With a solid Sitka spruce top and CT-FB pickup system.
The ESN40C Acoustic - Electric NEX Grand Auditorium Guitar is a special version of the famous "Natural Series" and features a Sitka spruce top with a light satin finish for exceptional acoustic tone.
Built on the smaller grand auditorium platform, the Takamine ESN40C acoustic-electric guitar is perfect for those seeking a more compact instrument than a dreadnought but don't want to compromise on tone. This Takamine features a cutaway design, adding comfort and range when accessing the upper-register frets. The top is solid sitka spruce, giving a balanced range to its sound and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking. The back and sides are mahogany, adding projection and definition to the sustain. The mahogany neck is strong and durable, and the rosewood bridge and fingerboard complement the dreadnought's clear tone. Other luxurious appointments include a double-bridge saddle, bone nut and saddle, natural wooden rosette, two-way truss rod, scalloped bracing, dot inlays, and a light satin finish.
At the heart of this Takamine is its CT-4B electronics section. The CT-4B preamp is designed for ease of use and purity of tone. It consists of three bands of graphic EQ tone control, a volume control slider, and a built-in chromatic tuner. The desired tone is dialed in by using sliders to add or subtract frequency response as desired. The built-in chromatic tuner is extremely accurate, very easy to use, and capable of being calibrated to frequencies other than standard A440, so your Takamine ESN40C guitar will stay in key—whatever that key happens to be. To facilitate silent onstage tuning, the tuner's power button acts as a mute switch when the guitar is amplified.
