Takamine press release
Designed in cooperation with the top-selling country superstar and crafted to his exacting specs.
Based on his longtime workhorse acoustic, the Takamine TF250SMCSB, it features a full-sounding jumbo body with a convenient cutaway, solid spruce top with scalloped "X" bracing, and beautiful flame maple back and sides.
In Keith's own personal touch, the EF250TK also features his signature on the heel cap and his silhouette image on a special headstock medallion.
Other premium features include a mahogany neck, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with abalone/mother of pearl inlays and bone nut, gold tuners and hardware, and elegant gloss sunburst neck and body finish. The rosewood bridge has a split bone saddle for accurate intonation, and its pinless design makes string changes a breeze. For peerless amplified performance, the EF250TK is equipped with Takamine's Palathetic® under-saddle pickup and the highly acclaimed CT4B II preamp system with three-band EQ, volume control and built-in tuner. Deluxe hard-shell case included.
