We have an extensive collection of fine crafted guitars, and one of the largest selections of ukuleles in the world.
Come by and visit us at our shop, located in beautiful downtown Hilo, on
the Big Island of Hawaii!

We stock high quality Guitars from Takamine, ESP, Washburn, Composite Acoustics, Schecter, Oscar Schmidt, Blackbird, Cordoba, etc. We offer new and previously owned guitars.

Takamine P6N Shown Below

With Takamine’s distinctive NEX body style, the P6N is a singer’s delight, combining the power of a dreadnought with balanced tone that perfectly complements the vocal range. It features a resonant solid spruce top with scalloped “X” top bracing for superior balance and articulation, a solid flame maple back and flame maple sides, and elegant ivory body binding with black and white purfling and mother-of-pearl rosette.

Built with the performer in mind, the P6N features Takamine’s proprietary CTP-3 Cool Tube™ preamp system paired with the unique Palathetic™ under-saddle pickup for peerless amplified response. The dual-channel CTP-3 provides low-voltage tube tone, variable from bright and brilliant to thick and warm, three-band EQ with semi-parametric midrange, auxiliary input and volume (for use when a second pickup is added), and an onboard chromatic tuner.

Other performance-enhancing features include Takamine’s asymmetrical neck profile – which is slightly thinner on the bass side so that it fits the natural shape of your hand, resulting in a comfortable feel and improved playability. The split bone saddle provides more accurate intonation, while bridge pin positioning optimizes break angle to improve sustain and presence.

Premium design appointments include an ebony fingerboard with ivory binding and mother-of-pearl “snowflake” inlays, a black headcap, gold tuners with pearl buttons, a natural bone nut and gloss brown sunburst finish. The P6N comes complete with a premium archtop hardshell case.
