When you consider the various parts of the guitar, the top is clearly the most critical element. The top, in the most basic sense, acts like an air pump. The more flexible the top material, the more efficiently it translates the energy from the string into the sound waves that we hear as music. Instruments made with solid tops produce greater volume, fuller tone, and have stronger projection.
The WORTHINGTON™ series acoustics have a solid spruce top, in a package with striped mahogany sides and back for clarity and balance. Mahogany may be the best overall wood if you need an evenly balanced sound. The balance lets the serious player determine the tone by the way he plays the guitar. The soft corner bridge design helps prevent finish cracking at the corners. Grover™ tuners round out a truly professional package.
This is a USED 12 string acoustic guitar being sold in "Very Good" condition.

If there was only one style that most completely defines the traditional acoustic, it would have bold herring bone trim, slotted square fret markers, and rosewood sides and back. Oh, and don’t forget a solid top with scalloped top braces.
The CAROLINA™ series brings all of these features together in one great sounding package. We used solid cedar for the top of the Carolina because of the warmth and clarity it produces. The harmonics generated by cedar make for that sparkling clarity present in a truly professional guitar. The scalloped top braces free up the top for greater volume and a faster response. To finish off the package, rosewood is used to give the Carolina that punchy low-end response that players expect.

The Takamine TC135SC Classical Guitar features traditional Spanish design and materials as well as a number of state-of-the-art innovations. With a solid spruce top, solid rosewood back, and a soundboard bracing pattern voiced for a brilliant and rich tone, suited for todays' music. A cutaway body style provides greater fretboard access to all 24 frets! The TC135SC is adorned with traditional marquettery rosette and gold tuners. The on-board Cool Tube tube preamp with built-in chromatic tuner is one of four unique interchangeable SoundChoice preamps which provide maximum control over any performance application. Soundchoice once again demonstrates Takamines' leadership in acoustic-electric guitar amplification technology.
The CTP-1 "Cool Tube" preamp is the most significant development in "on-board" acoustic signal processing since Takamine presented the Acoustic DSP, the industry's first on-board "digital" acoustic guitar preamplifier in 1998. The Takamine CTP-1 "Cool Tube" preamp is an on-board acoustic- electric preamp that utilizes a 12AU7 dual triode vacuum tube.
The "Cool Tube" preamp 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 CTP-1 "Cool Tube" preamp, the playing will be hot, the tone will be warm, and the tube always remains cool.
Cool Tube Features:
A chromatic tuner capable of being calibrated from A438, to A445. An LED display reveals the note being played and directs the player with illuminated arrows that show sharp and flat
The EQ section utilizes a shelving, graphic EQ, which can cut or boost bass and treble frequencies. The mid range is shaped using a semi-parametric EQ section comprised of a rotary knob used to choose the mid point of the midrange frequency. The midrange frequency can be cut or boosted with the mid slider. The range of frequency covered by the rotary knob is 200hz to 8.5Khz
The tonality of the preamp is further enhanced by the use of the rotary knob labeled "Cool Tube" With this control, the player chooses the depth of effect the tube places on the signal generated by the proven Takamine "Palathetic" pickup. With this knob the player can choose from a high degree of "CUT" for aggressive strumming; expanded "sweetness" and harmonic density with fatter lows and rounder highs; or levels of rewarding richness for finger style players.
An auxiliary input jack and volume knob, which can control an additional add-on pickup of your choice. This facility can accept a magnetic sound hole pickup, or a soundboard transducer. The AUX control knob is used to blend the add-on signal with the Takamine pickup. A small switch in the back of the preamp can be used to match the varying outputs of different pickups with the preamp. The output volume slider can then control the blended signal.
Powered by 4 AA batteries, which will deliver approximately 24 hours of playing time.
