This is my review for Takamine CP7MO TT acoustic guitar.
This great new orchestra model is an addition to the new TT Series of “Thermal Top” acoustics from Takamine. The top wood is treated with high heat, to modify the resins and sugars in the wood. This imparts a played in vintage tone and feel that is surprising in a brand new instrument. The CP7MO TT is an understated “working” guitar that features solid ovangkol back and sides for a balance of lows and highs across the guitar’s spectrum. The neck is made of mahogany with an ebony fingerboard. The nut is a traditional 45mm, that is great for players of a wide variety of styles. The body and neck are bound in elegant grained ivoroid. The guitars is appointed with subtle 3mm abalone dots, an abalone rosette, and a distinctive abalonne T on the headstock. Like the other guitars in the TT Series, it features the stealthy TLD-2 Line Driver preamp and Takamine’s legendary Palathetic pickup system.
