Thin Body, Gargantuan Tone

The Takamine Thinline TSP178ACK N 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-koa body, while a CT-3N preamp system ensures top-shelf plugged-in tone. The Thinline TSP178ACK N boasts an eye-catching abalone rosette and fingerboard inlays.

The Thinline TSP178ACK N’s body is constructed entirely from Hawaiian koa. Koa looks beautiful — there's no denying that. As for tone, this wood boasts the midrange of mahogany, along with the high end of maple. Take note — a new koa instrument may sound excessively bright; however, the more it’s played the more the sound will open up. Over time, your Thinline TSP178ACK N will increase in richness, sweetness, and resonance, especially for fingerstyle playing. 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 TSP178ACK N, 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. And since you're buying your new Takamine from Sweetwater's Guitar Gallery, you know the electronics have been tested and will be working for you right out of the box.
