The EF350SMCSB dreadnought is handcrafted in our pro series facility that has been building precision quality instruments over five decades. This old school sunburst dreadnought features a solid spruce top and maple back and sides for a very bright and punchy sound with plenty of cut to rise above the band. The maple 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 CT4B preamp has long been the popular choice among Takamine pro artists, providing warm natural acoustic tone at high sound pressure levels.
