Features

The EF508KC NEX is handcrafted in our pro series facility that has been building precision quality instruments over five decades. Beneath the impressive figured Koa is a world-class acoustic/electric guitar that will handle any application whether in a full band setting or solo performance.

Features include a fully bound body and fretboard, finished in natural gloss accentuating the exquisite grain structure of the Koa. The mahogany neck is joined to the body with a traditional, ultra strong dovetail joint. Dual action adjustable tension rod keeps the guitar playing true no matter what the environment.

Includes Takamine’s Palathetic™ pickup, known in the industry as one of the most accurate and natural sounding acoustic/electric pickups. The CT4B preamp has long been the popular choice among Takamine pro artists, providing warm natural acoustic tone at high sound pressure levels.
