Takamine have been a leading brand in their field for over 50 years when it comes to crafting premium quality yet affordable acoustic guitars. The GN30CE Electro Acoustic Guitar is essentially a scaled-down version of a jumbo guitar but it is packed with all of the same details and traits.
NEX BODY SHAPE
The GN30CE model is built to the NEX body frame and is similar to a scaled-down interpretation of a jumbo guitar. This body shape is sleek and easy to adapt to due to its curvaceous body which is ever so slightly smaller in size in comparison to a dreadnought. The NEX body shape helps to produce a balanced, bright sound and tone and is sometimes preferred by fingerstyle players owing to the darker, quieter tones it can give.
Takamine have built the GN30CE with a close grain mahogany wood which has a warmer and darker tone when played. The density of this type of tonewood has a physically lighter feel, and as it is used to make up the neck, back and sides it projects a punchy sound with a balanced tone and dynamic response.
The solid spruce body top combines well with the mahogany to provide a bright and clear acoustic sound that is befitting of a vast range of different musical genres. The more you play on a solid spruce guitar soundboard, it will develop its own unique timbre as the years go on.
TAKAMINE TP-4TD PREAMP ELECTRONICS
Takamine have supplied the GN30CE guitar with the fantastic TP-4TD preamp system which has a built-in tuner, volume and tone controls. This preamp system is ready to use on stage, in the studio or even just at home. When you plug your guitar into an amplifier, the TP-4TD system will translate the intonation and sustain perfectly and with plenty of volume to suit your playing needs.
The built-in tuner is a fabulous gadget in this preamp so wherever you are, you can retune your strings with complete ease without worrying about hitting any wrong notes.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The GN30CE is equipped with innovative design features such as the pin-less rosewood bridge and the split saddle bridge that sits above it. Having a pin-less bridge allows you to restring the guitar quickly and efficiently, especially if you are a performer. It also cuts out the possibility of losing those troublesome little pins when you are restringing in a rush. The split saddle bridge coupled with the solid spruce body top enhances the intonation and sustain.
The mahogany neck is slim and joins the body of the guitar beautifully just above the Venetian cutaway so you can glide up and down the rosewood fretboard with more freedom. This is a brilliantly crafted electro acoustic guitar by Takamine with a sumptuous, glossy finish.
