Scottsdale, AZ (January 22, 2013) – Takamine is proud to introduce the new EF250TK Toby Keith Signature acoustic-electric guitar, designed in cooperation with top-selling country music star, Toby Keith, and crafted to his exacting specifications.

The Toby Keith Signature model is based on Toby’s longtime workhorse acoustic, the Takamine TF250SMCSB, and features a full-sounding jumbo cutaway body, a solid spruce top with scalloped “X” bracing and beautiful flame maple back and sides. In Keith’s own personal touch, the EF250TK also features his signature on the heel cap and his silhouette image on a special headstock medallion.

Built with the performer in mind, the guitar is equipped with Takamine’s Palathetic under- saddle pickup and the highly acclaimed CT4B II preamp system with three-band EQ, volume control and built-in tuner.

Other premium features include abalone and mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlays, a split bone saddle for accurate intonation, and a pin-less bridge that makes string changes a breeze. A deluxe hard-shell case is included.

MSRP for the Takamine EF250TK Toby Keith Signature guitar is $3,599.99.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
