The Takamine GC5CE is an exquisite electro acoustic classical guitar that is an excellent choice for beginners or experienced players. Takamine are well acclaimed for their attention to detail which contributes to an outstanding ability to build affordable guitars that play like a dream. With over 50 years of experience in crafting high quality guitars, the GC5CE is well in line with an extensive range of fantastic guitars.

Classical Body

With a classical body profile that is made up of a beautiful blend of tonewoods, and a characteristically shallow depth, the GC5CE is able to produce a rich, energetic sound that you will instantly love.

The body back and sides are crafted using Rosewood, which is renowned for its powerful, clear tones across the range of frequencies. The sparkly tones produced by the Rosewood are second to none, and this tonewood also offers a dark, striking appearance.

Complementing the rosewood body is a solid spruce top, a tonewood often favoured for the construction of soundboards because it resonates so efficiently. Fan bracing has been employed to increase the guitar’s structural integrity, as well as offering additional support and encouraging it to resonate with no limitations. The spruce tonewood projects with effortless finesse, ensuring the mid to high-end notes ring out with absolute clarity. It is also worth mentioning that spruce merely gets better with age.

Neck and Fingerboard

The GC5CE is fitted with a slim but sturdy mahogany neck via a dovetail neck joint. The neck profile is designed to be accommodating and comfortable which appeals to fingerstyle players and strummers alike. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which gives a superb playing feel as you work your way along the 18 frets.

Takamine TP-4T Preamp

In order to accurately represent the acoustic and classical tones of the guitar when played through an amp, Takamine has kitted out the GC5CE with their TP-4T preamp system. This includes master volume and tone controls, which allow you to adjust the output and mould your sound to suit your performing or playing needs. Not only that, but the TP-4T even has a 3-band EQ and a built-in tuner, so you can tune your strings with complete accuracy no matter where you are.

Hardware and Finish

A synthetic bone nut is fitted to the headstock, which, alongside the chrome tuners ensures flawless tuning accuracy. The bone saddle on the body works with the bridge to create a seamless connection between the strings and body to maintain intonation and sustain.

The GC5CE is a sensational Electro Acoustic Classical guitar by Takamine which will wow any guitarist whether you’re just starting out or are a professional.
