Takamine Santa Fe ESF-40C (MIJ)

takamine-santa-fe-esf-40c--8-.jpgtakamine-santa-fe-esf-40c--9-.jpgRARE TAKAMINE SANTA FE ESF-40C ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC GUITAR. The Sante Fe range is very rare and a wonderful example of Takamine craftmanship. The ESF-40C model - identified by the beautiful turquoise emblem on the 12th fret. I can understand why - because it is an amazing guitar. This beauty was built-in 1996 and has NEX body style (15-1/2" lower bout), rounded cutaway, gloss natural finish, solid cedar top, mahogany sides and solid back, mahogany neck, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard, turquoise emblem inlay at 12th fret, 1-11/16" nut width, 25-1/2" scale, rosewood bridge with split saddle. The sound unplugged is melow, sweet and smooth, especially takamine-santa-fe-esf-40c--2-.jpgwith light strings, and plugged in the built-in Takamine preamp adds superb clarity. For those seeking an amplified guitar that sounds right, with precision and detail in the midds treble bass notes you can go there. If you are looking for the big bass acoustic sound, go away. It is not made for that! Is a electro acoustic. In pure acoustic sound is clean cut but lacks the big bass a little. The sound is clear balanced with good midrange and treble ends. The sound is there! Correction to the preamp is very good. The bass are there and you can still play with. Plugged in, of course, the Takamine comes alive. Really rich sound! The palathetic pickup has long been recognised as a great performer and the Takamine Graph-EX Preamp offers basic but adequate control over the balance. The pickup system is very well balanced across all strings. The Takamine Graph-EX Preamp is a well proven preamp for live playing.The neck is nice and it does not forgive you your errors that agree on. So ite forces youto work to give the best of itself and you. It is hard to get hold of now, takamine-santa-fe-esf-40c--4-.jpgTakamine never planned to make it for long, but the ESF-40C is the guitar of choice for a number of contemporary musicians, including American singer-songwriter Howie Day. She is very well built, with no corner cutting. She has a solid cedar top, solid mahogany back and sides and a rosewood bridge and fretboard. I have used this guitar on tour and in home recordings and she has never let me down. In keeping with usage, there are a couple of slight bumps in the gloss and slight scratches, but nothing that affects her playability. She sitts in the original case - though that has taken a bit of beating from being on the road and in the air.
