This slope-shoulder dreadnought is a huge-sounding guitar that incorporates a 12th fret to the body neck joint for more fullness and volume. The top is thermal spruce to impart a played-in "vintage" tone, and the slotted headstock has a cool, old-school vibe that also imparts more down-tension on the nut, so that open strings have extra clarity. Bringing that huge tone to the stage is easy with the CT4B-II onboard electronics. This guitar is a great addition to anyone's guitar arsenal.

This is an unbelievably good guitar.  I have put it head to head with my Gibson Southern Jumbo and the SJ didn't stand a chance.  The pick guard shape is still puzzling to me, but it doesn't really matter.  Of all my Taks, (and other brands I own), this CRN is my #1.  Well done again, Takamine.  Well done.
