Takamine EGB2S Cutaway Ac-El Bass in Black
Takamine has been producing beautifully designed and tonally superior electric-acoustic guitars for over 40 years. Now the company has put that wealth of experience into producing some of the finest acoustic-electric bass guitars the industry has ever seen. Takamine's dedication to the art and craft of guitar-making is plainly evident in the G Series EGB2S Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Bass. Built on a jumbo design, the large, deep body of the Takamine bass guitar creates a boomy resonating chamber and soundboard, which translates into a bold sound, not often found in an acoustic-electric bass crossover. It starts with a solid spruce top adding deep, balanced tone. The mahogany body creates plenty of projection with a hint of bright crispness that adds definition to each note. The maple neck and rosewood fretboard add to this clarity, while the symmetrical neck shape and 1-3/4" nut width provide comfort for intricate movements along the 21 frets of the Takamine bass. Chrome tuners offer precise tuning from song to song and the cutaway on the upper bout provides range when accessing the upper-register notes. The Takamine EGB2S bass's other appointments include chrome hardware, striking white bridge, and a gloss finish to round out the package. At the heart of this Takamine G NEX acoustic bass is an impressive electronics system, letting you amplify your sound with intuitive frequency controls. The Takamine TP4T preamplifier features a gain knob, built-in tuner, active shelving system EQ with bass, middle, and treble frequency slider controls and a low battery light.
