Scottsdale, AZ (January 10, 2012) – Takamine is proud to introduce its new Pro Series 4, 5 and 6 acoustic-electric guitars. The eight new steel-string Pro Series models include the:

  • P6JC − Jumbo cutaway
  • P6JC-12 − Jumbo cutaway 12-string

  • P6NC − NEX-body cutaway
  • P5DC − Dreadnought cutaway
  • P5J − Jumbo
  • P5JC − Jumbo cutaway
  • P4DC − Dreadnought cutaway

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.

MSRP for the P4DC is $1859.99. MSRP for the Pro Series 5 range from $2349.99 to $2449.99. MSRP for the Pro Series 6 range from $3129.99 to $3329.99.

Takamine is also proud to introduce its new top-line Pro Series 7 acoustic-electric guitars. Four new models include the P7D dreadnought, P7DC dreadnought cutaway, P7JC jumbo cutaway and P7NC NEX-body guitars.

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. The on-board proprietary CTP-2 Cool Tube preamplifier provides low-voltage tube tone, variable from bright and brilliant to thick and warm, a three-band EQ with semi- parametric midrange and an auxiliary output (for when a second pickup is added.)

Pro Series 7 instruments feature a solid spruce top with scalloped hand-cut “X” top bracing for optimum voicing, solid rosewood back and sides for rich clarity and projection, and elegant maple body binding with dark wood purfling, and an abalone rosette.

Premium design appointments include an ebony fingerboard with maple binding, traditional abalone “snowflake” inlays, a dark rosewood headcap with abalone Takamine logo, gold tuners with gold buttons, and a natural bone nut. A split bone saddle provides faultless intonation, while bridge pin positioning optimizes break angle to improve sustain and presence.

All guitars feature a premium archtop hard-shell case.

MSRP for the Pro Series 7 range from $3899.99 to $4039.99.
