A petite and curvy body with a voice that doesn't quit.
The Takamine EG416S New Yorker Acoustic-Electric Gutiar is an example of a body style and a particular tone wood coming together so perfectly that you would think they were made for each other.
The smallest profile Takamine, the New Yorker is a traditional old-time guitar shape that produces an immediate, clear, full-bodied tone that evokes the old 78-rpm records of the 1940s. The Takamine New Yorker guitar's strumming voice is sharp and airy. When played finger-style the New Yorker sings with sweetness and character that makes you want to dig a little deeper into the roots of American music.
The EG416S New Yorker guitar combines rosewood sides and a 3-piece rosewood/maple back with the balance and clarity of a solid spruce top. This combination produces a voice rich beyond it's diminutive size. The mahogany neck and rosewood bridge and fretboard provide clarity and lasting sustain, with strength and beauty. The 1-11/16" nut width and symmetrical neck provides comfort for dancing across the guitar's 20 frets. At the heart of the guitar is the intuitive TP4T electronics system, an easy to use preamp featuring a 3-band graphic EQ, and a built-in tuner.
The TP4T preamplifier found on Takamine G-Series guitars offers a gain knob, a tuner, an 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" 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.
Never one to be left at home when there is music to be made, the EF416S-VS is stage and studio ready, with plenty of beautiful appointments, such as abalone inlays, abalone rosette, chrome tuners with black knobs, gold hardware, and a beautiful vintage sunburst gloss finish.

If you are looking for a smaller guitar with a distinct sound. This is worth a look.
I have owned many guitars, and this is by far my favorite. I love the way it sounds, I love the way it feels and I love the way it looks. I can't imagine ever needing another guitar.
Top notch quality all the way around. Great woods, great feel. The hardware is a fantastic match and the pickup sounds great.
Great value. This guitar is well worth the price and more.
The EG416S and its spruce top cousins are still in production. They're apparently just not available at MF.Maggie, I think, pretty much nailed it in her earlier review. This is a lovely guitar with excellent craftsmanship. Chinese guitars have become very high quality instruments....this one is no exception. The 1 11/16" nut is my only reservation about this guitar: I prefer 1 3/4". But that's not a deal breaker since the neck profile is so comfortable.The guitar I bought came with D'Addario strings and was very playable right out of the box: I'm pretty sure it was set up at the factory.The electronics have an integrated tuner that is very accurate and extremely handy. If I had a choice between a Taylor BT2 and this guitar, I'd choose this one. It could easily be a travel guitar.To conclude, this is just an all-around lovely guitar for those intimate settings playing with friends, an open mic or just noodling. And I don't think the price point on these is unreasonable: I paid $425 for mine shipped. They're normally $479-$559. Oh....and the three-piece back is gorgeous.
I played this guitar a few days ago at a local shop and it's pretty cool little guitar. It's got a great sound acoustically, nice even bass and mids and then the treble really shimmers. It'd make a really nice stage guitar for coffee shops or smaller gigs. Fingerpickers will love this instrument. I play mostly folk stuff and this guitar did really great with that. It was a little sparkly sounding for my taste (think Taylor as opposed to Martin). Takamine is pretty well known for having really great pickup systems and this one is no exception. For the money, I would not hesitate to grab this one if you're looking for an acoustic/electric. I'm not in the market currently but if I was I would seriously consider this guitar.
