Takamine has gained a reputation for building exceptional models at prices every player can take advantage of, and the GF15CE is a superb model that features the finest appointments.
Compact FXC Body
Takamine's FXC body profile is designed to offer a well-rounded tonality, with emphasis on articulate throughout the mids and higher frequencies, giving it a beautifully bright timbre. The body proportions are scaled-down when compared to that of a dreadnought, which makes it great for performing with and very comfortable for fingerstyle players and those with smaller hands. The Venetian-style cutaway makes it very easy to access the neck in its entirety, making it a joy for those who like to make the most of every note available to them.
The body back and sides are crafted using mahogany, which is renowned for its substantial mid to low-end energy. The powerful driving force created by mahogany infuses the timbre with warmth and consistency, providing the perfect foundation for any guitar's tone - which is particularly beneficial in the case of the scaled-down FXC body shape.
Paired with the mahogany is a spruce top, a tonewood that is revered for its ability to resonate efficiently. Spruce projects the timbre of the GF15CE with effortless grace, ensuring the mid to high-end notes ring out with absolute clarity. Finished in cool and sophisticated black, this model is perfect for intimate gigs as well as hitting bigger stages.
Neck and Fingerboard
Fitted to the body is a slender and strong mahogany neck. The neck profile is shaped to be as slim and accommodating as possible, welcoming all players with a delightfully comfortable playing feel. Paired with the neck is a gorgeous rosewood fingerboard, which carries 20-frets that are adorned with white dot position inlays.
Takamine TP-4T Preamp
In order to best represent the acoustic timbre of the guitar when played through an amp, Takamine has equipped the GF15CE-BLK their TP-4T preamp system. At your disposal are master volume and tone controls, which allow you to adjust the output level and shape your signal to suit your performing environment.
