The Takamine GN15CE Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural finish is a wonderfully scaled down version of a jumbo size guitar which is more than adequate for recording or gigging. With over 50 years of experience crafting fine guitars, Takamine create sturdy, well-built models which are both affordable and of premium quality in sound and appearance.
NEX Body Style
The Takamine GN15CE has a NEX style body shape which is similar to a jumbo guitar but scaled down to make it feel more comfortable to play, yet it still has all the rich features and tones of a full size jumbo. This model offers huge depth in tonality which projects articulate and energetic sound for that big acoustic feel. The NEX body shape has a delicately balanced tone for a beautifully bright sound. Whether you prefer fingerpicking or strumming with a plectrum, this model has an accomplished, crystal clear sound. The GN15CE is easy to pick up and play and is the perfect size guitar regardless of whether you prefer sitting or standing.
In order for the GN15CE to provide a rich timbre, Takamine constructed this guitar using various types of wood. Its back and sides are made up of gloss Rosewood, a tonewood which is visibly appealing and provides a range of deluxe sounds from bursting bass to warm, characteristic mids and punchy highs to finish.
The spruce body top is one of the most commonly used types of tone wood for the soundboard. It produces a bright, resonant sound and works smoothly alongside the Rosewood back and sides. Spruce tonewood ensures articulate intonation throughout the various frequencies to generate a rich and powerful acoustic voice.
Takamine have supplied the TP-4TD preamp system in the GN15CE guitar to allow you to plug it into an amp or recording equipment without losing its rich tones or compromising on sound.
The TP-4TD preamp system includes a built-in tuner, volume and tone controls so you can adjust the output level to suit your playing whether you’re performing or just practising. Thanks to the built-in tuner, you can take your GN15CE electro acoustic guitar anywhere with you and you won’t ever have to worry when it comes to re-tuning your strings.
Hardware and Finish
Takamine have equipped the GN15CE with a split saddle bridge that differentiates this brand of guitar from many others. The connection between the strings and the guitar body enhances acoustic sustain and intonation to offer the best sound at every performance.
The neck of the GN15CE is made of solid mahogany which is sumptuously paired with a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard. The slim neck is appealing for all guitarists, beginners or professionals, as it’s so easy and enjoyable to slide along from one note to the next. For those who want to experiment and play impressive solos, the single cutaway finish allows you to reach the upper frets with no trouble.
The built-in tuner administers each individual string firmly to maintain a precise harmony every time.
