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.
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
