The Takamine GF15CE-NAT Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural is a fantastic model that is ready to take to the studio or hit the stage with. Takamine has over 50 years' experience in crafting their immaculate guitars, and the compact FXC body shape makes this the perfect model for fingerstyle players and those who prefer guitar with diminutive dimensions.
Compact FXC Body
Takamine's FXC body is smaller in proportion when compared to a dreadnought, with a smaller upper bout combined with a larger lower bout. The shape of the FXC gives it a generous midrange energy that is tempered by a sharp articulation across every note. The GF15CE-NAT is shaped with a deep single-cutaway to guarantee easier upper fret access. Whether you're performing in a seated or standing position, you will fall in love with how easy it is to play this beautiful model.
To ensure this compact model achieves rich and diverse timbre, Takamine has used mahogany for the back and sides, which is paired with a spruce top. The mahogany provides a warm and energetic foundation, whilst the spruce top complements this by ensuring clarity throughout the frequency range. Thanks to the dense character of the mahogany, the timbre produced drives forward with a substantial energy, whilst the spruce resonates efficiently to project the tones generated within with effortless grace.
Neck and Fingerboard
Fitted to the body is a slender and strong mahogany neck. The neck profile is shaped to be as slim and accommodating as possible, welcoming all players with a delightfully comfortable playing feel. Paired with the neck is a gorgeous rosewood fingerboard, which carries 20-frets that are adorned with white dot position inlays.
Takamine TP-4T Preamp
In order to best represent the acoustic timbre of the guitar when played through an amp, Takamine has equipped the GF15CE-NAT 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.
