Overview

Massive tone pours from Takamine's new Pro Series P1JC cutaway jumbo. This, together with the guitar's smooth playability and state-of-the-art onboard electronics, makes for a deeply satisfying acoustic experience both onstage and off. Great warmth, balance and harmonic richness resound from its X-braced solid cedar top and sapele back and sides. An elegant Venetian cutaway offers optimum access to the upper registers. Other premium features include a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlays. The unique Takamine split-saddle bone bridge provides faultless intonation and excellent acoustic coupling to the top. The P1JC also features chrome die-cast machine heads for superb tuning stability, a gloss naturalfinish top on satin back and sides, and the highly acclaimed CT4B II preamp system with three-band EQ, volume control and built-in tuner.

The Palathetic pickup
Using six individually shielded piezo-electric elements, one for each string, the Palathetic pickup is not a just a UST (under saddle pickup). In fact the Takamine design employs twelve times the element mass of the typical under saddle pickup. The six elements penetrate the bridge plate, soundboard and bridge to make direct contact with the saddle creating a sonic linkage with the string. The pickup casing is mechanically attached to the guitars top and bridge creating a sonic linkage with the soundboard. The result of this design is a signal that possesses the articulation of an isolated string signal and the rich harmonic content delivered by the resonating soundboard for a full, complete and accurate acoustic guitar tone at high sound pressure levels.

CT4B II Preamp Features
The CT4B II preamp is designed for ease of use and purity of tone. The CT4B II consists of 3 bands of graphic EQ tone control, a volume control slider and a built-in chromatic tuner.

The 3 band EQ provides control over the bass (LOW), midrange (MID) and treble (HIGH) frequency response. With the sliders set at the midpoint (0) the electric signal from the guitar is evenly balanced across the frequency range. The desired tone is then dialed in by using the sliders to add or subtract frequency response as desired. Each frequency control slider will raise or lower the band response by +/-5db.

The volume slider adjusts the output volume of the preamp.

The convenient built-in chromatic tuner is extremely accurate and very easy to use. The tuner is activated by pressing the TUNER POWER button. To tune your instrument, simply pluck any open string. The tuner will then display the name of the note that has the closest frequency of the string played. The amount of deviation from the note (higher or lower) is displayed by red arrows indicating sharp or flat. When only the green center light illuminates, the note indicated in red has reached precise tuning. When the guitar is unplugged, the TUNER POWER switch acts as on and off.

Your CT4B II tuner is also capable of being calibrated to frequencies other than standard A440. When the PITCH button is pressed, the frequency that is currently set will be shown by a flashing red light above the frequency number. While the reference light is flashing, press the Pitch repeatedly to set the desired reference pitch. With each press of the button, the reference pitch will increase by 1Hz increments from 440Hz to 445Hz. Once the pitch has reached 445Hz, the next press will decrease the pitch to 438Hz. When the button operation is stopped, the reference pitch is set and the tuner will stand by for tuning.

To facilitate silent on-stage tuning, the TUNER POWER button also acts as a mute switch when the guitar is played amplified. If you wish to be able to tune with your signal amplified, simply press the TUNER POWER a second time. Press a third time to shut off the tuner function. The tuner will shut off automatically when there is no signal for a couple of minutes.

This Japanese beauty had me at hello.

By MARC ETIENNE

from Boston,Ma

I first bought the G series jumbo which was gorgeous and sounded and played the same way,but it had a chip on the front soundboard so I sent it back.Should of went through Guitar Center instead of dealing with the freekn hassle of shipping it back,and then waiting for the bank stuff to right itself.If I went through GC it all would of been the same day.But back to this Guitar.Best Guitar Ive ever owned.The craftsmanship is off the charts.This model is the sleeper,hands down.Solid spruce top,Sapele (African mahogany)Sides and back.And the preamp is renowned and sounds awesome.I looked long and hard and none of the proven top end Guitar makers had these tone woods for this price.Go ahead, go search yourself.I recorded myself with a top of the line Yamaha that had good tone woods itself and it sounded real good.Then I did the same parts with this, and it was almost night and day.I could hear beautiful fundamentals and overtones that I never heard with the Yamaha.I cant say enough about this guitar.Rings out but not over bearing and plays smooth with the nice finnish.Cant wait for the wood to age a little.I wont be selling or trading this one.I ordered this a month ago and it was worth the wait.Thank you Takamine for taking pride in your guitars and Guitar Center for getting it here as soon as it came in,like you said.At the listed price,this is a STEAL.Last time I had this feeling was when my mom got me a dirt bike.:->
