Takamine’s P6JC-12 jumbo cutaway 12-string model is loud and forceful, with a resonant solid spruce top with scalloped “X” top bracing for maximum volume, a solid flame maple back and flame maple sides, a convenient Venetian cutaway for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard, and elegant ivory body binding with black and white purfling and mother-of-pearl rosette.
Built with the performer in mind, the P6JC-12 features Takamine’s proprietary CT4-DX preamp system and unique Palathetic™ under-saddle pickup for superior amplified response. The dual-channel CT4-DX provides a four-band EQ, two feedback-reducing notch-filter controls, a flexible dual-pickup mix control (for use when a second pickup is added), volume control and an onboard tuner.
Other performance-enhancing features include Takamine’s asymmetrical neck profile – which is slightly thinner on the treble side so that it fits the natural shape of your hand, resulting in a comfortable feel and improved playability. The split bone saddle provides more accurate intonation, while bridge pin positioning optimizes break angle to improve sustain and presence.
Premium design appointments include an ebony fingerboard with ivory binding and mother-of-pearl “dot-in-dot” inlays, a black headcap, gold tuners with pearl buttons, a natural bone nut and gloss natural finish. The P6JC comes complete with a premium archtop hardshell case.

The two-channel CT4-DX offers the ultimate in preamp flexibility. Used with the Palathetic® under- saddle pickup, it offers four-band EQ (low, low mid, high mid, high) and two notch filter controls to reduce feedback.
Add a second pickup (the Takamine Tri-Ax, for example), and the CT4-DX gives you independent control over both pickups, each of which will then have two-band EQ and a notch filter control. You can also alter the mix levels of each of the pickups. Other features include volume control and onboard tuner.
