This popular NEX model is a favorite of those who prefer a gloss finish with their solid cedar tops and mahogany back and sides. The turquoise eagle 12th fret inlay pays homage to Takamine's legendary Sante Fe series.
The TSF40C includes Takamine's proprietary CTP-3 Cool Tube preamp system. The dual-channel CTP-3 provides low-voltage tube tone, variable from bright and brilliant to thick and warm, three band EQ with semi-parametric midrange, auxiliary input and volume (for use when a second pickup is added), and an onboard chromatic tuner.
