The Takamine P5NC Pro Series NEX Acoustic Electric Guitar yields the powerful, balanced voice of the distinctive NEX body style, complementing the vocal range. The P5NC features a solid spruce top with scalloped X bracing for superior balance and articulation, as well as solid rosewood back and rosewood sides for superb warmth. A Venetian cutaway allows for access to the upper frets, while ivory body binding with dark wood purfling and abalone rosette add the perfect touch.
Built with the performer in mind, the P5NC 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 features on the P5NC acoustic electric 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.
