OVERVIEW

A dreadnought with balanced tone that perfectly complements the vocal range.

With Takamine's distinctive NEX body style, the P5NC is a singer's delight, combining the power of a dreadnought with balanced tone that perfectly complements the vocal range. It features a resonant solid spruce top with scalloped "X" top bracing for superior balance and articulation, solid rosewood back and rosewood sides, a convenient Venetian cutaway for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard, and elegant ivory body binding with dark wood purfling and abalone rosette.

Built with the performer in mind, the P5NC features Takamine's the P5NC 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 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 a rosewood fingerboard with abalone "dot-indot" inlays, a rosewood headcap, gold tuners with gold buttons, a natural bone nut and gloss natural finish.

Introducing the CT4-DX
The 2-channel CT4-DX offers the ultimate in preamp flexibility. Used with the Palathetic undersaddle pickup, it offers 4-band EQ (low, low mid, high mid, high) and two notch filter controls to reduce feedback.

Add a second pickup and the CT4-DX gives you independent control over both pickups, each of which will then have two-band EQ and a notch filter control. You can also alter the mix levels of each of the pickups. Other features include volume control and onboard tuner.
