Dreadnought guitars with electronics | Product code: P5DC | ID: 217117
Electro-acoustic guitar with dreadnought cutaway body shape from Pro 7 series that combines tradition with contemporary refinements, including a resonant solid spruce top with “X” top bracing for superior clarity and projection, and a solid rosewood back with rosewood sides for a rich, warm sound. The most popular body shape of the past half century, the dreadnought delivers a strong low end with plenty of volume. Built with the performer in mind, the guitar features Takamine’s proprietary CTP-3 Cool Tube preamp system paired with the unique Palathetic under-saddle pickup for peerless 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 mahogany neck profile – which is slightly thinner on the bass side so that it fits the natural shape of the 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 42.67mm wide nut and gloss natural finish. The instrument comes complete with a premium arch-top hard-shell case.
