Overview

The NEX body style offers superior sound and comfortable play. The solid bear claw spruce top creates a resonant soundboard while the solid Indian rosewood back and sides project beautifully. The ebony fingerboard has tasteful abalone snowflakes complemented by abalone binding and rosette inlays.

The CTP-1 Cool Tube preamp houses a a 12AU7 dual triode vacuum tube for lush, warm sound. The tube runs at only 2-3 degrees above ambient temperature, so there is no concern over radiant heat. Its tuner can be calibrated from A438 to A445. An LED display reveals the note being played and directs the player with illuminated arrows that show sharp and flat. The EQ section has a shelving graphic EQ for bass and treble and semi-parametric EQ to set the mid point of the midrange frequency. A Cool Tube knob controls the impact of the tube. An auxiliary input jack and volume knob can control an additional add-on pickup of your choice and can accept a magnetic sound hole pickup, or a soundboard transducer. An AUX control knob blends the add-on signal with the Takamine pickup. A switch matches varying outputs of different pickups with the preamp. The output volume slider can then control the blended signal. The CTP-1 is powered by 4 AA batteries, which will deliver approximately 24 hours of playing time.

Takamine Acoustic/Electric

By c

from Carriere, MS

Comments about Takamine TNV460SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar with CTP-1 Cool Tube Preamp:

First off, this guitar is one of the best acoustic/electric guitars Takamine makes. The sound is brilliant, clear and rich. Also the feel of the neck and body on the guitar are just right. The finish is nice also with the pearls around the edge of the body but it could be better for the price. This is where Gibson beats Takamine in my opinion for the finish. The pre-amp is awesome, it doesn't take away any of the acoustic sound and the action is great out of the box. You could play any style with this guitar and still sound great. I really recommend this guitar over Gibson and Fender if you want a acoustic/electric guitar that is great all around.

Comments about Takamine TNV460SC Acoustic-Electric Guitar with CTP-1 Cool Tube Preamp:

Takamine is the best playing experience. It was between the Martin or the Takamine for me, and Takamine won out. I have enjoyed it so much and anyone who plays it doesn't want to put it down. It has a rich warm sound and wouldn't trade it. If I have to get another one it's Takamine all the way!
