By employing superb tonewoods, appointing resilient hardware, and equipping this model with impeccable electronics, Takamine have shown off their expertise in style. Whether you're new to the guitar and looking for a model that will grow with your ability, or are a seasoned player who demands reliability, the GD15CE-BLK is a fantastic model that shines in the studio and on the stage.
Powerful Dreadnought Body
The GD15CE-BLK is shaped to the powerful dreadnought body shape, which has been revered by guitarists the world over for decades. Thanks to its generous body depth, the tonewoods are able to resonate and generate a confident timbre that is projected enthusiastically. The solid construction of this model ensures that the dreadnought retains its customary strength and stability, making it a joy to perform with both for strummers and fingerstyle players. Whether you're a solo performer, part of a duo, accompanying an ensemble, or playing in a band, the dreadnought is powerful enough to shine all on its own, but is equally at home when playing with others.
Takamine has employed mahogany with the task of generating a low-end energy with plenty of warmth. Mahogany works well with the dreadnought body shape to produce a driving delivery, with a tight midrange that reinforces the tonal depth of this model. The body top has been crafted from solid spruce, a bright-sounding tonewood that balances out the low-end energy of the mahogany, infusing crispness and clarity into each and every note for sparkling brilliance. As solid spruce has been employed rather than a laminate, the soundboard will mature and develop a unique timbre the more it is played.
Neck and Fingerboard
Mahogany has been used to create a stable and supportive neck, with a slender profile that is combined with a satin finish to create a lightning fast playing feel. Beginners will be inspired by the confident playing feel offered by the neck, whilst more experienced players will relish running the hands along it with ease. The addition of a Venetian-style cutaway enables greater upper fret access.
Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard with 20 perfectly formed frets. White dot position inlays guide your way in style, whilst the 12-inch fingerboard radius allows you to perform techniques, such as string bends, smoothly and seamlessly.
Takamine TP-4T Preamp
In order to best represent the acoustic timbre of the guitar when played through an amp, Takamine has equipped the GD15CE-BLK their TP-4T preamp system. At your disposal are master volume and tone controls, which allow you to adjust the output level and shape your signal to suit your performing environment. Not only that, but the TP-4T even has a built-in tuner, so no matter where your music takes you, you can tune your strings with ease.
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.
