The TF87PT New Yorker is handcrafted in our pro series facility that has been building precision quality instruments over five decades. This diminutive sized model matches a solid cedar top to solid Hawaiian Koa back and sides to create an articulate voice that is well suited to delta blues or ragtime styles. The finish is a gloss sunset burst and the 12th fret is adorned with a sun setting behind a palm tree on a deserted island. A slotted headstock gives the guitar a classic look and increases the break angle of the strings over the nut. Features a fully bound body and fretboard. The mahogany neck is joined to the body with a traditional, ultra strong dovetail joint. Includes Takamine’s Palathetic™ pickup, known in the industry as one of the most accurate and natural sounding acoustic/electric pickups. The electronic performance package is beyond state of the art with the Cool Tube® Preamp – the first and only tube preamp in an acoustic guitar.
