Toby Keith Unveils Signature Takamine Guitar
Toby Keith has written award-winning songs, opened a chain of restaurants and even made appearances on the small screen. Now, the country crooner can add 'guitar designer' to his resume. Keith has recently unveiled his Signature Takamine EF250TK acoustic guitar and it's a beauty.
Keith brought his decades of experience playing guitar to the table when he designed this acoustic beauty to his exact preferences. The signature Takamine is loaded with special features, including a jumbo cutaway body and a solid spruce top. Details like the scalloped “X” bracing, mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlays and flame maple back and sides give the guitar a gorgeous sheen that's so pretty it's sure to wow even the folks sitting in the nosebleed section at Keith's jam-packed performances.
Of course, the 'Hope on the Rocks' hitmaker's signature guitar isn't just a pretty thing to look at. Thanks to Takamine’s Palathetic under-saddle pickup, CT4B II preamp with its three-band EQ, and volume control and built-in tuner, this axe is one that you can use to write a hit song.
After all, Keith knows a thing or two about making hits. Last year, the popular country star released a series of drinking-themed singles, including 'Beers Ago,' 'I Like Girls That Drink Beer' and 'Hope on the Rocks.' All three of the tunes performed well on the charts, with 'Beers Ago' climbing to the top 10.
Keith's signature guitar wouldn't be complete without...well...the country star's actual signature. You can find his John Hancock on the heel cap and his silhouette image on a special headstock medallion.
