Takamine EF75MTT MIJ Orchestra Acoustic-Electric Guitar w/ Case (1 of 100 Made)
Takamine EF75MTT MIJ Acoustic-Electric Guitar w/ Case
Every company has guitars that acheive legendary status. From 2006-2008, Takamine produced the EF75S, an OM guitar with AAA Sitka spruce top, and Brazilian rosewood back and sides. Only about 80 were produced, and they have been sought-after ever since. For 2017, Takamine brings this thunderous instrument back with the EF75M TT. It is similar to it’s predecessor in appointments, but utilizes a "Thermal" heat-treated spruce top, and ultra-rare Madagascar rosewood. The guitar has beautiful abalone purfling and flame maple binding. Truly a breathtaking instrument with wonderful sweet, balanced tone. The guitar incorporates Takamine’s stealthy TLD 2 Line Driver electronics for great, natural stage sound. This guitar is pure magic—you just can’t put it down.
Limited to 100 pieces worldwide.
The Takamine line driver preamp (TLD-2) is a simple circuit designed to buffer the pickup and boost the current of the signal to eliminate any degradation with long cables. It is clean and quiet with a minimal amount of wiring and is discreetly mounted within the output jack assembly providing no outward sign of onboard electronics. The TLD-2 does have three simple tone shaping controls if you care to extract and tinker. But you are likely to find the preset TLD-2, combined with their renowned Palathetic pickup, as Takamine’s warmest and most natural acoustic – electric tone yet.
