Takamine have been designing affordable but premium quality acoustic guitars for over the last five decades that suit any budding guitarist. The Takamine GD30CE-NAT Electro Acoustic Guitar in a Natural finish has a sturdy, signature dreadnought body which has been a popular choice for musicians over the years.
DYNAMIC DREADNOUGHT BODY
The GD30CE-NAT has one of the most popular body shapes of all when it comes to acoustic guitars. The dreadnought body shape is a classic style with round shoulders and the body joining the neck at the 14th fret. The depth of a dreadnought body leads to its articulate tone and resonant sound. The GD30CE-NAT is visibly attractive and offers great playability for any guitarist.
The neck, back and sides are constructed using mahogany wood to project a punchy tone and rich, warm sound. By using mahogany wood it gives this electro acoustic guitar a physically lighter feel and a quick response. Mahogany is a denser type of tonewood with a darker tone than the likes of cedar wood.
The GD30CE model has a solid spruce body top, thus combined with the mahogany it gives a bright resonant timbre with an enhanced mid-range. Generally, spruce soundboards are a good all-rounder and offer plenty of volume and intonation.
TAKAMINE TP-4TD PREAMP ELECTRONICS
The Takamine GD30CE has been accommodated with the TP-4TD preamp system which does not compromise on sound whether it is plugged in or not. This preamp includes a built-in tuner, volume and tone controls, so whether you’re playing live or recording in the studio you can amend the output and signal to suit your playing needs.
The built-in tuner has a firm connection with each of the strings on the GD30CE to ensure that each note is totally accurate. No matter where you take your guitar, you can be assured that retuning the strings will be a doddle.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
A commonplace feature for the Takamine acoustic guitars is the pin-less rosewood bridge combined with the split saddle bridge. By not having pins to secure the strings, this makes restringing your guitar a much easier process and you won’t go losing those little teeth like pins every time you need to change a broken string. The split saddle bridge connects beautifully with the strings and guitar body which subsequently intensifies the intonation on the whole.
The mahogany neck is slim and with the soft Venetian style cutaway in the body you can glide up and down the 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with ease. The GD30CE is a well-crafted electro acoustic guitar from Takamine which will appeal to the guitar-playing masses.
