Takamine's reputation in crafting high end instruments is well established. The P5NC upholds that reputation boasting handsome craftsmanship, quality appointments, and contemporary electronics. The P5NC is a great guitar for professional players who want the best the acoustic world has to offer.

Handsome Craftsmanship
This guitar is crafted in the Takamine NEX body style, a shape that combines powerful dreadnought sound with the balance of a smaller guitar. Great for vocal accompaniment, the P5NC has a solid spruce top supported with X bracing for excellent, articulate tone. The back and sides of this guitar are solid rosewood, with the upper bout sporting a Venetian cutaway for easy access to the upper frets. Takamine also gave the mahogany neck of this guitar an asymmetrical profile, slightly thinner on the bass side to fit the shape of your hand.   

Quality Appointments
Built to be played and stand the test of time, Takamine choose all the specs on these guitars to work great and look great. For a bit of functionality and flare, this guitar has gold tuners with gold buttons. The P5NC also sports elegant ivory body binding with dark wood purfling, as well as abalone rosette around the soundhole. It also has a split bone saddle for increased accuracy in intonation, as well as optimized bridge pin positioning to improve sustain and presence. The P5NC is finished in a gloss natural finish.  

Contemporary Electronics
Made for professional performance, the P5NC sports Takamine's proprietary CTP-3 Cool Tube preamp and a Palathetic under-saddle pickup. The CTP-3 has dual channels, for low voltage tube sound that ranges from thick and warm, to bright and resonant. This electronic system features a three-band EQ with semi-parametric midrange, auxiliary input and volume adjustment for use with a second pickup. It also has an onboard chromatic tuner.
