K on a martin..... absolutely amazing guitar.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
