Over half a century ago, Takamine began building top quality acoustic guitars at the foot of the Takamine mountains in Japan. Since then, Takamine have become a recognisable brand all over the world thanks to their affordable but premium range of acoustic guitars. With a powerful dreadnought profile, the GD11MCE is another fantastic instrument from the Takamine G Series.
POWERFUL DREADNOUGHT BODY
The GD11MCE is built to the conventional but powerful Takamine dreadnought profile which gives this guitar a considerable amount of depth which in turn allows this model to resonate with high energy. The dreadnought body is one of the most instantly recognisable shapes in guitar history, and the GD11MCE has a clear frequency range that is enhanced by its body frame.
MAJESTIC MAHOGANY TONEWOOD
Takamine have taken great care in putting the GD11MCE together by employing mahogany tonewood for the body, back and sides. They have also used quartersawn X bracing in the body top which is a technique that gives the guitar extra stability while also relieving some of the weight and allowing the guitar to vibrate more openly for a great sound balance. The mahogany top also gives the GD11MCE a sweet, resonant overall tone with an enunciated mid-range and clear top end.
Joined to the body is a smooth mahogany neck which feels comfortable to play no matter the genre. Married to the neck is the 20-fret rosewood fingerboard which is decorated with dot position inlays to guide you up and down the neck, and combined with the single cutaway in its dreadnought body, you can reach those upper frets with no problem.
TAKAMINE TP4T ONBOARD ELECTRONICS
Making this a fantastic electro acoustic guitar is the onboard Takamine TP4T preamp system with built-in tuner. This preamp also includes features such as the EQ with bass, middle and treble frequency controls and a gain knob for distortion output. There is also a handy low battery indicator to make sure you know when to switch off.
The built-in tuner ensures that your guitar keeps tuning integrity with every note, and is a convenient helper whenever you need to retune your strings. You can go anywhere and be sure that you won’t hit a wrong note.
The Takamine GD11MCE has a stunning Natural Satin finish complete with soundhole rosette and a black pickguard to protect from scratches or dirt beneath the soundhole. This is a fantastic electro acoustic guitar that would suit any guitarist, whether a beginner or professional.
