Takamine have been designing premium quality acoustic guitars at affordable prices since the early 1960s, and the GB72CE Electro Acoustic Bass Guitar is no exception to the rule. Whether you’re an acoustic guitarist, a bassist, or even a beginner, this Takamine is a worthy musical partner. Supplied with an on-board preamp system and built-in tuner, the GB72CE acoustic bass is fit for the stage or recording studio.


It goes without saying that any song or composition is given a strong backbone whenever the bass is added. This electro acoustic bass offers low end resonance and an extra warm layer to help give any musical piece added intensity.

Takamine have built the GB72CE to a jumbo profile using flame maple in the back and sides, combined with a solid spruce top, which work together to produce powerful, flawless resonance and warm sustain. The depth of the jumbo shape acoustic bass gives off a resounding volume.

A special technique has been adopted when constructing this bass guitar, and this is known as X-bracing. This feature is underneath the soundhole inside the guitar’s body and it helps add flavour to the overall sound of the bass whilst also strengthening the instrument. This type of construction allows the guitar to resonate freely and with considerable volume. Whether you’re plugged into an amp or not, the GB72CE offers considerable volume and a full-bodied, rich timbre.

The slim maple neck is firmly attached to the body and its slender profile means you can glide up and down at a pace with ease. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood 21-fret fingerboard decorated with pearl dot inlays to keep you on the right track.


The GB72CE is fully kitted out with the Takamine TK-40D preamp system and built-in chromatic tuner. More features of this preamp include a three-band EQ and gain controls so you can adjust the output to suit your playing needs. The TK-40B acoustic bass preamp also includes mid-shift control, bass-boost switch and EQ bypass switch so you can fully customise your sound to suit your environment. The built-in chromatic tuner allows you to retune your strings with confidence without the worry of hitting a wrong note.


In order for you to be able to get a fantastic overall sound with a range of fluid tones, the GB72CE is equipped with a split saddle bridge and synthetic bone nut which allows you to do just that. To complete the look, the soundhole is decorated with an abalone rosette and the body is given a lustrous gloss finish.

The GB72CE is another aesthetically pleasing but very well-made electro acoustic bass guitar from Takamine which will fit perfectly into anyone’s guitar collection.
