The EF261SAN is handcrafted in our pro series facility that has been building precision quality instruments over five decades. Due to its diminutive small size and playability, this model is ideal for electric players that need to switch back and forth on stage. The solid cedar top, finished in gloss black, gives this model a depth of tone unexpected from a smaller sized guitar. 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.
