The feel of a small-bodied guitar with impressive performance.
Built on Takamine's signature NEX design, the EG481SCX acoustic-electric guitar sports a top with a pleasing, rounded profile that is narrow at the waist, yet broad behind the bridge, creating a soundboard that offers a balanced response with deep bass, clear treble, and a sweet, round midrange that projects well. The solid spruce top offers balanced tone, while the mahogany body brings out full projection. The Takamine guitar's dovetail neck joint, rosewood bridge and fretboard, and mahogany neck offer plenty of sustain, and the asymmetrical neck and 1-5/8" nut width provide comfort for intricate fretboard movements.
At the heart of this Takamine G NEX acoustic guitar is an impressive electronics system, letting you amplify your sound with intuitive frequency controls. The CP-100 pickup is an innovative pickup design over the conventional under the saddle piezo design. It uses a U-shaped aluminum rail, securing the pickup and saddle for a snug fit and balanced response from the instrument, not just pressure on the strings. The Takamine TP4T preamplifier features a gain knob; a tuner; an active shelving system EQ with bass, middle, and treble frequency slider controls; and a low battery light.
The Takamine EG481SCX guitar's gold hardware, gold and amber pearl tuners, and gloss black finish adds a striking touch to this already beautiful instrument.
