Takamine's P4DC dreadnought cutaway combines tradition with contemporary refinements, including a resonant solid spruce top with scalloped "X" 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 CT4B II preamp system and proprietary Palathetic™ under-saddle pickup for superior amplified response. The acclaimed CT4B II features a three-band EQ, volume control and built-in tuner.

Other performance-enhancing features include a convenient Venetian cutaway for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard, and Takamine’s asymmetrical neck profile – which is slightly thinner on the treble 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 "dot-in-dot" inlays, gold tuners with amber buttons, a natural bone nut, elegant red tortoise pickguard and a gloss natural finish.

The PD4C comes complete with a premium archtop hardshell case.
 

Palathetic Pickup
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.
