Posted Sep 30, 2012 at 8:00pm

Scottsdale, AZ (October 1, 2012) – Takamine celebrates the introduction of its new Pro Series 1, Pro Series 2, and Pro Series 3 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 Pro 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 seven new Pro Series 3 models include the P3D, P3DC, P3DC-12, P3MC, P3NC, P3NY steel-string and P3FCN classical acoustic/electric guitars.

All Pro Series 3 guitars feature a solid cedar top, solid sapele back and sapele sides, scalloped hand-cut “X” bracing for optimum voicing, a smooth, comfortable all-satin finish and artful wood marquetry. All feature a mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, a pin-less rosewood bridge for easy string changes, a split bone saddle for faultless intonation, and a bone nut and gold machine heads with amber buttons. On-board electronics include the renowned Takamine Palathetic pickup and the latest-generation CT4B II three-band preamplifier.

The P3D non-cutaway 6-string, P3DC cutaway 6-string, and P3DC-12 cutaway 12-string guitars provide full-size Takamine acoustic sound, style and performance, employing resonant tone woods, elegant appointments and state-of-the-art electronics.

The P3NC delivers the finest acoustic sound, style and performance from a classic Takamine NEX/grand auditorium-style body with an elegant Venetian cutaway.

The performance of the P3NY “New Yorker” parlor-style acoustic belies its diminutive size by offering a clear, full-bodied voice resounding with sweetness and character.

Takamine’s long history in classical guitar construction is embodied in the P3FCN contemporary nylon string acoustic/electric, designed to deliver classical nylon string tone in modern live and recording environments.

MSRPs range from $1594.99 to $1724.99.
