Small NEX Body, Big Tone, Beautiful Tonewoods!

The Takamine GN93CE NEX acoustic-electric is a small-bodied acoustic electric guitar that will provide you with full-sized sound onstage and unplugged. Grab the fast and comfortable mahogany neck, strum a few chords, and revel in the clear, full-bodied richness resonating from the extremely comfortable cutaway NEX-style body and scalloped X-braced solid spruce top. Plug this the GN93CE in, and its TK-40D preamp provides you with full and clear tone that you can shape with the built-in 3-band EQ. What's more, there's even a tuner onboard the Takamine GN93CE.

Takamine GN93CE NEX Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Great sound is in the details
  • Takamine's TK-40D preamp system
  • Takamine: a legacy of amazing quality, sound, and playability
Great sound is in the details

The Takamine GN93CE acoustic-electric guitar benefits from quality tonewoods and Takamine's painstaking attention to detail. With its scalloped X-braced solid spruce top, rosewood sides, and 3-piece rosewood/maple back, the GN93CE looks great and is tonally versatile enough to handle whatever playing style your musical mood dictates. And if you're playing out, the Takamine GN93CE's stage-friendly gloss finish will certainly command your audience's attention.

Takamine's TK-40D preamp system

The GN93CE sports Takamine's TK-40D preamp, giving you rich, clear-sounding amplified output - instantly. The TK-40D 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 TK-40D is powered by a single 9-volt battery.

Takamine: a legacy of amazing quality, sound, and playability

The Takamine GN93CE 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 and construction techniques - something you'll discover for yourself as soon as you pick up your GN93CE for the first time.

Takamine GN93CE NEX Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Acoustic-electric guitar with a distinctive voice and a super-comfortable NEX-style small jumbo body
  • Highly resonant solid spruce top with scalloped X-bracing provides incredible volume and projection
  • 3-piece rosewood back with maple center produces a rich and balanced sound with great definition
  • Mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, 20 nickel-silver frets, dot inlays
  • Under-saddle pickup and TK-40D preamp system with 3-band EQ and built-in tuner provide excellent sound plugged in
Takamine's GN93CE delivers amazing performance in a compact package!

Love my Takamine!

I absolutely love my new Takamine! The finish is absolutely gorgeous and I love the overall shape of the guitar body! The action is also a big improvement compared to my previous guitar. I haven't plugged my guitar in much yet, but I really love the acoustic sound. I would rate the Sweetwater service at 5 stars! The staff is amazing, and our sales associate worked with us on price on everything!

A Guitar way above its price class

I was looking to get the next level Taylor as I needed the cutaway for the Gypsy Jazz music I've been learning but found the cost too prohibitive. I found this guitar on the Sweetwater site and bought it without ever trying it. I've never had a Takamine before so I was a little nervous but for the price I thought why not try it out. I was presently surprised as this is a really fun geat sounding guitar. I am finding that the electronics are stupendous and require no extra EQ as I run this flat and it sounds great. The neck is very comfortable and easy to play on. The frets are smooth and gresat action. The craftsmanship is top notch. The backside woodwork is beautiful. This guitar is easily in the $1200 class for less than $600. I am looking forward to recording with this guitar and I suspect that I shall not be disappointed. I would like to thank my guitar tech at Sweetwater who set this up that they did an excellent job.

My Go-TO

This is my go-to performance guitar, and it has never let me down. Frets are great, sweetwater action is stellar, and the looks are amazing. The stripe on the back is just beautiful. For a chinese made guitar, it is amazing. It sounds great as is, but when you plug it in, the TK-40D shines. I love it.
