Electro-acoustic guitar with dreadnought cutaway body shape that combines tradition with contemporary refinements, including a resonant solid spruce top with “X” top bracing for superior clarity and projection, and a solid sapele back with sapele sides for 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, this model 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 system 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 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 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. The guitar comes complete with a premium archtop hard-shell case.
