Fuel your chords
...with the power of the jumbo. This magnificent shape has been utilised for the P5JC, and once your start strumming, you'll immediately see why. Its fierce volume and balanced tone make the jumbo body perfect for a rhythm guitar as they allow for huge-sounding chords that flow with purpose and attitude. Scalloped X bracing then injects even more resonance and volume, as well as providing the spruce top with the stability it needs to withstand any passionate, lengthy, fearless playing. And when you want to slide to the top of the smooth rosewood fretboard, do so without any restrictions. The sleek and stylish Venetian cutaway offers effortless access to those top frets, so you can deliver every single note with comfort and pristine clarity.
Sound that glitters
Luscious, articulate, dynamic tones. They all exude from the gleaming solid spruce top. Even with the thickest of chords, you can be sure that every single note will shine, carried by sublime clarity and immense volume. Spruce has a broad dynamic range and beautifully balanced, wonderfully versatile sound, making it suitable for a range of genres.
You'll then have the even response of rosewood back and sides making your sound exquisite across the whole frequency range. Rosewood delivers both warmth and brightness in good measure, and it ensures that no note sounds out of place. Pure, pristine, acoustic goodness.
It's all in the details...
Takamine are renowned for producing high quality, long-lasting acoustics. And the P5JC is no different. Take the rosewood bridge with a split bone saddle, for example. The split saddle design produces immaculate intonation and tuning stability, so you can count on complete accuracy every time you play. A sleek, stylish pickguard adorns the spruce top too, producing a dazzling aesthetic that is sure to catch the attention of anyone, whilst abalone inlays and gleaming gold die-cast tuning machines add those heavenly finishing touches. It's an instrument with premium quality flowing through its veins.
The CTB4-DX preamp system features extensive controls and an easy-to-use design, giving you everything you need to achieve a well-sculpted, pristine tone. This dual channel system features a 4-band EQ, volume control, two notch filters, and a built-in tuner, so you can shape your sound with absolute precision. What's more, you can count on a dynamic, authentic tonal response courtesy of the Palathetic under-saddle pickup. Even with powerful amplification, the pickup will stay true to the natural tones of rosewood and spruce.
