Takamine’s Pro Series instruments are built with the performer in mind, and feature the renowned Palathetic™ pickup that delivers detailed articulation and rich harmonic content for a complete and accurate acoustic guitar tone at high sound pressure levels. Pro Series 6 and 5 guitars feature the latest-generation CT4-DX four-band preamplifier with two feedback-reducing notch controls and a flexible dual-pickup mix control (for when a second pickup is added.) The Pro Series P4DC comes with the CT4B II three-band EQ system.
All Pro Series 6, 5 and 4 guitars feature a solid spruce top and scalloped “X” top bracing for superior balance and articulation. A split bone saddle provides faultless intonation, while the bridge pin positioning on the Series 5 and 6 optimizes break angle for improved sustain and presence. The Pro Series P4DC features the Takamine pin-less bridge, making string changes a breeze.
Pro Series 6 guitars also feature a solid flame maple back and flame maple sides, white body binding with black and white purfling, and mother-of-pearl rosette. The mahogany neck has an ebony fingerboard with white binding, and mother-of-pearl snowflake inlays.
Pro Series 5 guitars bodies are crafted with a solid rosewood back and rosewood sides for a rich, warm sound, and feature ivory binding with dark wood purfling and an abalone rosette. The mahogany neck has a rosewood fingerboard, and abalone “dot-in-dot” inlays.
The Pro Series P4DC features a solid sapele back and sapele sides, with ivory body binding and dark wood purfling, and rosette. The mahogany neck has a bound rosewood fingerboard with wood “dot-in-dot” inlays.
Each Pro Series instrument is carefully hand-crafted in the foothills of the Japanese Alps where dedicated craftspeople create instruments of unique beauty and sonic excellence.
All guitars feature a premium archtop hard-shell case.
