With its under-saddle pickup run through a CoolTube CTP-3 preamp system, the all-solid-wood Takamine P5DC Pro Series acoustic-electric is built to perform.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Solid spruce top Punchy, articulate and warm sound
Rosewood back and sides Warm tone with long sustain
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
CT4-DX preamp 4-channel EQ and 2 notch filters to limit feedback

Takamine's stylish P5DC dreadnought cutaway combines tradition with contemporary refinements, including a resonant solid spruce top with scalloped "X" top bracing for superior clarity and projection, and a solid rosewood back with rosewood sides for a rich, warm sound. Built with the performer in mind, the P5DC features Takamine's proprietary CTP-3 Cool Tube preamp system and unique Palathetic under-saddle pickup for superior amplified response. The dual-channel CTP-3 provides low-voltage tube tone, variable from bright and brilliant to thick and warm, three-band EQ with semi-parametric midrange, auxiliary input and volume (for use when a second pickup is added), and an onboard chromatic tuner.

Other performance-enhancing features include a convenient Venetian cutaway for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard, and Takamine's asymmetrical neck profile - which is slightly thinner on the treble side so that it fits the natural shape of your hand, resulting in a comfortable feel and improved playability. The split bone saddle provides more accurate intonation, while bridge pin positioning optimizes the break angle to improve sustain and presence.

Premium design appointments include elegant ivory body binding with dark wood purfling, an abalone rosette, a rosewood fingerboard with abalone "dot-in-dot" inlays, a rosewood headcap, gold tuners with gold buttons, a natural bone nut and gloss natural finish.

Just got this Guitar today. It Plays great very comfortable neck. I might lower the action but really not needed for most players I think. It sounds good unplugged even though I use very light strings for an acoustic. But plugged in it sounds Spaciously Beautiful. The preamp is really good and gives you lots of ways to very the tone. It came flawless and set up very well for a factory setup. Thanks zZounds for the opportunity to own this guitar. i probably could not afford it any other way.
