Takamine EF381SC 12-string acoustic Black?
Special Cutaway Design in a Classic Takamine 12-String Dreadnought
Here's one of those little bits of guitar trivia that never fails to surprise people when you spring it at them: Takimine guitars are actually named after the Takamine Mountains in Sakashita, Japan. It's at the base of these mountains that Takamine guitars have been built for over 40 years! What began as a small family business has evolved into one of the leading guitar manufacturers in the world. The company opened its doors while guitar playing was gaining popularity in Japan during the early 60's. As business grew, the owners saw the need to develop their skills and attract design and manufacturing talent. One of the most important additions to the company was Mass Hirade, who joined Takamine in 1968 and made great improvements to the design and build quality. The EF381SC is in the company's Keystone Series and is a beautiful example of Takamine's commitment to building the highest quality guitars that still come with reasonable price tags. For superior tone, it has a solid spruce top and the time-tested formula of maple back and sides with a solid mahogany neck.
