Tokai Terra Nova K5 Model Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (Bourbon Fade Natural Gloss)
The Tokai Terra Nova series signals a revolution in acoustic-electric guitar functionality and performance.
Crafted to Tokai’s exacting standards, the Terra Nova series boasts exquisite quality and design, resulting in a guitar that is not just sonically beautiful, but also aesthetically.
A combination of old world style, traditional construction methods, beautiful tone woods and ground-breaking technology, the Terra Nova series provides guitarists with an instrument that not only excels acoustically, but which produces the most truthful and transparent amplified tone available today.
The secret to the Terra Nova’s breathtaking amplified tone lies in the one of a kind Supernatural pickup system, developed by the legendary modern guitar innovator, Brad Clark.
Brad Clark’s Supernatural pickup system was developed to overcome the limitations of traditional analogue pickup systems, and create a pickup that accurately reproduces the tonal complexity of acoustic guitars – resulting in an amplified tone so natural, it’s supernatural.
Unlike traditional single piezo pickup systems, the Supernatural pickup utilises six large cylindrical piezos mounted under the bridge plate, allowing the guitars individual “woody” tonal characteristics to be accurately reproduced. Each Supernatural pickup is tuned using specialty EQ filters which take into account the guitars body shape, timbers and finish, resulting in four unique “soundscapes” which users can scroll between with a click of a button.
In addition to the pre-programmed soundscapes, Supernatural pickups feature four independent sliders, each slider providing users with control over a section of the analogue 3-Band graphic EQ (bass, mid-range and top end), and master volume.
The Terra Nova K5 range produces the complex, harmonically rich tones synonymous with koa - offering flat-pickers and finger-style players alike with exquisite top end sparkle, controlled bass and extended mid-range response.
With the Terra Nova series, Tokai haven't just discovered a new land, they've helped create it.
