This Takamine P7NC is one of the highest model of Takamine, part of Pro Series 7.
Very high leve instrument, 100% Made in Japan, nice playability.
As opposed to its small body (NEX mini jumbo style), this Takamine P7NC has a lot of volume!
With Takamines distinctive NEX body style, the stylishly crafted P7NC is a singers delight, combining the power of a dreadnought with balanced tone that perfectly complements the vocal range. It features a resonant solid spruce top with X bracing and solid rosewood back and sides for superior balance and articulation, a convenient Venetian cutaway for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard, and elegant maple body binding with dark wood purfling and abalone rosette.
Built with the performer in mind, the P7NC features Takamines proprietary CTP-3 Cool Tube™ preamp system paired with the unique Palathetic™ under-saddle pickup for peerless amplified response. The dual-channel CTP-3 provides low-voltage tube tone, variable from bright and brilliant to thick and warm, three-band EQ with semi-parametric midrange, auxiliary input and volume (for use when a second pickup is added), and an onboard chromatic tuner.
Other performance-enhancing features include Takamines 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, and the rosewood bridge features abalone-dot ivory pins.
Premium design appointments include an ebony fingerboard with ivory binding, abalone snowflake inlays, a dark rosewood headcap with abalone Takamine logo, gold tuners with gold buttons, a natural bone nut and smooth gloss natural finish. The P7NC comes complete with a premium archtop hardshell case.
