Takamine acoustic guitars are real working instruments, ideal for singer-songwriters and to stand out in the amplified band. They are robust and refined to face life on the road and in the studio. Its longstanding dedication to innovation and continuous improvement has made it one of the world’s best acoustic guitar manufacturers.
The humble beginnings date back to 1959 when it was a small family-run shop, located at the foot of Mount Takamine, in the centre of the Japanese city of Sakashita. This company, still in its infancy, took the name of the mountain in 1962 and set out on the journey towards an incredible success that is the modern company Takamine.

Takamine Acoustic Electrified
A Pro Series electrified acoustic Takamine like the P7DC Dreadnought is built with the utmost care on the hills of the Japanese Alps, where passionate craftsmen make these instruments of excellent workmanship. Each guitar has the best seasoned wood and is made from a combination of modern woodworking techniques and traditional hand work. In addition, each guitar has an elegant appearance and the highest precision that comes from the experience of violinmaking.
Pro Series 7 guitars are designed for professional guitarists. They feature solid spruce tops, rosewood back and sides. For a rich and distinct sound. Beautiful flamed maple bodies and handles, neck bindings, 12″ radius ebony keyboards with elegant abalone inlays in the characteristic snowflake shape. Bridge saddle divided into two parts for perfect intonation, golden hardware. And the CTP-3 CoolTube preamp for unparalleled amplified performance.
The CTP-3 CoolTube is the first and only integrated tube preamp for acoustic guitar. It produces a rich and full sound. It takes its name from the innovative Takamine technology that manages a 12AU7 glass valve with very low voltage, so low that it remains cold to the touch, with the possibility of modelling the sound from clear and bright to big and warm.
The Equalizer section uses Shelving filters for high and low frequency adjustments, and also offers semi-parametric control for the mid frequencies. A control knob adjusts the frequency from 250Hz to 5kHz, and an integrated chromatic tuner with millimetric precision is standard equipment. Another feature is the mid and high cut selector for a second pickup.
