I bought this guitar new approximately a year and a half ago. It is in great condition with the following:
1. I replaced the saddle to improve intonation and action with a hand carved bone saddle. See Picture 3. This pic also gives you the best idea on the wood grain.
2. The action is low for a nylon string without buzzing. See picture 4.
3.There are a few very small dings which cause no structural or barely cosmetic issues.
4. The finish appears more polished south of the soundhole where I sometimes rest my fingers. There is no wear however. It is just a bit more shiny.
This is a very nice guitar and comes with the stock Takamine hard shell case.
The glare in the photos is from the flash. THis is not indicative of the finish.
Takamine P3FCN Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar
Takamine’s long history in traditional classical guitar construction manifests itself in the P3FCN contemporary nylon string acoustic/electric, designed to deliver classic nylon string tone in modern live and recording environments. The solid cedar top features hand-scalloped X bracing and ivory binding, with dark purfling and a gorgeous concentric-ring rosette with wood marquetry. An elegant Venetian cutaway offers optimum access to the upper registers. The unique Takamine split-saddle bone bridge provides faultless intonation and excellent acoustic coupling to the top. Other premium features include a solid sapele back, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard with wood “dot-in-dot” inlays, gold tuners with amber buttons, natural satin finish and the highly acclaimed CT4B II preamp system with three-band EQ, volume control and built-in tuner.
The core element behind the amplified superiority of Takamine acoustic electric guitars is the proprietary Palathetic™ pickup.Using six individually shielded piezo-electric elements, one for each string, the Palathetic™ pickup is not a just a UST (under saddle transducer). In fact, the Takamine design employs twelve times the element mass of the typical under saddle pickup. The six elements penetrate the bridge plate, soundboard, and bridge to make direct contact with the saddle, creating a sonic linkage with the string. The pickup casing is mechanically attached to the guitars top and bridge, creating a sonic linkage with the soundboard. The result of this design is a signal that possesses the articulation of an isolated string signal and the rich harmonic content delivered by the resonating soundboard for a full, complete and accurate acoustic guitar tone at high sound pressure levels.Takamine Pro Series P3FCN Acoustic-electric Nylon-string Guitar Features:FXC cutaway; scalloped X-braced solid cedar top, solid sapele back, sapele laminate sides African Mahogany Neck with bound rosewood fingerboard, 20 nickel-silver frets, wood dot-in-dot inlays Ivory binding, dark (wood trim) purfling, concentric rings with wood marquetry rosette Rosewood bridge, split bone saddle, bone nut Ivory back binding, mahogany peghead with gold logo Takamine CT4B II electronics onboard Satin top, neck, back, and sides Machine Heads: gold with amber buttonsThere are no returns unless there is a shipping damage issue.
