Takamine have been crafting premium quality guitars for over 5 decades that are also affordable for the masses. The GN93CE may be small-bodied but it sure doesn’t compromise for sound whether amplified or played in its natural state. This electro acoustic guitar is packed with great features and has a solid construction to make sure your playing experience is second to none.
NEX BODY SHAPE
The GN93CE model is built to the Takamine 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 just slightly smaller in size when compared to a dreadnought per say. 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.
The GN93CE has a solid spruce body top with scalloped X-bracing for brilliant volume and resonance 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.
Unlike some of the other Takamine guitars, the body on the GN93CE are made up of three-piece Rosewood, and the back has a quilted maple centre which gives it a unique appearance. The combination of the body’s tonewoods produce a rich, powerful timbre on every note and every chord.
The neck is a slim profile mahogany with a beautiful rosewood 20-fret fingerboard adorned with abalone white dot inlays to guide you comfortably up and down the frets. The single cutaway in the guitar body allows for easy reach to the upper frets for those higher notes.
TAKAMINE TP-40D PREAMP ELECTRONICS
The GN93CE is equipped with the Takamine TP40D preamp system, which has a built-in tuner, EQ, volume and tone controls, as well as a really important little feature that helps you to cut out any feedback. This preamp system displays brightly so you can read it easily on a dark stage, especially when you’re retuning your strings. Once you plug into an amp, all the natural tones and sustain will be perfectly translated.
The built-in tuner is a great gadget in this preamp so wherever you are, you can retune your strings with complete ease and accuracy.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The GN93CE has an innovative split saddle bridge and synthetic bone nut which, combined with the solid spruce body top, allows you to experiment a range of sounds. The soundhole is decorated with an under-saddle pickup and dark wood rosette for a clean finish to its natural colouring. The headstock is fitted with gold die-cast tuners and slick black keys.
The GN93CE is a fantastic electro acoustic guitar with a sumptuous finish that has been crafted to produce a rich timbre whilst looking great at the same time.
