Takamine's P4DC dreadnought cutaway combines tradition with contemporary refinements, including a resonant solid spruce top with scalloped œX top bracing for superior clarity and projection, and a solid sapele back with sapele sides for rich, warm sound.
Built with the performer in mind, the P4DC 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' 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 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 œdot-in-dot inlays, gold tuners with amber buttons, a natural bone nut, elegant red tortoise pickguard and a gloss natural finish.
CTP-3 CoolTube Preamp Features
The full-range EQ section uses shelving filters to sculpt bass and treble frequencies, with semi-parametric shaping control over the midrange. A control knob adjusts the frequency from 250Hz to 5kHz, and a pinpoint-precise onboard chromatic tuner is standard equipment. Other features include Mid and High cut switches for a second pickup.

Comments about Takamine Pro Series 4 Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
This is my first high end guitar . I shopped and played a lot of other guitars before deciding on the Takamine P4DC. This guitar has a rich powerful sound. The electronics are spot on. It delivers only an amplified sound, not a distorted electronic sound. I play with a bluegrass band and a praise and worship team. We do everything from out timey to bluegrass to newgrass to gospel to contemporary. This guitar does it all!
