Takamine Toby Keith EF250TK Sunburst, 2016

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

Here is a stunning jumbo body guitar ideal for stage performance – a Takamine Toby Keith, based on the EF250 he played for many years and is now a signature model.  

Drawing from classic Jumbo American guitars like the J-200 and F-500, the Takamine Toby Keith pairs a solid Sitka Spruce top with Flamed Maple for the cutaway, 17 inch wide body. The neck is Maple with Ebony used for the bound fingerboard, and Rosewood for the top-loading bridge. The inlays are Mother of Pearl and Abalone, with an Abalone ring at the rosette. The Gotoh tuners and endpin / output jack are gold coloured, and the controls for the CTB4 II pickup – preamp system are mounted on the bass side near the heel.

Dating to 2016 and Handcrafted in Japan, this Takamine Toby Keith is in great condition, has been well set up and sounds great. Acoustically, it’s not as loud as one might suspect from the size, but that’s a choice to help the pickup work better at stage volumes.

The original hard shell case is included.

More On The Takamine Toby Keith EF250TK Model From The Builder:

“Takamine is very proud to introduce the EF250TK Toby Keith Signature model, designed in cooperation with the top-selling country superstar and crafted to his exacting specs. Based on his longtime workhorse acoustic, the Takamine TF250SMCSB, it features a full-sounding jumbo body with a convenient cutaway, solid spruce top with “X” bracing, and beautiful flame maple back and sides. In Keith’s own personal touch, the EF250TK also features his signature on the heel cap and his silhouette image on a special headstock medallion.

Other premium features of the Takamine Toby Keith include a mahogany neck, 20-fret ebony fingerboard with abalone/mother-of-pearl inlays and bone nut, gold tuners and hardware, and elegant gloss Sunburst neck and body finish. The rosewood bridge has a split bone saddle for accurate intonation, and its pin-less design makes string changes a breeze.

For peerless amplified performance, the EF250TK is equipped with Takamine’s proprietary CT4B II preamp system paired with the unique Palathetic™ under-saddle pickup for peerless amplified response. The highly acclaimed CT4B II preamp system with three-band EQ, volume control and built-in tuner. Deluxe hard-shell case included.”
