Takamine TSP178AC Thinline Acoustic-Electric Guitar – See-thru Blue Burst

6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar with Arched Flame Maple Top, Flame Maple Back and SIdes, Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, and Takamine CT-3N Electronics – See-thru Blue Burst

Thin Body, Gargantuan Tone

The Takamine Thinline TSP178AC SBB is an electric guitarist’s dream, thanks to its comfortable streamlined body and Slender C-shaped mahogany neck. What’s more, a cutaway supplies easy access to this acoustic-electric guitar’s upper frets. Enjoy ample projection and clear tonality via a stunning-looking all-maple body, while a CT-3N preamp system ensures top-shelf plugged-in tone. The Thinline TSP178AC SBB boasts an eye-catching abalone rosette and fingerboard inlays.

Flame maple yields killer looks and tone

The Thinline TSP178AC SBB’s body is constructed entirely from flame maple. Flame maple looks beautiful — there’s no denying that. As for tone, this hard, reflective wood boasts powerful projection, with impressive articulation and note separation and tight low end. What’s more, it supplies you with enough presence to pierce through the busiest of mixes and exhibits excellent string-to-string balance. Beyond that, this acoustic-electric guitar’s mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard give you a smooth and precise fretting surface while producing full, enveloping sustain.

Great-sounding CT-3N preamp system

When you take the stage with the Takamine Thinline TSP178AC SBB, you can expect top-shelf plugged-in tone, thanks to its CT-3N electronics. Created explicitly for the Thinline Series, this preamp system features a 3-band EQ for tone shaping and a notch filter for feedback elimination. You also get an onboard tuner, battery indicator, and master volume control. When you combine the CT-3N’s stellar preamplification with Takamine’s proprietary Palathetic pickup, the results are impressive.

Compact and comfortable

Large acoustic guitars are appreciated for their massive tone and extraordinary projection. That said, not everybody finds them comfortable to play; especially if they primarily play a solidbody electric. Enter the Thinline Series — these guitars enable electric players’ lower arm to rest on the instrument’s body at an angle that better accommodates their playing style. But don’t think for a minute that Thinline Series guitars lack in tone — their streamlined bodies offer excellent volume and clarity. Even when you play them unplugged, they deliver excellent projection and articulation.
