The Takamine GD10CE-NS Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural Satin is a fantastic model that combines excellent tonewoods, solid construction, and the ability to connect to an amplifier, to give you a highly versatile - and highly affordable - guitar that is gig-ready.
The GD10CE-NS adopts the popular dreadnought body shape, a favourite of many guitarists thanks to its comfortable playing feel and powerful timbre. Thanks to the dreadnought's depth, it creates a substantial energy that is delivered with an incisive articulation. The addition of a single-cutaway makes it much more comfortable and much easier to reach the upper frets, opening up the neck to be explored in its entirety.
The body back and sides are built using mahogany, a tonewood that is revered thanks to its rich mid-range energy, generous low-end and softened highs. Mahogany also delivers exceptional warmth, which creates a very pleasing timbre.
Paired with the mahogany is a spruce top, which resonates efficiently to deliver the powerful mahogany energy with ease. Spruce is much brighter in character in comparison to the mahogany, which ensures that each note is represented clearly with a crisp and clean articulation. The combination is a well-balanced output that is presented with sparkling brilliance.
Neck and Fingerboard
Fitted to the body is a mahogany neck, which provides a stable and sturdy support to glide your hand along during performances. Thanks to the satin finish, the playing feel is smooth and eliminates tackiness from impeding your transitions along the neck. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20-frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to guide your way. The 12-inch fingerboard radius allows you to perform techniques, such as string bends, smoothly and seamlessly.
The GD10CE-NS is fitted with the Takamine TP-4T preamp system, which comes complete with a built-in tuner, volume and tone controls, and a mid-cut switch. The inclusion of the TP-4T preamp system allows you to recreate the rich acoustic response of the guitar when performing through an amplifier. Thanks to the tuner you never need to worry about being out of tune again, which the tone control and mid-cut switch allows you to shape your guitar’s output to suit your gig and playing environment.
Hardware and Finish
The body is equipped with a sturdy and resilient bridge, which creates a secure connection between the strings and body to optimise intonation and sustain. The tuning machines apply a firm hold to each string, upholding tuning integrity precisely throughout each and every performance.
The Takamine GD10CE-NS Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural Satin is the perfect model for a beginner who wants a model that is great to learn on and grow with, and gigging guitarists who are looking for an affordable model to take along to gigs.
