Thanks to Takamine’s Thermal Top technology, the EF340S TT looks, feels, and sounds like a vintage guitar. To achieve this, the EF340S TT’s solid spruce top was baked in a controlled high-heat, low-oxygen environment. The EF340S TT provides you with the magical experience of a vintage guitar in a brand-new instrument.
Dreadnought body provides a loud, bold, resonant tone
One of the most common styles of acoustic guitars, the dreadnought body is relatively large, resulting in a bold and often loud tone. With square shoulders and a square bottom, dreadnought guitars have enjoyed particular success among folk and bluegrass musicians due to the dreadnought’s rich, resonant quality. Pretty much the standard shape for flatpickers, dreadnoughts not only produce exceptional deep tones, they’re also known for their articulation and all-around balanced sound.
TLD-2 preamp delivers natural acoustic tone onstage
The Takamine EF340S TT features an LTD-2 line driver preamp, which consists of a simple circuit that buffers the pickup and boosts your signal. This prevents the sonic degradation that frequently occurs with long cable runs. This discreetly mounted preamp is virtually invisible, with no outward sign of onboard electronics. Combined with a Palathetic pickup, the LTD-2 sounds phenomenal with no tweaking; however, three small controls for bass, mid, and treble are accessible by removing the guitar’s input jack. The organic transparency of this preamp is astounding.
Takamine produces guitars of amazing quality, sound, and playability
The Takamine EF340S TT benefits from a half century of Takamine guitar-crafting know-how. Launched in 1962 at the foot of Japan’s Takamine mountains, Takamine has been designing and building acoustic guitars that are seen in the hands of some of music’s biggest stars, including Glenn Frey, Bruce Springsteen, Bruno Mars, and Toby Keith. With quality and value as guiding principles, Takamine’s instruments employ the finest tonewoods and construction techniques – something you’ll discover for yourself as soon as you pick up your EF340S TT for the first time.
