Built from the ground up to be brilliantly different.

The cutaway Takamine TAN15C Supernatural Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Cool Tube Preamp puts a twist on the usual dreadnought sound with a beautiful solid cedar top, precision-scalloped bracing, and a solid rosewood back for a distinct tonal difference. The rosewood fingerboard is inlay-free for a very clean look. The simple appearance is tastefully enhanced by a skillfully inlaid abalone rosette and gold tuners with amber pearl buttons.

The Cool Tube Preamp (CTP-1) provides a cornucopia of tonal tools for rich piezo sounds. A revolutionary development straight from Takamine, The CTP-1 is an onboard acoustic-electric preamp that uses a 12AU7 dual triode vacuum tube for a touch of tube sparkle and magic. The Cool Tube gets its name from unique technology that runs the tube at very low voltages; therefore the tube does not glow or produce high levels of heat (2-3 degrees above ambient).

Takamine players will find a useful array of features in the CTP-1 to enhance their recording or live performance applications, including a chromatic tuner, shelving, graphic EQ, semiparametric midrange EQ, and a rotary Cool Tube control that selects the effect the tube places on the signal coming from the proven Palathetic pickup. There is also an auxiliary input jack and volume knob for control of an additional pickup. The AUX control knob is used to blend the add-on signal with the Takamine pickup, and a small switch in the back of the preamp can be used to match the varying outputs of different pickups with the preamp. The CTP-1 is powered by 4 AA batteries, which will deliver approximately 24 hours of playing time.

The CTP-1 fits neatly into the exclusive Takamine SoundChoice docking port, making it easy to choose from six distinctly different preamps, giving you several great options to fit your personal style and taste. Includes a Takamine hardshell case.

This guitar is without a doubt, the best sounding guitar that I have ever played. It has that great trademark Takamine sound and when played you realize that you have a professional, stage quality guitar.

High-end tool for serious players

By Pershing Wells

Comments about Takamine TAN15C Supernatural Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Cool Tube Preamp:

I did research on an acoustic guitar for 3 months prior to purchasing. I narrowed the brands to about a dozen. I knew what I wanted to spend on a good acoustic guitar. I played on 30 or so different guitars and chose this one. The preamp is as good as anything I've heard on any record. If you're a professional and especially if you want a guitar for strumming with a pick, this is an excellent choice. I regard it as a high-emd addition to my musical instrument tool box.

Absolutely Amazing

By Steve-TLCTb

from NW Arkansas

Comments about Takamine TAN15C Supernatural Series Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Cool Tube Preamp:

This guitar is a true work of art. Everything about it, from the abalone rosette, to the gold/amber tuning machines, is beautiful. The tone is even better than the aesthetics. It has great action, and the Solid Cedar Top with its rosewood sides produce a very mature sound with that distinctive Takamine tone. This is a great buy. The CoolTube Pre-Amp sounds phenomenal, adding brilliance and depth to the already great natural tone and is an excellent addition to the Takamine line of Sound Choice pickups
