A Performers Guitar For Performers
Ronny Dean , 23.05.2020
This guitar is not for beginners. It’s for artists and performers who want to up their game. It’s icing on your cake. This guitar has a rich warm sound. It is the guitar preferred and used by artists like Blake Shelton. I like the honey tone color. It has attitude that screams, Pure Country. As an independent country music artist, this thrills me to the bone. This is the kind of guitar that you enjoy playing on stage and give it a name. There is a reason the pros like this guitar and shell out the money to get the right sound. If you want to look and sound like the professional artists, then get their tools. It’s as simple as that. Tools and talent is the right winning combination for success and I absolutely love this guitar. Mix that in with the unbeatable Thomann quality, service and, shipping and you get a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Takamine Pro Series guitars and Thomann Music!

Top class guitar!
Brenconn , 24.06.2019
I purchased my Takamine P5DC in April 2018. Right from the start this guitar has been admired and praised by all my guitar playing friends. I use the instrument principally for unplugged acoustic sessions with friends. It is a beautiful instrument, with excellent design, workmanship, finish, and sound. The onboard tuner is a great feature, and the CoolTube amp is top class. It is a heavy instrument, and I understand this is due to the CoolTube electronics on board. This is however a small criticism and is more than compensated for by all the positives with this instrument. Bravo to Takamine!

The best at its price
Phuri Au, 10.06.2019
Have been using for a few years. The sound is great especially when plugging into amp. CoolTube is really the best preamp at its price. Only concern is that it consumes battery so quick.

Alles dran an der P5DC von Takamine - und wie......
Klaus-Dieter H., 01.02.2016
Die P5DC von Takamine ist eine wunderschöne Dreadnought mit Cutaway und Tonabnehmersystem. Geliefert wird sie in einem wertigen Case.

Sound, Verarbeitung, Optik und Handling sind über jeden Zweifel erhaben, sodass ich hier - um es vorweg zu nehmen - eine klare Kaufempfehlung aussprechen kann. Die Decke besteht aus massiver Fichte, die meines Erachtens die Güte AAA hat. Wunderschön gemasert und ohne offensichtlichen Ansatz der beiden Hälften, ist die leicht vintagemäßig eingefärbte Decke eine Wohltat für die Augen. Palisander für Boden (massiv) und Zargen (laminiert), Mahagoni für den Hals und Palisander für Griffbrett und Steg runden das Gesamtbild hervorragend ab. Die Hochglanzlackierung ist makellos und die goldfarbenen Mechaniken von Gotoh verrichten ihren Dienst wie erwartet vorbildlich. Die Stegkonstruktion ist mit einer zweigeteilten Stegeinlage aus Knochen versehen, was die Intonationseigenschaften verbessert. Bridge Pins aus Kunststoff halten die Saiten. Letztere habe ich sofort gegen passende aus Knochen mit Abalone-Einlage ausgetauscht. Sieht nicht nur schicker aus, sondern ist dem Sound auch dienlich. Schöne Schallloch und Korpuseinfassungen sowie die Abalone-Griffbretteinlagen passen ebenso gut zur Gitarre wie das schicke rotbraunfarbene Perloid-Pickguard.

Takamine hat der Gitarre einen CTP-3 gegönnt, der ja bekanntlich einer der besten Preamps für Akustikgitarren überhaupt ist. Dem obligatorische Piezosound kann man stufenlos einen Röhrensound zumixen und damit dem Gesamtklang mehr Wärme, Ausgewogenheit und Dynamik verleihen. Ein sehr guter kalibrierbarer Tuner sowie ein Notchfilter sind ebenfalls vorhanden und runden das Gesamtpaket mit dem vorbildlich arbeitenden Equalizer ab. Zur Krönung des Ganzen, hat man noch die Möglichkeit des Anschlusses eines externen Pickups, was wohl in der Regel ein Schalllochtonabnehmer sein dürfte, dessen Signal man mit einem Aux-Regler ebenfalls zumischen kann. Da bleiben wirklich keine Wünsche offen. Wie man allgemein lesen kann, soll der Batterieverbrauch ziemlich hoch sein, sodass sich der Einsatz von Akkus empfiehlt.

Rein akustisch bietet die Gitarre alles, was man von einer Dreadnought erwarten kann. Satte Bässe, ausgewogene Mitten und schöne warme Höhen, die niemals schrill werden. Sehr durchsetzungsfähig das Ganze. Da hat nach meinem Geschmack die amerikanische Konkurrenz ganz schön das Nachsehen (insbesondere in diesem Preissegment). Verstärkt geht dann nochmal richtig die Sonne auf. Ich spiele die Gitarre über einen Fishman DEQ, der über ein Mischpult mit zwei Bose L1 verbunden ist. Absolute Spitzenklasse !!!

Als semiprofessioneller Gitarrist, der zwischen 50 und 70 Auftritte im Jahr bestreitet, ist mir einiges an Equipment durch die Hände gegangen. Darunter Martins, Gibsons, Lakewoods und dergleichen. Aber diese Takamine P5DC gebe ich wohl nicht mehr aus der Hand. Spitzengitarre zum Schnäppchenpreis.
