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

The Takamine GF30CE 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 TP-4TD preamp system found in this guitar.

Takamine's TP-4TD preamp system delivers superb sound onstage

The GF30CE sports Takamine's TP-4TD preamp system, giving you rich, clear-sounding amplified output - instantly. A feature of G-Series guitars, the TP-4TD 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 endpin/strap pin jack. Unplugging the cable turns the preamp off. The TP-4TD is powered by a single 9-volt battery.

Sweetwater review

Great guitar for that price range quality construction excellent sound and playability. Sweetwater offers competitive if not the lowest pricing and their service is second to none.

I like it

For the money, it works. Has a good sound, and plays well. I used it on a couple of gigs now, and it worked just fine, not great, but for the money not bad at all.
