From the first steps Takamine PT 007 impressed to many country guitarists in Nashville (Ray Cooder was one of the major users) for it big and clear sound on any stage from small club to stadiums.

Way back in 1979, Takamine introduced the PT-007S model. Inside that guitar was a very effective, pickup.
Dubbed the ‘Palathetic’ pickup (no, I haven’t a clue what it means), it changed games. A decent amplified sound with an impressive resistance to feedback meant the Takamine made an appearance on a lot of stages around the world.
The Palathetic pickup is a proprietary Takamine design and, though it shares a (very) basic construction with other piezo pickups, it differs considerably in a number of ways.
With those much bigger piezo elements, Takamine claim a more dynamic system, allowing for good output on quiet or hard strumming.
And, because the whole unit is essentially squeezed together by those mounting screws, it’s very efficient at actually transferring those string vibrations to the piezo. String-to-string balance is typically less of a problem than it can be in other UST designs.
That big hunk of metal housing all the internals is grounded, so it acts as a very effective shield to keep nasty environmental EMI and RFI away from the sensitive bits.
Each piezo element also has a metal shield cap that contacts the metal strip at top. Remember that strip is screwed to the metal housing and is, therefore, electrically connected to it.
All of this extends the shielding over the top and along much of the sides of the piezo elements.
The coupling between pickup and the guitar top is minimised as much as passible. Two screw points are connected to the soundboard but the elements themselves pass through holes to contact against the saddle.

Because the guitar top will resonate as you play, isolating the pickup from the top reduces the danger of feedback. Hanging the unit in this way makes for a much more feedback-resistant instrument.
