Classic tone, optimum playability and state-of-the-art onboard electronics make playing Takamine’s new Pro Series P2DC dreadnought a thoroughly rewarding acoustic experience. Great projection, balance and harmonic richness resound from its X-braced solid spruce top and sapele back and sides. 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 P2DC also features chrome die-cast machine heads for superb tuning stability, a gloss natural-finish 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.
