Takamine have spent over 50 years crafting high quality acoustic guitars that offer all of the premium features for a fraction of the usual price range, so musicians of any level can afford to treat themselves to a high-end guitar that is stage-ready. The GF30CE takes on the FXC body profile which is a more compact version of a Grand Concert guitar. The FXC gives an entirely natural acoustic tonality whilst feeling comfortable to play.
FXC GRAND CONCERT BODY
The GF30CE guitar takes on the FXC body frame that is most similar to the Grand Concert type guitar with a soft Venetian cutaway in the body. The body feels compact which makes it more accessible for smaller guitarists. For people who most enjoy finger-picking notes then the FXC body is the perfect choice; its curved contours stays close to the body which leaves the right hand in the perfect position to pick freely. The GF30CE has a rich and true tonality and a balance of warm, sweet sounds across the ranges.
MAHOGANY AND SOLID SPRUCE
Takamine have employed a combination of mahogany and solid spruce tonewood to project an articulate sound with a driving delivery that sounds amazing whether it’s plugged in or not. Mahogany works well with the Grand Concert style shape and the density of this tonewood guarantees a rich and varied timbre across the frequencies. Mahogany wood makes up the neck, back and sides of the GF30CE which makes up the foundation of the guitar and provokes warm tones when played.
The solid spruce top combines beautifully with mahogany, and these two tonewoods are often used in conjunction with one another to produce that distinguished, smooth Takamine acoustic sound which improves the more you play.
TAKAMINE TP-4TD PREAMP ELECTRONICS
Onboard the GF30CE guitar is the Takamine TP-4TD preamp system and built-in tuner, volume and tone controls. The preamp system interprets the guitar’s original tones and transparently demonstrates them once it is plugged into an amplifier or recording equipment. You can adjust the tone and volume to suit your playing needs using the integrated preamp.
The built-in tuner is a must-have gadget for an electro acoustic guitar, the TP-4TD prevents you hitting any wrong notes since you can retune the strings wherever you are.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The Takamine GF30CE possesses a pin-less rosewood bridge to enable you to restring the guitar efficiently, especially if you are in a hurry. It also cuts out the chance of losing those small troublesome pins that can sometimes be used to hold the strings in place. The innovative split saddle bridge gives the overall intonation a boost to offer a rich, clear timbre.
The soft Venetian cutaway allows you to effortlessly access the upper frets when reaching for the higher notes. Joining the body is the slim mahogany neck which is coupled with the elaborate rosewood fretboard.
Takamine have built a spectacular electro acoustic guitar in the GF30CE model which will please guitarists of all divisions and styles.
