Takamine celebrates the introduction of its new Pro Series 1 and Pro Series 2 acoustic-electric guitars. Each Pro Series instrument is carefully hand-crafted in the foothills of the Japanese Alps. There, dedicated craftspeople create instruments of unique beauty and sonic excellence.

The seven new Pro Series 1 and Pro Series 2 models include the P1D, P1DC, P1JC, P1JC-12, P1M, P1NC, P2DC steel-string acoustic/electric guitars.

All Pros Series 1 guitars feature a solid cedar top, sapele back and sides, “X” bracing, and smooth gloss top with satin finish neck, back and sides. All feature a mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, a pin-less rosewood bridge for easy string changes, a split bone saddle for faultless intonation, a bone nut and chrome machine heads. On-board electronics include the renowned Takamine Palathetic® pickup and the latest-generation CT4B II three-band preamplifier. The Pro Series 2 model features the same specifications as the Series 1 guitars, but with a solid spruce top instead of cedar.

The P1D non-cutaway 6-string, P1DC cutaway dreadnought, P1JC jumbo cutaway 6-string, and P1JC-12 jumbo cutaway 12-string guitars provide full-size Takamine acoustic sound and electric performance.

The P1M orchestra-style model offers versatile dynamics and characteristically strong midrange with elegant styling and smooth playability.

The P1NC delivers full and balanced tone from a classic Takamine NEX/grand auditorium-style body with an elegant Venetian cutaway.

The P2DC offers a solid spruce top with classic Takamine tone and playability, great projection, balance and harmonic richness.

MSRPs range from $1374.99 to $1574.99.
