Impressive performance at a great price.

The Takamine 12-String G Jumbo EG523CDX12 Acoustic-Electric Guitar delivers big, punchy sound. The G Jumbo Takamine is a great guitar for for hard-driving country and bluegrass strumming, while it also fits in perfectly with more intimate fingerstyle picking.

Takamine build the EG523CDX12 with a solid spruce top and a flamed maple body to provide plenty of balanced projection for the full, 12-string sound. The guitar’s asymmetrical maple neck, 25-5/16″ scale, 1-3/4″ nut width, and flat radius keep the EG523CDX12 comfortable for your fret hand. A dovetail neck joint and rosewood bridge and fretboard provide clear and lasting sustain. Gold tuners keep the jumbo guitar in tune from song to song. Other appointments include gold hardware and a gloss finish, adding a shining appearance to this beautifully constructed Takamine guitar.

At the heart of this 12-string Takamine is its cutting edge electronics system. A CP-100 pickup, and a TK40 preamp faithfully amplify the beautiful Takamine tone so you can play anywhere—in intimate settings or at center stage. The Takamine TK40 Preamplifier boasts volume control, bass, middle and treble frequency slider controls, EQ bypass, a Notch Filter, Tuner and a Mid Contour Switch.

The preamp’s EQ Bypass push button enables you to engage or defeat the EQ section. The Notch Filter is a specialized EQ, an extremely narrow and deep cut of an audio frequency band. By activating the Mid Contour button, you select a pre-shaped EQ that emphasizes the frequencies normally found to be desirable in an acoustic guitar (400 Hz). The TK40 preamp’s tuner is fully chromatic and automatic.

This guitar has been refurbished by MIRC. It is lightly stamped “used” on the back of the headstock and a new serial number applied to prevent the guitar from being sold as new factory stock. That being said, this guitar is about as close to new as ‘used’ can get! Everything works, plays, and sounds as it should. There have been no structural repairs. It appears the nut has been replaced (see pics). It has been professionally set up since the replacement, and plays perfectly now. There are also some marks in the binding, and on the headstock tip that can be seen in the pictures. Other than that, this guitar is in great condition. You WON’T be disappointed!
