Great sound is in the details

The Takamine GN30-CE acoustic-electric guitar benefits from premium tonewoods and Takamine's painstaking attention to detail. With its high-grade solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, the GN30-CE looks great and is tonally versatile enough to handle whatever playing style your musical mood dictates.

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

The Takamine GN30-CE 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

The GN30-CE 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.

Fantastic Guitar

After replacing the D'Addario strings with Elixer, this guitar sounds wonderful! It's a great bargain. I love the fact there are no bridge pins. This guitar has great action. Will definitely be hanging on to this one for a while!
