Takamine Pro Series P4DC Dreadnought Cutaway Electro-Acoustic Guitar
Takamine’s P4DC 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 sapele back with sapele sides for rich, warm sound.
For over 50 years Takamine have been offering high grade Japanese craftsmanship and technical innovation for electro acoustic guitars. This has lead it to be a stage favourite for numerous musicians including Bruce Springsteen, Biffy Clyro, Bon Jovi, India Arie and Jerry Cantrell.
Still produced with the same values in mind as when the company formed over 50 years ago, Takamine is dedicated to the art and craft of making acoustic instruments.
Built with the performer in mind, the P4DC features Takamine’s CT4B II preamp system and proprietary Palathetic™ under-saddle pickup for superior amplified response. The acclaimed CT4B II features a three-band EQ, volume control and built-in 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 the pin-less rosewood bridge makes string changes a breeze.
Premium design appointments include elegant ivory body binding with dark wood purfling, a rosette featuring concentric rings and wood marquetry, a rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and wood “dot-in-dot” inlays, gold tuners with amber buttons, a natural bone nut, elegant red tortoise pickguard and a gloss natural finish.
Palathetic Pickup And CT4B II Preamp
Using six individually shielded piezo-electric elements, one for each string, the Palathetic™ pickup is not a just a UST (under saddle pickup).In fact the Takamine design employs twelve times the element mass of the typical under saddle pickup.
The six elements penetrate the bridge plate, soundboard and bridge to make direct contact with the saddle creating a sonic linkage with the string. The pickup casing is mechanically attached to the guitars top and bridge creating a sonic linkage with the soundboard. The result of this design is a signal that possesses the articulation of an isolated string signal and the rich harmonic content delivered by the resonating soundboard for a full, complete and accurate acoustic guitar tone at high sound pressure levels.
All Takamine guitars have a number of unique features:
Specially designed preamp: Working in combination with the pickup Takamine's preamps deliver near mic quality sound, check out the video below to hear just how good it sounds.
Two way truss rod, double saddle bridge, grounded twice: To ensure reliability on stage, protection from neck warp and perfect intonation.
