The Takamine EF440SCGN NEX Antique Acoustic-Electric Guitar combines the quality and beauty of Takamine guitars with surprising affordability. The guitar is built on the NEX cutaway platform, a signature Takamine design. The top has a pleasing, rounded profile that is narrow at the waist, yet broad behind the bridge, creating a soundboard that offers a balanced frequency response with deep bass, clear treble, and a sweet, round midrange. The EF440SCGN guitar body carries the depth of a dreadnought to ensure a great level of volume.
This Takamine Guitar starts with a solid cedar top for great warm vintage tone right out of the box. The back and sides are mahogany. The tuning machines are nickel for precision tuning. And 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 CT4B analog solid-state preamp features 3 EQ bands 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 Takamine EF440SCGN NEX 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. Includes case.

Comments about Takamine EF440SCGN NEX Antique Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I've had this guitar for about 4 months now. I was looking for a guitar to use for jams when I didn't want to pull out the Taylor 814ce. I immediately liked its satin finished cedar top and mahogany sides and back and the sound projection is very good unamplified. Also like the light weight, warm tone and range of sounds when plugged into my Fishman Loudbox or Behringer PA. The girl singer in our group almost always reaches for this guitar and she owns two other Takamine's. Overall, a great choice for an acoustic electric guitar at this price ppoint.
