The guitars created in Takamine Specialty Shop are very limited production models showing design elements that appear nowhere else in the Takamine line. Every so often we get the opportunity to acquire some exquisite examples of rare and valuable tone woods. These timbers are so unique they deserve an extraordinary guitar to show off their natural brilliance. The EF77 OM was created to look as amazing as it sounds. Hawaiian Koa was chosen for its superior resonance, luscious golden hue and visually stunning grain structure. The solid Hawaiian Koa top, back and sides has a unique voice that displays excellent fundamental and extended sustain. The look is ultra deluxe with genuine abalone rosette, purfling and fretboard inlay. The 12th fret is adorned with an abalone hibiscus flower. Gloss Natural finish accentuates the stunning grain structure of the Koa. Includes Takamine’s Palathetic™ pickup, known in the industry as one of the most accurate and natural sounding acoustic/electric pickups. Takamine’s TLD Line Driver provides the player with an active output.
