A wonderful solid cedar top, solid rosewood back, plays like a dream. I'd keep it but I have to trim the crop. Hard case also made in Japan. Electronis run on 2 AA batteries. Tuner as well. Only works when plugged in, so dont leave plugged for extended periods.
(From my research this guitar is not inhibited soudwise at all from being black.)
Form the website. The EC132SC is handcrafted in our pro series facility that has been building precision quality instruments over five decades. This nylon string classical guitar pays homage to traditional classical instruments and follows closely to the original drawings of Antonio Torres. It is the first choice of performing classical latin and jazz musicians looking for pure nylon string tone at amplified volume levels. The solid cedar top produces a warm full tone with plenty of dynamic range. The solid rosewood back aids in the projection and enhances the sonic brilliance of the instruments. Gloss natural finish provides durability and adds to the beauty of the guitar. The mahogany neck features a dual action truss rod, which keeps the guitar playing perfectly in any environment. Includes Takamine's Palathetic™ pickup, known in the industry as one of the most accurate and natural sounding acoustic/electric pickups. The CT4B preamp has long been the popular choice among Takamine pro artists, providing warm natural acoustic tone at high sound pressure levels.
