The Takamine 2012C Limited Edition acoustic-electric classical guitar is a richly resonant and darkly beautiful cutaway classical guitar the very first limited edition nylon-string model in Takamine history, in fact. Features include a distinctive oval sound-hole surrounded by an elegant gold rosette, beautiful spreading-vine design motif, high-grade solid spruce top and solid rosewood back for brilliant tone and impressive projection, mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, gold machine heads, and onboard Palathetic pickup and CTP-2 CoolTube preamp for exemplary presence and performance.
After over two years of research and design time, Takamine has once again demonstrated their leadership in acoustic-electric guitar amplification technology.
The Cool Tube preamp introduced at the January 2004 NAMM show in Anaheim, California is the most significant development in on-board acoustic signal processing since Takamine presented the Acoustic DSP, the industrys first on-board digital acoustic guitar preamplifier in 1998. The Takamine Cool Tube preamp is an on-board acoustic- electric preamp that utilizes a 12AU7 dual triode vacuum tube. The Cool Tube packs a huge amount of features and amazing tone into a compact package that fits neatly into Takamines SoundChoice docking port. The Cool Tube preamp joins a range of five distinctly different preamps that are all interchangeable, giving the Takamine player several great options to fit their personal style and taste.
The Cool Tube preamp gets its name from Takamines unique and new technology that runs the Tube at very low voltages, therefore the tube does not glow or produce high levels of heat. The tube actually runs at only two or three degrees above ambient, so there is no concern over the delicate tone woods being affected by radiant heat. With the Takamine Cool Tube preamp, the playing will be hot, the tone will be warm, and the tube always remains cool.
