      Takamine EF340SCGN Dreadnought Antique Acoustic-Electric Guitar (620237)
Availability:  


A modern classic for a nice price.

The Takamine EF340SCGN Antique Acoustic-Electric Guitar brings the build quality and performance capability of Takamine professional series guitars to a whole new level of affordability. Built on the popular cutaway dreadnought platform, this guitar starts with a solid cedar top for great warm vintage tone right out of the box.

The EF340SCGN guitar's back and sides are mahogany with multi-ply bindings on the edges to protect it from the bumps and bruises that a guitar will get from day-to-day use, especially when you are out on stage. The neck is mahogany, with a rosewood fretboard, which holds 20 highly polished nickel-silver frets. The neck is supported by a dual-action tension rod, which can be used to keep your neck in perfect relief no matter what environmental forces try to act on your Takamine guitar. The tuning machines are chrome and of the finest quality for precision tuning. At the heart of every Takamine professional series guitar is a state-of-the-art electronics system, which starts with a palathetic pickup built into the bridge, and ends with the Takamine preamp system.

The CT-4B analog solid-state preamp features three bands of EQ, and a volume control. Tone shaping is done very easily with a user-friendly graphic EQ, with bass, midrange and treble slide controls. The volume is also on a slider. Another great feature on this preamp is the built-in chromatic tuner. The tuner on button also acts as a mute control for silent onstage tuning. It is also incredibly useful for non-standard and open tunings. The EF340SCGN dreadnought cutaway guitar comes out of the box looking and feeling like a well-worn old friend. The antique stain and the light satin finish give it that pure vintage feel and vibe.

    Top: solid cedar

  • Takamine EF340scgn

    As reviewed by Gregory Ray on 2/13/2010

    This is a great guitar it is solid cedar top and solid Mahogany back and sides. This guitar sounds awesome and plays like butter. the preamp ct-4b is the same used on other takamines pro sieres. I own several acoustic and would have to say this one and my takamine cooltube stand in a class all there own. Anyone that wants great tone with solid wood for a price you can't beat this is the guitar to get. This is no cheap guitar by no means stands up to my cooltube on every note. if you are thinking about geting this guitar get it I recomend it to everyone who likes Takamine. Once again Takamine out did themselfs with this guitar and the price is a steel for this well constructed guitar. I rate it 5 stars accross the board.

  • Another wonderful Tak Product

    As reviewed by Larry on 3/18/2010

    This is my second Tak guitar, the other is a 523 series. While no mean inexpensive this guitar is priced way below what some of the other companies would charge. The sound is very different from the typical maple sides and spruce sound board guitars. It is more mellow and has deep richer tones that really come alive through my Marshall 100SD. The cedar board really makes a huge difference. The fret board is very forgiving and very playable. The electronics are top notch and work as advertised giving you many options if you want to shape your sound. Great care must be given due to the nature of the cedar. It will dent more easily than spruce but the sound is well worth the extra care. The guitar is also very stage worthy. The pics on the web-site do not do it justice. If your looking for something different, give it a try. Again another great product from Takamine and at a bargain price. I could not be happier.

  • Absolutely Perfect!

    As reviewed by mailmanrocks on 4/2/2011

    Visually-TOO EFFIN COOL.pics don't do it justice. Sonically it is a rich mellow big dreadnought tone monster. Just can't put it down. Good punch on the low end and great note definition. Been playing the hell out of it for 3 weeks now and it really stays in tune. Electronics are very good and this baby just sings through my Marshall AS50D amp. I think the amp and guitar were made to go together. Playability was very good out of the box and I will start changing strings to see what kinds of tone I can wring out of her. Best thing about this whole thing was GC.com price matched so it was less than 700. YEEEHAAAWW!! In a six months or so when it starts to open up I got a feeling this will be THE favorite of my 4 guitars.
