The Takamine G NEX EG440CS Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a flamed maple top and a pleasing, rounded profile that's narrow at the waist, yet broad behind the bridge. The Takamine signature NEX guitar design creates a soundboard that offers a balanced frequency response with deep bass, clear treble, and a sweet, round midrange that projects quite well.
The body carries the depth of a dreadnought to ensure a great level of volume. The guitar's cutaway provides plenty of range and comfort when accessing the upper-register frets. The flamed maple top, back, and sides offer full tone, clear projection, and a gorgeous look. The dovetail neck joint, rosewood bridge and fretboard, and mahogany neck offer plenty of sustain. An asymmetrical neck and 1-5/8" nut width provide comfort for intricate fretboard movements.
At the heart of the Takamine NEX guitar is an impressive electronics system amplifying your sound with intuitive frequency controls. The Takamine TP4T Preamplifier features a gain knob; tuner; 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" mono 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.
The G NEX flame maple's chrome hardware, chrome tuners, and gloss finish add a striking touch to the already beautiful Takamine EG440CS acoustic-electric.
