Takamine’s P4DC dreadnought cutaway combines tradition with contemporary refinements, including a resonant solid spruce top with scalloped “X” top bracing for superior clarity and projection, and a solid sapele back with sapele sides for rich, warm sound.
Built with the performer in mind, the P4DC features Takamine’s CT4B II preamp system and proprietary Palathetic™ under-saddle pickup for superior amplified response. The acclaimed CT4B II features a three-band EQ, volume control and built-in tuner.
Other performance-enhancing features include a convenient Venetian cutaway for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard, and Takamine’s 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, while the pin-less rosewood bridge makes string changes a breeze.
Premium design appointments include elegant ivory body binding with dark wood purfling, a rosette featuring concentric rings and wood marquetry, a rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and wood “dot-in-dot” inlays, gold tuners with amber buttons, a natural bone nut, elegant red tortoise pickguard and a gloss natural finish.
