The Takamine TAN16C is a dreadnaught acoustic-electric guitar reflects the Takamine touch in full measure. The TAN16C cutaway guitar's solid spruce top is fully resonant thanks to scalloped bracing. The back is solid rosewood which gives this guitar tonal warmth. Cosmetic touches such as an abalone rosette, gold tuners with amber pearl, tortoise pickguard, body binding, and a clean fretboard give the Takamine TAN16C a visual elegance that matches its brilliant acoustic tone. A Cool Tube onboard tube preamp with bass, treble, semi-parametric mid, an aux source input with blend control, and a chromatic tuner offers warm acoustic tone that's very tweakable. A wonderful sounding dreadnought played acoustically or amplified.
