The Takamine P5NC Pro Series NEX cutaway acoustic-electric guitar is designed to meet the needs of passionate performers. The resonant solid spruce top offers balanced tone and articulation, while the solid rosewood sides and back provide rich, full sound. The NEX body shape combines the volume of a dreadnought with a slimmer profile for comfort and the Venetian cutaway gives you easy access to the upper frets. Whether on stage or in the studio, the P5NC is built to help you achieve your musical vision.

Versatile Cutaway Shape Suits Any Style

The P5NC's NEX cutaway shape provides comfort and access, suiting any playing position or musical genre. Its slim, rounded profile reduces bulk while still producing bold dreadnought volume. When seated, the cutaway allows your arm to rest naturally against the top. Standing, the cutaway gives you room to move freely while soloing at the upper frets. Whether flatpicking, strumming or fingerpicking, the NEX shape accommodates any technique. Its balanced tone also pairs perfectly with vocals, making the P5NC an ideal instrument for singer-songwriters.

CTP-3 Preamp Delivers Vintage Tube Tone

Takamine's CTP-3 preamp system gives you a palette of tonal colors to suit any style or venue. The dual-channel preamp offers a range of tones from bright and shimmering to warm and mellow. Adjust the 3-band EQ and semi-parametric midrange to craft your ideal sound. When paired with the unique Palathetic undersaddle pickup, the CTP-3 preamp provides a natural acoustic voice. The preamp also includes an onboard chromatic tuner so you're always ready to perform.

Premium Components Enhance Playability

The P5NC is equipped with premium components to inspire your creativity. The rosewood fingerboard features elegant abalone "dot-in-dot" inlays, while the natural bone nut helps produce rich tone with clear definition. Takamine's asymmetrical neck profile is slightly thinner on the bass side, fitting comfortably in your hand. The split bone saddle provides precise intonation for chords and single notes to ring true. From the gold tuners to the gloss natural finish, every detail of the P5NC is designed to elevate your performance.
