Takamine have over five decades of experience when it comes to crafting high quality acoustic guitars that are affordable for any guitarist at any proficiency level. The GX11ME model is a three-quarter size guitar thus its size makes it ideal for smaller players as well as being easy to travel with. However, do not fear, although this is guitar is petite in size, it does not compromise on still producing a fantastic, rich sound that we all cherish in a Takamine.
NEX BODY SHAPE
The three-quarter size GX11ME guitar has the Takamine NEX body frame which is often compared to a scaled-down jumbo. Its shape is easy to adapt to and its curves are all part and parcel of its stunning appearance. The NEX shape combined with the tonewood contributes to a projection of versatile tones with plenty of volume making this model ready for the stage or recording studio.
Takamine have employed mahogany tonewood for the GX11ME which is known for its density, as well as giving the guitar that wonderfully natural finish. The consistency 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 body top has also been constructed using mahogany, so combined with the back and sides this produces a really warm sound which is rich in depth and tone.
Joined to the body is a smooth mahogany neck and thanks to the accompanying 42mm nut it is ever so comfortable to play. Married to the neck is a sumptuous 21-fret rosewood fingerboard decked out with dot position inlays to guide you along the frets with ease and confidence.
TAKAMINE TP4T PREAMP SYSTEM
Takamine have kitted out the GX11ME three-quarter size guitar with the TP4T preamp system which has a built-in tuner, EQ with bass, middle and treble frequency controls and a gain knob. There is also a handy low battery indicator to make sure you know when to switch off. Although this guitar is smaller in size, it still offers a big acoustic sound all thanks to this great preamp system.
You also do not need to hesitate about retuning your strings because the built-in tuner will help ensure tuning accuracy on every note.
The GX11ME is a beautiful three-quarter size electro acoustic guitar that has been made accessible for any guitarist. It is perfect for any gigging guitarist no matter where you’re headed but it is also comfortable enough for a smaller player.
