For over five decades, Takamine have been crafting guitars that are of the highest standards but are also affordable for the masses, and the GD30CE 12-String Electro Acoustic Guitar is no different. The powerful dreadnought body shape offers a bigger, fuller acoustic sound and its generous depth intensifies the guitar’s intonation making it a top choice 12-string guitar for any guitarist whether you’re a performer or not.
CLASSIC DREADNOUGHT, 12 STRINGS
The dreadnought body shape is one that has been well acclaimed over the years thanks to its considerable depth and attractive style. The depth of the dreadnought helps to produce truly fascinating sounds especially on this 12 string model. The GD30CE-12 is stage-ready but will sound just as at home in the recording studio or at home if you’re just practising.
In a similar fashion to the six string version of the GD30CE, this 12 string guitar is built using mahogany wood on the neck, back and sides which creates a superbly warm harmony with a particularly enhanced mid-range. Mahogany wood can be recognised by its quick response and enhanced intonation that often gives quite a punchy sound.
Solid spruce wood makes up the body top of the guitar and it couples well with the mahogany to create a sweet, smooth acoustic sound that will fit appropriately in a vast range of different musical genres.
The GD30CE 12 string guitar is fully equipped with the TP-4TD preamp system so that your shimmering sounds can be properly translated through an amplifier or recording gear. The TP-4TD preamp includes a built-in tuner, volume and tone controls whereby you can modify its output and signal to suit your playing preferences both on and off the stage.
One of the most favourable features of the Takamine TP-4TD preamp system is its built-in tuner, so no matter where you are you can retune your guitar at the drop of a hat with no trouble. The connection between the tuner and each of the 12 strings is firm to ensure that every note sounds pitch perfect.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The GD30CE dreadnought includes distinctive design features that complete this wonderful 12-string electro acoustic guitar. The pin-less rosewood bridge makes restringing your guitar a very simple task, and another advantage of this type of bridge is that it means you won’t end up losing any of those small pin-like teeth when you come to change the strings. The strings on the GD30CE sit comfortably and securely on the split saddle bridge, and this along with the solid spruce soundboard generates an articulate, bright sound.
The slim feel of the mahogany neck bound with the single Venetian cutaway in the guitar body allows you to play up and down the rosewood fretboard at pace whilst giving more freedom to be able to reach the upper frets. The Takamine GD30CE-12-BLK 12-String Electro Acoustic Guitar is an exquisite model with a beautiful finish that boasts a truly wonderful acoustic sound.
