The Takamine TF77PT OM Body Koa Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a rich, golden hue of koa that is instantly pleasing to the eye. The physical structure of the wood presents a visual dimensionality that is found in few other timbers. These lovely aesthetics combined with exceptional sonic qualities makes koa one of the most desirable tonewoods with which to build a sweet guitar. Takamine has chosen to pay homage to this fine timber and the region from whence it comes with the creation of the EF77PT.
Built on Takamine's OM body size platform, the TF77PT unites two tonewoods that seem to know how to bring out the best in each other. Solid cedar tops and solid koa back and sides. The result from this particular combination is truly greater than the sum of the parts. The resonant properties of the koa acts on the harmonic wealth of the cedar in such a way that the low notes become more focused and articulate while the higher notes sustain with a richness and clarity that hits the ear with musical abundance.
As if the tone of thie TF77PT would not be enough to inspire extended playing sessions, Takamine chose to create a visual appeal that brings to mind the feeling of a tropical island breeze blowing gently through the palms at sunset. The 12th fret inlay is designed to create a little island paradise right in your lap. To complete the look, the soundboard is finished in a light "sunset burst' that accentuates the beauty of the high grade cedar and compliments the natural color of the koa back and sides.
The TF77PT is built for pleasure, but it is completely ready, willing and very able to get down to business with a "beyond-state-of-the-art" pickup and preamp system featuring the CTP-2 CoolTube preamp. The CTP-2 has an on-board tube preamp with bass and treble tone controls, a semi-parametric midrange, a second-source input and blend control, and a chromatic tuner.

I have owned this Takamine TF77-PT for almost a week.I picked it up the night before I was going to play at my weekly Thursday night playing at a local VFW .I had been playing every Thursday for about 7 weeks before I picked this Takamine up. Anyways the people were used to me playing my J45 Gibson it is a Koa back and sides spruce top model J45 .When I started playing the Takamine TF77-PT everyone yelled at the same time,keep playing this one it sounds better. I have to admit the pickup in the Takamine blew away the pickup in my J45 .Aas far as playing the Takamine and the Gibson just acoustically I cant really pick one over the other for better tone.The Gibson is a lot deeper and darker but it is a bigger body ,so that makes sense.The Takamine is pretty deep sounding as well especially for the smaller body,but the clarity is where the Takamine excells. The Gibson has that thuddy Gibson sound where the Takamine is ,well very clear sounding .I love having both guitars because of the tonal contrast it is a lot of fun to play one then the other.I also have a D41 Martin which again is totally different fro the Tak and the Gibson. Anyways if you like the looks of the Takamine the tone is very good,the action on mine is pretty good,needs a set up but so did my Gibson and my Martin.I played it for 2 1/2 hours without a break at the VFW ,could have played it for a couple more hours with no problem.I`mn looking forward to hearing this Tak in a few months after a lot more playing.My Martin and Gibson both improved a bunch after a few months of playing and I`m sure this Tak will too.
