Scottsdale, AZ (October 1, 2012) — Takamine  celebrates the introduction of its new Pro Series 3 acoustic-electric  guitars. Each Pro Series instrument is carefully hand-crafted in the  foothills of the Japanese Alps. There, dedicated craftspeople  create instruments of unique beauty and sonic excellence.

The seven new Pro Series 3 models include the P3D, P3DC, P3DC-12, P3MC, P3NC, P3NY steel-string and P3FCN classical acoustic/electric guitars.


All Pro Series 3 guitars feature a solid cedar top,  solid sapele back and sapele sides, scalloped hand-cut “X” bracing for  optimum voicing, a smooth, comfortable all-satin finish and artful wood  marquetry. All feature a mahogany neck with  rosewood fretboard, a pin-less rosewood bridge for easy string changes,  a split bone saddle for faultless intonation, and a bone nut and gold  machine heads with amber buttons. On-board electronics include the  renowned Takamine Palathetic® pickup and  the latest-generation CT4B II three-band preamplifier.

The P3D non-cutaway 6-string, P3DC cutaway 6-string, and P3DC-12 cutaway 12-string guitars provide full-size Takamine  acoustic sound, style and performance, employing resonant tone woods,  elegant appointments and state-of-the-art electronics.

The P3MC orchestra-style model offers  versatile dynamics and characteristically strong midrange with elegant  styling and smooth playability.

The P3NC delivers the finest acoustic sound,  style and performance from a classic Takamine NEX/grand  auditorium-style body with an elegant Venetian cutaway.

The performance of the P3NY “New Yorker” parlor-style acoustic belies its diminutive size by offering a clear, full-bodied voice resounding with sweetness and character.

Takamine’s long history in classical guitar construction is embodied in the P3FCN contemporary nylon string acoustic/electric, designed to  deliver classical nylon string tone in modern live and recording  environments.

MSRPs range from $1594.99 to $1724.99. For a list of authorized dealers and to learn more, visit www.takamine.com.
