Sellers have the right to set their own prices independently, but some manufacturers place restrictions on how those prices may be displayed or communicated to others. Because the seller's price on this item is below the manufacturer's "minimum advertised price" the manufacturer may not allow the seller to show you the seller's lower price until you take further action, such as clicking on a drop down menu, placing the item in your cart, or proceeding to checkout. The steps required depend on the terms of the manufacturer's minimum advertised price policy. Taking these steps allows eBay to show you the seller's great price consistent with eBay's goal of always bringing consumers like you the lowest possible prices on the widest selection of products.

You should know that by taking these steps, you won't be required to purchase the product. You can always simply remove the item from your cart or not proceed with checkout if you decide not to buy the item.

 Here for sale is the hand made Takamine ETN40C. This one of the most popular models Takamine makes because of its great combination of affordability and professional features. It's is part of the newly revised Natural series. Takamine has made a few small yet welcome revisions to this outstanding line of guitars including the addition of a minimal fretboard inlay design and a beautiful Ovangkol & rosewood rosette. It's a wonderful guitar with very subtle and understated good looks. Like all handmade Takamine's it plays really well and sounds terrific. The Cedar & Mahogany combination in a Nex cutaway body size yields a very warm and balanced tone with plenty of volume and projection. The ETN40C is a perfect fingerstyle guitar but is well suited for many musical styles. This is a brand new guitar and comes with the deluxe hard shell case and Full Factory warranty. If you have any questions at all please feel free to call!

About the ETN40C :

Acoustic sound set free. The Takamine Natural Series was conceived to give you the biggest and widest acoustic sound possible. Solid cedar tops, solid mahogany backs, a thin satin finish and no pickguard no anything that could possibly impede the vibration of the soundboard was purposely left out.

The theory works. Naturals are so alive with sound that they nearly jump out of your hands. The clean and simple approach of the Naturals has been imitated by other makers, but nothing yet has compared to the purity of style ñ and sound ñ of the original.

This body is a signature Takamine design. The top has a pleasing, rounded profile that is narrow at the waist, yet broad behind the bridge creating a soundboard that offers a balanced frequency response with deep bass, clear treble, and a sweet, round midrange that projects well. The body carries the depth of a dreadnought to ensure a great level of volume.

The NEX has the feel of a small-bodied guitar yet yields impressive performance, and is an excellent accompaniment to the singer-songwriter, or the finger-style player.

The CT4B preamp is designed for ease of use and purity of tone. The CT4B consists of 3 bands of graphic EQ tone control, a volume control slider and a built-in chromatic tuner.

The 3 band EQ provides control over the bass (LOW), midrange (MID) and treble (HIGH) frequency response. With the sliders set at the midpoint (0) the electric signal from the guitar is evenly balanced across the frequency range. The desired tone is then dialed in by using the sliders to add or subtract frequency response as desired. Each frequency control slider will raise or lower the band response by +/-5db.
