A gorgeous Takamine Acoustic-electric 4-string with onboard tube preamp and chromatic tuner.
The Takamine TB240SC Acoustic-Electric Bass is graced with a jumbo body, striking tone woods, and integrated electronics. The jumbo bass has the greatest internal air volume and delivers a sound that matches its name. The curvature of the top profile hints at the resulting tonality of the TB240SC bass' body design. Deep, round tones with fat, vibrant mid frequencies make the jumbo a stand out in a group setting. The Takamine jumbo bass guitar's tonal spectrum is enhanced by its dynamic range. From aggressive chording to gentle finger progressions, the Takamine jumbo acoustic-electric bass responds well to the subtle, and not so subtle demands that might be made of it.
The TB240SC bass is equipped with a solid cedar top, providing punch and projection to the guitar, to make it stand out in both acoustic and amplified settings. The mahogany back and sides complement this punchy character, and add clarity and depth to the tone. The rosewood bridge and fretboard promote lasting sustain, along with the sturdy maple neck. Other appointments include an abalone rosette, dot inlays, chrome tuners and hardware, and a satin natural finish to dress up the bass in a soft appearance.
At the heart of the Takamine TB240SC bass lies an impressive and intuitive Cool Tube electronics system that lets you dial in your perfect sound, tune, and amplify quickly and painlessly. The Cool Tube on-board tube preamp features bass and treble tone controls, semi-parametric midrange, a second-source input and blend control, and chromatic tuner.
