Everything about the P5DC from Takamine - and how ......

Klaus-Dieter H., 01.02.2016
The P5DC from Takamine is a gorgeous dreadnought with cutaway and pickup system. It is delivered in a valuable case.

Sound, processing, optics and handling are beyond any doubt, so I can here - to take it for granted - a clear purchase recommendation. The ceiling consists of solid spruce, which in my opinion has the quality AAA. Beautifully textured and without obvious approach of the two halves, the slightly vintage-colored blanket is a delight for the eyes. Palisander for ground (solid) and sides (laminated), mahogany for the neck and rosewood for the fretboard and bridge round out the overall picture. The high-gloss finish is immaculate and the gold-colored mechanics of Gotoh perform as expected. The bridge construction is provided with a bipartite baffle, which improves the intonation properties. Bridge pins of plastic hold the strings. The latter I have immediately exchanged for bones with an abalone insert. Looks not only more chic, but is also useful to the sound. Beautiful soundhole and body brackets as well as the Abalone gripboards fit just as well to the guitar as the chic red-brown perloid pickguard.

Takamine has given the guitar a CTP-3, which is known to be one of the best preamps for acoustic guitars at all. The obligatory piezo sound can be smoothly mixed with a tube sound, giving the overall sound more warmth, balance and dynamism. A very good calibrated tuner as well as a notch filter are also available and round the entire package with the model working equalizer. To crown the whole, one has the possibility of connecting an external pickup, which is usually a soundhole pickup, whose signal can also be added with an aux controller. There are really no wishes left open. As one can read generally, the battery consumption should be quite high, so the use of rechargeable batteries is recommended.

Pure acoustic, the guitar offers everything you can expect from a dreadnought. Full bass, balanced mid-range and beautiful warm heights that never get shrill. Very powerful the whole. Because to my taste the American competition has quite the look (especially in this price segment). Reinforced then goes again the sun. I play the guitar over a Fishman DEQ, which is connected via a mixer with two Bose L1. Absolute top class !!!

As a semiprofessional guitarist, who contests between 50 and 70 performances a year, a lot of equipment went through my hands. Including Martins, Gibsons, Lakewoods and the like. But this Takamine P5DC I probably no longer out of hand. Top guitar at bargain price.

OF THE NECTAR

Philippe431, 27.03.2014
I am not basically an acoustic guitarist but the ease and sound of this guitar is phenomenal soon for more praise on this marvel.
I'm back after months of play and well my opinion and that of my friends is that this guitar is a top, any strings strings will lessen it improves
With the time thanks to the solid spruce of its table contrary to the cedar which remains good but static to him.
C is a high-end that does not suffer from any criticism and takamine fight against the Americans with panache with tighter prices.
I have rarely heard anyone disappointed with this brand.
