Takamine P5DC Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar Natural
Takamine’s stylish P5DC dreadnought cutaway 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.
Built with the performer in mind, the P5DC 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 neck profile – which is slightly thinner on the bass 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 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 nut and gloss natural finish. The P5DC comes complete with a premium archtop hardshell case.

Awesome transaction! I bought a pretty special guitar (previously owned by a famous guitarist), and Ish nailed it. Ethical dealer, quick ship, and fast responses. I look forward to doing business with them again in the future!Devin, L'arrivee D-60
