Features

Takamine’s P5JC jumbo cutaway model is loud and forceful, with a resonant solid spruce top with scalloped “X” top bracing for maximum volume, rosewood back and 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 P5J features Takamine’s proprietary CT4-DX preamp system and unique Palathetic™ under-saddle pickup for superior amplified response. The dual channel CT4-DX provides a four-band EQ, two feedback-reducing notch-filter controls, a flexible dual-pickup mix control (for use when a second pickup is added), volume control and an onboard 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 ivory and abalone “dot-in-dot” inlays, a rosewood headcap, gold tuners with gold buttons, a natural bone nut and gloss natural finish. The P5JC comes complete with a premium
archtop hardshell case.
