Takamine G Series EG416S New Yorker Acoustic-Electric Guitar
The Takamine EG416S New Yorker Acoustic-Electric Gutiar is an example of a body style and a particular tone wood coming together so perfectly that you would think they were made for each other.
The smallest profile Takamine, the New Yorker is a traditional old-time guitar shape that produces an immediate, clear, full-bodied tone that evokes the old 78-rpm records of the 1940s. The Takamine New Yorker guitar's strumming voice is sharp and airy. When played finger-style the New Yorker sings with sweetness and character that makes you want to dig a little deeper into the roots of American music.
The EG416S New Yorker guitar combines rosewood sides and a 3-piece rosewood/maple back with the balance and clarity of a solid spruce top. This combination produces a voice rich beyond it's diminutive size. The mahogany neck and rosewood bridge and fretboard provide clarity and lasting sustain, with strength and beauty. The 1-11/16" nut width and symmetrical neck provides comfort for dancing across the guitar's 20 frets. At the heart of the guitar is the intuitive TP4T electronics system, an easy to use preamp featuring a 3-band graphic EQ, and a built-in tuner.
The TP4T preamplifier found on Takamine G-Series guitars offers a gain knob, a tuner, an active shelving system EQ with bass, middle, and treble frequency slider controls, and a low battery light. The preamp is switched on by plugging a standard 1/4" instrument cable into the endpin/strap pin jack. Unplugging the cable switches the preamplifier off. The TP4T Preamplifier is powered by a single 9-volt battery.
Never one to be left at home when there is music to be made, the EF416S-VS is stage and studio ready, with plenty of beautiful appointments, such as abalone inlays, abalone rosette, chrome tuners with black knobs, gold hardware, and a beautiful vintage sunburst gloss finish.
