The Year in Gear 2019
November 21, 2019
The 60+ guitars, amps, pedals, basses, and accessories that stood out from the crowd and earned our coveted Premier Gear Award this year.
Takamine EF360SC TTAn immaculately constructed dreadnought with a “toasted” solid spruce top, solid Indian rosewood back and sides, and Venetian cutaway, the EF360SC TT is attractive in a subdued, traditional way. Handmade in Sakashita, Japan, it’s equipped with the CT 4B II preamp, which is only available on Japan-built Taks. The guitar boasts impressive projection, sustain, and timbral balance, and has the solid feel and sonic versatility of a real workhorse.
