The Takamine TK-GD51CE Electro Acoustic Guitar delivers some excellent appointments that the professional and the new player will love. Takamine are well known for consistently producing high quality guitars at affordable prices and the TK-GD51CE certainly does not disappoint. Featuring premium grade woods, a powerful preamp system and appointments of beauty, this is a guitar that punches well above its modest price tag.
Full of character
The TK-GD51CE could never be accused of being bland, which is largely thanks to the choice of woods. The dreadnaught shaped, venetian cutaway body is crafted using a solid spruce top that provides the crisp, snappy response and helps to project a clean sound that is backed up with rosewood back and sides to put plenty of meat on the bone. The resulting sound is full-bodied, balanced and incredibly responsive to any playing style.
Equal attention has gone into the creation of the neck which is comprised of mahogany and topped off with a bound rosewood fingerboard. This is a combination you will find on many high-end guitars and rightly so thanks to the smooth and comfortable playing experience that will become evident the moment you start playing the TK-GD51CE.
Gain and sustain
The TK-GD51CE is equipped with Takamine's TP-4TD preamp system, which allows you to plug your guitar into an amp, mixing desk and recording interface. The TP-4TD delivers the timbre of the guitar transparently, so that whether you're playing acoustically or amped up, the same rich tones will sing out. 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.
To complete the sumptuous look of the Takamine TK-GD51CE, you will see gold finish tuners which match the headstock logo, an inlaid abalone rosette and body binding. The end result is a thing of beauty and personality. No matter what your skill level or style, the Takamine TK-GD51CE makes premium guitar available to all.
