A handcrafted 12-string with exceptional amplified tone for versatile performance.

The Takamine EF381SC 12-string dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar provides a lush, symphonic sound thanks to its solid cedar top, and maple back and sides. Designed and handcrafted for serious musicians, this versatile guitar effortlessly produces everything from shimmering highs to rumbling lows. The mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard feel familiar under your fingers while the built-in CT4B II preamp system gives you total control over your tone with its 3-band EQ, volume control and tuner. Whether on stage or in the studio, the EF381SC 12-string dreadnought helps you craft a sound that's all your own.

Resonant Tonewoods for a Full, Rich Sound

The EF381SC 12-string dreadnought's solid cedar top resonates freely, projecting crisp highs, warm mids and tight lows. Its maple back and sides reflect these tones, enhancing resonance and adding tonal depth. Together, these premium tonewoods produce the complex, layered sound 12-string guitars are known for. The all-solid-wood construction also means your tone will open up and improve over time.

A Neck and Fingerboard Built for 12-String Playability

The mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard on the EF381SC 12-string dreadnought feel familiar and fast under your fingers. The slim, comfortable neck profile allows easy transitions between chords while the rosewood fingerboard provides a smooth playing surface. The 25.375" scale length offers tight, balanced string tension for articulate note separation. Overall, the neck and fingerboard are designed to make 12-string playing as effortless and enjoyable as possible.
