Koa looks and great koa tone
Koa looks beautiful - there's no denying that. But when it comes to tone it's hard to come by another wood more balanced for response and fullness of sound. The EF508KC body is constructed completely of superior figured koa, giving you a guitar that will play and age consistently throughout its life. The mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard give you a smooth and precise fretting surface while producing full, enveloping sustain.
True Takamine quality keeps you playing
Based on traditional guitar-building techniques, Takamine has been handcrafting acoustic guitars like the EF508KC for over 50 years. Using dovetail neck joints and scalloped X-bracing for tone and structural integrity has earned the company a reputation for building guitars that last a lifetime. Innovations in pickups for acoustic guitars have furthered that reputation and made their guitars a favorite with pro players like Garth Brooks and Glen Frey, both of whom have signature model Takamine acoustic guitars.
CT4B II preamp system gets you heard
The EF508KC is outfitted with Takamine's CT4B II preamp system with a 3-band EQ for tone shaping, tuning, and using their proprietary Palathetic pickup. Designed with one, individually shielded piezo-electric element per string, each element is attached to the guitar's top and bridge. With 12 times the mass of most pickups, these elements pick up broader frequency and dynamic ranges and are designed to touch the saddle to pick up a blend of the string and the resonance of the soundboard providing accurate and complete tone even when you're playing your hardest. And since you're buying your new Takamine from AudioBuy.com.au Australia's Guitar Gallery, you know the electronics have been tested and will be working for you right out of the box.
