Overview

The EF261SAN's very stylish looks come from its unique FXC body shape, mahogany back and sides, rosewood fretboard and chrome tuners. Its unbelievable tone emanates from the solid cedar top and custom CTFB II electronics.

The EF261SAN is handcrafted in Takamine's Pro Series facility where they've been building precision-quality instruments over five decades. Due to its diminutive size and playability, the EF261SAN is ideal for electric players that need to switch back and forth on stage. The solid cedar top, finished in a gloss antique stain, gives this model a depth of tone unexpected from a smaller sized guitar. It includes Takamine’s Palathetic pickup, known in the industry as one of the most accurate and natural sounding acoustic/electric pickups. The CT4B II preamp has long been the popular choice among Takamine pro artists, providing warm natural acoustic tone at high sound pressure levels.

Case sold separately.

EF 261 great sounding acoustic

By Steve

from Bklyn, NY

Comments about Takamine EF261SAN Acoustic Guitar:

The EF 261 sounds like no other acoustic I've played. Plays really well too but what else would you expect from Takamine. I coupled this up with a BBE Sonic Maximizer and I couldn't stop playing it. I usually plug it in when I play it because it just sounds so good amplified. Not that it doesn't sound good unplugged but it the pre amp really sings.

EF261SAN

By Sky

Comments about Takamine EF261SAN Acoustic Guitar:

I had this guitar for a little over 2 years now and it plays great the moment i picked it up until now...i had no trouble with this guitar and the sound quality is great..nice warm tone that really brings out the bass and midrange voice this guitar sings...nice FXC body shape which feels really comfortable playing sitting down or standing up...the neck is small and the strings are close to enable less stress on the fingers..overall i enjoy playing this guitar.

    Comments about Takamine EF261SAN Acoustic Guitar:

    This was my third Takamine purchase in 12 years. I still own and play my first Takamine regularly and love the feel and the rich, mellow sound, from the solid cedar top. My second and third guitars have not disappointed in this regard. The only thing that has disappointed me has been that EF 261 was billed as "satin" which I assumed meant the finish. "Satin" must mean something else, because it came with a "gloss" finish, unlike my other cedar top.
