Designed in Collaboration With Renowned Guitarist John Jorgenson

Takamine collaborated closely with acclaimed guitarist John Jorgenson to create a signature model optimized for his exacting standards. Jorgenson is known for his mastery of guitar styles ranging from bluegrass and Gypsy jazz to rock and country. His technical brilliance demands an instrument with excellent resonance, comfortable playability and stage-ready electronics. The JJ325SRC12 meets these needs with its solid spruce and bubinga construction, slim neck profile and built-in preamp. When you play this signature model, you benefit from the same thoughtful design that allows Jorgenson to shine on stage and in the studio.

Solid Spruce Top and Bubinga Back and Sides for Rich, Nuanced Tone

The JJ325SRC12 starts with a solid spruce top, which provides crisp, detailed highs and excellent resonance. Spruce is prized for its balanced response across the tonal spectrum, allowing the guitar's natural voice to shine. The bubinga back and sides add warmth and fullness to the spruce's top-end clarity. Bubinga is a relative of rosewood, offering comparable richness with additional complexity. Together, these tonewoods produce a lush, harmonically vibrant sound. Whether playing intricate fingerstyle passages or strumming bold rhythm accompaniment, you'll appreciate the JJ325SRC12's dynamic tonal palette.

Slim, Comfortable Neck Profile for Effortless Playability

The JJ325SRC12 features a slim mahogany neck with a fast-playing profile favored by Jorgenson. The smooth contours and shallow "C" shape allow easy access to the rosewood fingerboard, facilitating complex chords and single-note runs. The neck meets the body at the 14th fret, providing excellent upper-fret access. Along with its 1.875" nut width, these design elements create a feel familiar to electric guitarists. The JJ325SRC12 combines the rich tone of an acoustic guitar with the comfortable, playable feel of an electric. You'll find this signature model inspiring for chordal and lead playing alike.

Onboard Electronics Allow Detailed Tone Shaping

While the JJ325SRC12 sounds fantastic unplugged, its onboard preamp ensures your amplified tone always shines through. The 3-band EQ provides detailed control over lows, mids and highs, allowing you to craft a sound that's optimally balanced for the room. You can add sparkle and presence for solos, then dial in a smoother midrange for vocal accompaniment. And the built-in tuner makes it easy to keep the JJ325SRC12's 12 strings in tune, even under changing stage conditions. Whether rehearsing, recording or performing, the JJ325SRC12 gives you the tools to craft your ideal amplified tone.
