The GN30CE Electro Acoustic Guitar in Black by Takamine is a small version of a jumbo that does not compromise on the exquisite detail and sound that you would get from a full size jumbo. Takamine have been designing exceptional guitars over the last five decades that reach high standards but do not cost a fortune, so you don’t have to break the bank for a good guitar model.
NEX BODY FRAME
The GN30CE model is built to the NEX body frame and is similar to a scaled-down version of a jumbo guitar. The NEX body is curvy and thanks to its more condensed size, it is easy to adapt to even for smaller guitar players. This body frame offers a rich timbre with a balanced tone that translates well when strumming or finger-picking, giving a clear-cut sound overall.
Every tonewood has its own distinct qualities depending on where it is used in the guitar’s structure. Takamine have employed a close grain mahogany tonewood for the neck, back and sides of the GN30CE model. Mahogany is a denser wood with a lighter feel which gives it a warm, soft sound but with a bite when you need it. It is also known for offering a quick and dynamic response for a defined character and tone.
Joined with the mahogany neck, back and sides is the solid spruce top which is one of the most popular types of tonewood used on guitar soundboards. Solid spruce projects a bright acoustic sound with plenty of volume, and it gets better with age the more you play.
TAKAMINE TP-4TD PREAMP SYSTEM
The GN30CE model is equipped with the Takamine TP-4TD preamp system which switches on when you plug in your guitar. This system is ready to use on the stage or in the studio and will accurately pull through the beautiful tones and clarity whether you are recording, practising or performing. The preamp has a built-in tuner, volume and tone controls to suit your playing needs.
The built-in tuner in this preamp provides you with peace of mind wherever you go as you can retune your guitar with ease and accuracy.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The Takamine GN30CE has some really accommodating features to make the sound crystal clear but the shape also adds to its playability.
The pin-less rosewood bridge eliminates the possibility of losing any of the pins that hold the strings in on other models, and it also facilitates the restringing process. In addition to this, the strings sit securely on the split saddle bridge which enunciates the intonation beautifully whether the guitar is amped up or unplugged.
The slim mahogany neck guarantees great playability and comfort when playing up and down the slick rosewood fretboard. The single cutaway shape in the body allows you to reach the upper frets with more freedom. This superb model is a versatile electro acoustic guitar with a great, gloss finish.
