Features

The TSF48C Santa Fe NEX is handcrafted in our pro series facility that has been building precision quality instruments over five decades. The solid spruce top is matched with a solid rosewood back for excellent projection, power and broad dynamic range.

The theme is southwest Native American, with a black crow rosette, eagle fingerboard inlays, gloss natural finish and gold with amber pearl key tuners. 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.
