With Takamine’s distinctive NEX body style, the P5NC is a singer’s delight, combining the power of a dreadnought with balanced tone that perfectly complements the vocal range. It features a resonant solid spruce top with scalloped “X” top bracing for superior balance and articulation, solid rosewood back and rosewood sides, a convenient Venetian cutaway for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard. Built with the performer in mind, the P5NC features Takamine’s proprietary CTP-3 Cool Tube™ preamp system paired with the unique Palathetic™ under-saddle pickup for peerless amplified response. Other performance-enhancing features 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 P5NC comes complete with a premium archtop hardshell case.
