The EC132C is handcrafted in our pro series facility that has been building precision quality instruments over five decades. This nylon string classical guitar pays homage to traditional classical instruments and follows closely to the original drawings of Antonio Torres. The spruce top is supported by traditional ladder bracing and produces a warm tone and plenty of dynamic range. The mahogany neck features a dual action truss rod, which keeps the guitar playing perfectly in any environment. The rosewood back and sides aid in projection. Gloss natural finish provides durability and adds to the beauty of the 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.
