TAKAMINE TRADITIONAL/KEYSTONE (F) SERIES

TAKAMINE EF-325SRC

The Takamine EF-325SRC was a dreadnought style acoustic, with single cutaway introduced in the early 1990s and made until around 2003. The top was solid spruce with DC-1 bracing and black and white binding. Sides were bubinga and the neck was mahogany. These had a red stain with clear gloss polyurethane finish. These had a palathetic pickup with the 3-band Graph-Ex preamp assembly and an end-pin jack. The sound-hole label was a wood burned stamp and the serial number was found on a Takamine paper sticker on the heel block.
