When size matters, go for a jumbo.
Built on a jumbo design, the Takamine EG523CDX acoustic-electric guitar from the G series possesses the greatest internal air volume and delivers a sound that matches its name. The curvature of the top profile hints at the resulting tonality of this body design. The Takamine jumbo guitar's tonal spectrum is enhanced by its dynamic range. From aggressive chord comping to gentle finger passages, the jumbo responds well to the subtle, and not so subtle demands that might be made of it. The Takamine guitar's solid spruce top offers balanced tone, while the flamed maple body brings out full projection. The dovetail neck joint, rosewood bridge and fretboard, and maple neck offer plenty of sustain, and the asymmetrical neck and 1-5/8" nut width provide comfort for intricate fretboard movements.
At the heart of this Takamine guitar is an impressive electronics system, letting you amplify your sound with intuitive frequency controls. The CP-100 pickup is an innovative pickup arrangement instead of the conventional under the saddle piezo design. The Takamine guitar uses a U-shaped aluminum rail, securing the pickup and saddle for a snug fit and balanced response from the instrument, not just pressure on the strings. The Takamine TK40 preamplifier features volume control, bass, middle and treble frequency slider controls, EQ bypass, a notch filter, tuner and a mid contour switch.
The G jumbo's gold hardware, gold and amber pearl tuners, and gloss finish adds a striking touch to this already beautiful instrument.
Takamine craftsmanship, and top-notch electronics create a big jumbo sound with lots of tone.
