Comfortable body size, unique tonewoods, vintage vibe, and state-of-the-art preamp.
The Takamine G Series EG630S New Yorker Acoustic-Electric Guitar rides the wave of popularity that small-bodied guitars are enjoying. Most players have a dreadnought or a larger bodied guitar and a New Yorker body would make an interesting and unique addition to their guitar arsenal.
This Takamine EG630S New Yorker has a classic; "antique" appeal that is evocative of guitars made and played in the 1920s.
For the EG630S, Takamine chose a solid red cedar soundboard, which compliments the small body very well. Cedar responds well to a light touch and produces a very warm and harmonically rich tone even with such a diminutive soundboard.
The back and sides are a very special flamed mahogany. This rare and unique tonewood is chosen for its stunning visual appeal and is sure to inspire many hours of playtime.
And to top off the "vintage" vibe, Takamine has for the very first time created a steel string G Series guitar with a slotted headstock. The look of the headstock is pure tradition and the gold and ivory tuners finish off the classic character of the instrument.
The "vintage violin" finish evokes Images from the past. It is possible to imagine this guitar in the hands of some "bluesman" in an old photograph.
The decades-old design notwithstanding, this is a totally modern performance instrument fully equipped with a state-of-the-art electronic system featuring the TP4T preamp with 3 Band Graphic EQ and built-in tuner.
