The EF381SC 12-string dreadnought is handcrafted in Takamine's pro series facility that has been building precision quality instruments over five decades. The versatility of this guitar begins with its solid cedar top that can play sweet mellow passages or power chords with equal ability.

The maple back and sides are a perfect reflector for the tone generated by the soundboard and the gloss black finish looks great under the stage lights. The mahogany neck is joined to the body with a traditional, ultra-strong dovetail joint.

Includes Takamine's CT4B II preamp system paired with the unique Palathetic under-saddle pickup for peerless amplified response. The highly acclaimed CT4B II preamp system with three-band EQ, volume control and built-in tuner.

This is a great sounding instrument. I would be hard pressed to find a guitar that projects better than this baby. The neck is a breeze to play. I’ve always heard that 12 strings are hard to tune and keep in tune. Not so with this one. I tuned it over a month ago and have not tuned it since. The built in tuner is a great tool also as is the built in preamp. I really have nothing bad to say about this instrument. This is my first Takemine and I can assure you, it won’t be the last.

Musical Background:

I’ve been playing for 45 years and mostly jam at home now. I play 6 and 12 string guitar as well as bass guitar.

Musical Style:

I play all styles of music including Rock, blues, country and gospel.
