Returns Policy



The Takamine GD71CE Electro Acoustic Guitar has been crafted using carefully selected tonewoods to create a guitar that is ideal for beginners, gigging guitarists, and highly experienced players too. With over 50 years’ experience in building high quality guitars, Takamine have become a highly respected name in their craft of delivering solidly built models with premium features, but with a modest price tag.

Popular cutaway design

The GD71CE 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 will shine on its own merit.


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 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 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.

Finally, the Takamine GD71CE comes fully garnished with gold-finished tuning machines complete with beautiful pearl buttons, a tortoise-shell pick guard and an inlaid mother-of-pearl rosette to give this extraordinary guitar the regal visage it deserves. Whatever your playing level, this is a guitar that you will love to play for many years.
