Vintage Look, Feel, and Sound in a New Guitar

By virtue of Takamine's ingenious Thermal Top technology, the EF360S TT 6-string acoustic-electric serves up the magical, played-in tone of a true vintage guitar. Rosewood back and sides topped with solid spruce yields tremendous dynamic range, a healthy dose of bass frequencies, and a touch of high-end sizzle. The EF360S TT delivers excellent volume and projection, thanks to its dreadnought shape. The EF360S TT's comfortable ebony-topped mahogany neck is a joy to play, especially if you're into vintage-shaped necks. Superb plugged-in tone is yours with the EF360S TT's onboard TLD-2 line driver preamp. You'll love the vintage look, feel, and sound of the Takamine EF360S TT 6-string acoustic-electric guitar.

  • Takamine produces guitars of amazing quality, sound, and playability
Thermal Top technology serves up real vintage performance

Thanks to Takamine's Thermal Top technology, the EF360S TT looks, feels, and sounds like a vintage guitar. To achieve this, the EF360S TT's solid spruce top was baked in a controlled high-heat, low-oxygen environment. The EF360S TT provides you with the magical experience of a vintage guitar in a brand-new instrument.

Dreadnought body provides a loud, bold, resonant tone

One of the most common styles of acoustic guitars, the dreadnought body is relatively large, resulting in a bold and often loud tone. With square shoulders and a square bottom, dreadnought guitars have enjoyed particular success among folk and bluegrass musicians due to the dreadnought's rich, resonant quality. Pretty much the standard shape for flatpickers, dreadnoughts not only produce exceptional deep tones, but they're also known for their articulation and all-around balanced sound.

TLD-2 preamp delivers natural acoustic tone onstage

The Takamine EF360S TT features an LTD-2 line driver preamp, which consists of a simple circuit that buffers the pickup and boosts your signal. This prevents the sonic degradation that frequently occurs with long cable runs. This discreetly mounted preamp is virtually invisible, with no outward sign of onboard electronics. Combined with a Palathetic pickup, the LTD-2 sounds phenomenal with no tweaking; however, three small controls for bass, mid, and treble are accessible by removing the guitar's input jack. The organic transparency of this preamp is astounding.

Takamine produces guitars of amazing quality, sound, and playability

The Takamine EF360S TT benefits from a half century of Takamine guitar-crafting know-how. Launched in 1962 at the foot of Japan's Takamine mountains, Takamine has been designing and building acoustic guitars that are seen in the hands of some of music's biggest stars, including Glenn Frey, Bruce Springsteen, Bruno Mars, and Toby Keith. With quality and value as guiding principles, Takamine's instruments employ the finest tonewoods and construction techniques - something you'll discover for yourself as soon as you pick up your EF360S TT for the first time.

Takamine EF360S TT 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Thermal Top technology serves up the look, feel, and sound of a vintage guitar
  • Spruce-topped rosewood yields excellent dynamic range, present bass, and high-end sizzle
  • Dreadnought shape delivers incredible low end and volume
  • Comfortable vintage-profile mahogany neck with highly playable ebony fingerboard

Takamine 360 tt

Very similar built to martins d28 d35 Less bass and more even balance of tone to my likings. Incredible plugged in sound... beats all the pickups I've used to far on martins and guilds
