"My order arrived yesterday as promised and in good condition. I order a great deal online but have never experienced the personal service and caring I found in your company. I was called twice from sales to help me save money on shipping and to verify product details. Thanks for doing business the old fashioned way. I will order with you again." - Russ, AL
Massive tone pours from Takamine’s new Pro Series P1JC cutaway jumbo. This, together with the guitar’s smooth playability and state-of-the-art onboard electronics, makes for a deeply satisfying acoustic experience both onstage and off. Great warmth, balance and harmonic richness resound from its X-braced solid cedar top and sapele back and sides. An elegant Venetian cutaway offers optimum access to the upper registers. Other premium features include a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlays. The unique Takamine split-saddle bone bridge provides faultless intonation and excellent acoustic coupling to the top. The P1JC also features chrome die-cast machine heads for superb tuning stability, a gloss naturalfinish top on satin back and sides, and the highly acclaimed CT4B II preamp system with three-band EQ, volume control and built-in tuner.
The core element behind the amplified superiority of Takamine acoustic electric guitars is the proprietary Palathetic™ pickup.
Using six individually shielded piezo-electric elements, one for each string, the Palathetic™ pickup is not a just a UST (under saddle transducer). In fact, the Takamine design employs twelve times the element mass of the typical under saddle pickup. The six elements penetrate the bridge plate, soundboard, and bridge to make direct contact with the saddle, creating a sonic linkage with the string. The pickup casing is mechanically attached to the guitars top and bridge, creating a sonic linkage with the soundboard. The result of this design is a signal that possesses the articulation of an isolated string signal and the rich harmonic content delivered by the resonating soundboard for a full, complete and accurate acoustic guitar tone at high sound pressure levels.
