NEX body combines performance and playability

A proprietary body shape developed by Takamine, the GN20-NS's NEX body style is essentially a scaled-down jumbo. Extremely comfortable to play (especially for smaller players) the NEX body style brings a silky balance to a guitar's tone that lends itself especially well to vocal accompaniment. The NEX body style, while small, will still provide you with full-sized sound.

Solid cedar top and mahogany back and sides are a magical tonewood combination

Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the GN20-NS, Takamine chose a solid cedar top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid cedar has an articulate and mellow sound with excellent projection. It's a great balance for the full sound of the mahogany back and sides. And because it's a solid-topped instrument, the tone of your GN20-NS will only get better with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

Takamine produces guitars of amazing quality, sound, and playability

The Takamine GN20-NS acoustic- 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, including Glenn Frey, Bruce Springsteen, Bruno Mars, and Toby Keith. With quality and value as guiding principles, Takamine's instruments employ the finest tonewoods and construction techniques - something you'll discover for yourself as soon as you pick up your GN20-NS for the first time.
