REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION OF
TAKAMINE PREAMPS


1
First, to release the preamp from the preamp frame, you must depress the two clips located on the inner wall of the preamp frame. This is done by inserting the Takamine preamp removal tool through the preamp slots as shown on the illustration. The clips are plastic and should release easily. Do not use excessive force as too much pressure can break the clips.




2
Once released from the frame, slide the preamp out of the guitar body. Disconnect plugs attached to the jacks on backside of the preamp. Note: to avoid damage to the wiring, do not pull the plugs out by the wire. Instead remove by grasping the plastic plug body. Install the plugs into the new preamp jacks. Takamine preamps use two different types of plugs for input and output - so an incorrect connection cannot be made.



3
When installing the new preamp, position it so that the battery compartment on the preamp is located on the side closest to the guitar neck. Slide the new preamp down into the preamp frame, until it snaps into the frame clips. Install battery and you are ready to play.
