Takamine GD20CE-NS 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Dreadnought body provides a loud, bold, resonant tone
  • TP4T preamp delivers excellent amplified performance
  • Takamine produces guitars of amazing quality, sound, and playability
Dreadnought body provides a loud, bold, resonant tone

One of the most common styles of acoustic guitars, the dreadnought body is relatively large, resulting in a bold and often loud tone. With square shoulders and a square bottom, dreadnought guitars have enjoyed particular success among folk and bluegrass musicians due to the dreadnought's rich, resonant quality. Pretty much the standard shape for flatpickers, dreadnoughts not only produce exceptional deep tones, they're also known for their articulation and all-around balanced sound.

Takamine's TP4T preamp system provides rich and natural sound

The GD20CE-NS utilizes Takamine's TP4T preamp, giving you rich, clear-sounding amplified output - instantly. A full-featured preamp system, the GD20CE-NS's TP4T electronics provide you with a handy onboard tuner plus an active shelving EQ with bass, middle, and treble sliders. It also sports a low battery indicator, which is actually even more useful than you might think. And since the preamp is switched on by and off by plugging in and unplugging your GD20CE-NS, it's hard to accidentally drain the the 9-volt battery.

Takamine produces guitars of amazing quality, sound, and playability

The Takamine GD20CE-NS acoustic-electric guitar benefits from a half-century of Takamine guitar-crafting knowhow.
