Takamine - 50 years of quality, great sound, and playability

The Takamine GD30-CE dreadnought cutaway acoustic-electric guitar benefits from a half-century of Takamine guitar-crafting knowhow. Launched in 1962 at the foot of Japan's Takamine mountains, Takamine has been designing and building acoustic guitars that are seen in the hands of some of music's biggest stars. With quality and value as guiding principles, Takamine's instruments employ the finest tonewoods, construction techniques, and technical innovations, such as the proprietary TP4T preamp system found in this guitar.

Takamine's TP4T preamp system

The GD30-CE sports Takamine's TP4T preamp, giving you rich, clear-sounding amplified output, instantly. A feature of G-Series guitars, the TP4T features a gain knob; a tuner; an active shelving EQ with bass, middle, and treble sliders; and a low battery indicator. The preamp is switched on by plugging a standard instrument cable into the end pin/strap pin jack. Unplugging the cable turns the preamp off. The TP4T is powered by a single 9-volt battery.
