A Wonderful Guitar for Singers

Thanks to its NEX body, the Takamine P5NC acoustic-electric guitar has the bold tone of a dreadnought while leaving ample sonic space for your voice. The solid spruce top with scalloped "X" bracing gives your tone amazing balance and articulation. Solid rosewood back and sides generate rich harmonics, picked up perfectly by Takamine's CTP-3 Cooltube preamp system. The P5NC is a performer's delight, an instrument you can truly count on at every gig. And thanks to smart touches like the asymmetrical neck profile for smooth playability, and the split bone saddle for better intonation, you can rely on the Takamine P5NC acoustic-electric guitar for top-notch performance.

Takamine P5NC Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Solid spruce top and rosewood back/sides are a magical tonewood combination
  • Takamine's CTP-3 Cooltube preamp system
  • Takamine - a legacy of amazing quality, sound, and playability

Solid spruce top and rosewood back/sides are a magical tonewood combination
Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the P5NC, Takamine chose a solid spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid spruce has an articulate sound with excellent projection. It's a great balance for the rich, dimensional sound of the solid rosewood back and sides. And because it's a solid-wood instrument, the tone of your P5NC will only get better, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

Takamine's CTP-3 Cooltube preamp system

The P7NC boasts Takamine's CTP-3 Cooltube preamp system, which runs a 12AU7 tube at low voltage to prevent it from heating up and affecting your guitar. The sound is natural and rich, with exceptional dynamics. It also houses a built-in chromatic tuner, a Notch control, and a sweepable Mid Frequency control to really dial in your perfect tone. And an Aux jack allows you to install an additional pickup source to be blended with Takemine's undersaddle pickup for adding even more detail and warmth to you live acoustic sound.

Takamine - a legacy of amazing quality, sound, and playability

The Takamine P5NC acoustic-electric guitar benefits from a half-century of Takamine guitar-crafting knowhow. Launched in 1962 at the foot of Japan's Takamine mountains, Takamine has been designing and building acoustic guitars that are seen in the hands of some of music's biggest stars. With quality and value as guiding principles, Takamine's instruments employ the finest tonewoods and construction techniques - something you'll discover fro yourself as soon as you pick up your P5NC for the first time.

Amazing instrument

Not great at this writing stuff, but I can tell you that this guitar as a well balanced sound, pretty loud and responsive, plays like butter, looks amazing, intonation is dead-on even when using a capo (G7th). You'll be mesmerized by its sound, you will want to play it for hours and you will missed it the moment you put it away on its amazing case. Sweetwater made an amazing jobs setting it up. If you get it, you will get what you pay for and more.
