Returns Policy



The Takamine GD71CE-BSB Electro Acoustic Guitar complete in a classic sunburst finish has crafted with top class materials to ensure that no matter what your playing capabilities, you get optimal comfort and clarity. With over 5 decades of experience in building high quality guitars, Takamine have become a very favoured name in their craft, and this delicious guitar makes it apparent as to why.

Reduced jumbo design with cutaway

The GD71CE-BSB is built to the cutaway body shape, which has always been a very popular choice. The depth of the body creates a powerful mid to low-end response, which is infused with an encapsulating warmth. Whether you're a solo player, part of a duo, accompanying an ensemble, or playing in a band, the GD71CE-BSB will shine on its own merit.

Carefully selected tonewoods

The body back and sides are constructed from rosewood, a tonewood that is favoured due to its warm and smooth energy with softened highs. Rosewood produces a driving force without becoming an overwhelming presence, making it perfect for live performance and recording situations alike.

The body top has been created from solid spruce, a bright tonewood that balances out the low-end energy of the rosewood to deliver a crispness across the high end for sparkling brilliance. As solid spruce has been employed rather than a laminate, the soundboard will mature beautifully the more than this guitar is played, enabling it to develop it's own unique tone through the years.

Neck and Fingerboard

Connected to the body of the GD71CE-BSB is a mahogany neck, which provides a strong and comfortable feel as you play. The neck has been shaped to a slim profile that works well in partnership with the satin finish to ensure as smooth a playing feel as possible. Paired with the neck is a beautiful rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20-frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to guide your way with ease.

Takamine TK-40D Preamp

The GD71CE-BSB is equipped with Takamine's TK-40D preamp system, which allows you to plug your guitar into an amp, mixing desk, and recording interface, whatever you wish. The TK-40D translates the timbre of the guitar transparently, so that whether you're playing acoustically or amped up, the same rich tones will sing out. The preamp comes complete with a built-in tuner, volume and tone controls, and a mid-cut switch.

Topped off with gold-finish tuners with pearl buttons, binding throughout, a tortoiseshell pickguard and mother of pearl rosette, the Takamine GD71CE-BSB Electro Acoustic Guitar is an instrument to treasure.
