The Takamine GD30CE-12-NAT 12-String Electro Acoustic Guitar is fantastic value for money without compromising on all the premium features and details that you would expect from a high quality 12-string guitar. With a powerful dreadnought body and double the strings, the GD30CE-12 boasts a fuller, larger acoustic sound and a real depth in tone. Takamine have been building superior guitars for over five decades whilst keeping them at an affordable price to appeal to guitarists of any level.
CLASSIC DREADNOUGHT, 12 STRINGS
The Takamine GD30CE-12 sports the classic dreadnought body frame that has been admired by guitarists for so many years. The dreadnought shape offers more depth which generates a magnitude of vibrant sounds and tones. This 12-string model is ready for the stage or studio and will project a rich, powerful timbre thanks to its unique, dreadnought design.
Similar to the six string version of this G Series model, the GD30CE-12 is constructed with mahogany wood on its neck, back and sides which produces a sumptuous, warm melody with a resonant mid-range. Mahogany is a physically lighter type of tonewood that consequently offers a dynamic response and a consistent tonal range on the whole.
The solid spruce body top links really well with the mahogany to provide a bright and clear acoustic sound that can be versatile enough for any musical genre. The more you play on a solid spruce top guitar will allow it to develop its own unique sound as the years go by.
Takamine have supplied the 12-string GD30CE with an onboard TP-4TD preamp system which includes a built-in tuner, volume and tone controls so that you can adjust the signal and output of your guitar when it is plugged into either an amplifier or recording equipment. This advanced preamp system is stage and studio ready and is competent enough to work to your playing needs.
The TP-4TD preamp system has a built-in tuner so that wherever you are, you can retune your 12-string with no difficulties. The tuner holds a strong and separate connection to each of the guitar strings to ensure the utmost accuracy of every note or chord.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The 12-string GD30CE dreadnought features some exclusive Takamine design features to top off what is an excellent electro acoustic guitar. The pin-less rosewood bridge makes restringing your guitar much more straightforward, while it also means that you won’t end up losing any of those troublesome little pins of old. The split saddle bridge offers an articulate sound and tone which marries up exquisitely with the solid spruce soundboard.
The mahogany neck is slim, even for a 12-string guitar, and joins up magnificently with the single Venetian cutaway in the body so that you can glide up and down the rosewood fingerboard and reach the upper frets more freely. The Takamine GD30CE-12-NAT 12-String Electro Acoustic Guitar is a luxurious instrument that offers a variety of sparkling, warm notes whilst looking visibly attractive at the same time.
