Embrace Rich Tone and Unmatched Playability
with the GN20CE from Takamine

Takamine GN20CE - Natural

carefully crafted to inspire your musical creativityIntroducing the ‘GN20CE’ from esteemed Japanese guitar manufacturer Takamine.

Guitarist's more often than not look for two things when buying a new guitar, great aesthetics and great tone. The Takamine GN20CE is a shining example of these two things. The GN20CE boasts beautiful tone, and elegant looks. This is a guitar with a unique sound and one which delivers spectacular performance and playability. Upon picking up the GN20CE for the first time, it’s hard not to be blown away by its rich, detailed palette of sounds.

Dark-toned, whilst still rich in overtones, the GN20CE’s quiet tone makes this a wonderful choice for the player who is more accustomed to fingerstyle playing techniques. Exceptionally comfortable, the GN20CE’s slimline satin-finished neck delivers playability that must be tried first-hand to be believed!

Takamine included their celebrated ‘TP-4TD’ preamp on this range of guitars, this preamp serves to bring the magnificent voice of the GN20CE to acoustic amplifiers and PA systems and imperatively, retains the natural voice of the guitar, whilst also offering a whole avenue of tone-shaping options thanks to the highly-responsive 3-band EQ.

Exemplary Materials make Exemplary Guitars

Takamine GN20CE - Natural

A truly prestigious InstrumentTakamine have long since commanded well-earned respect amongst the guitar community, one reason for this is perhaps due to their long-standing, unwavering commitment to attention to detail and the use of quality tonewoods.

The GN20CE sports a solid cedar top, quartersawn X-bracing and mahogany back and sides. The use of solid cedar means that the GN20CE's voice is a touch darker in tone.

The end result is a guitar that not only looks the part, but crucially, sounds the part too. There can be no argument that the GN20CE is a stunning guitar, the mahogany back and sides really allow the woodgrain to shine through in a beautiful fashion. Furthermore, the satin finish makes for a supremely comfortable playing experience.

Superb 'TP-4TD' Preamp

Takamine GN30CE - Natural

brilliantly responsive 3-BAND EQ The GN20CE boasts Takamine’s own ‘TP-4TD’ preamp, which sits perfectly on the body of the guitar, situated to allow for quick access when you need it, but also situated in a position not to get in the way whilst playing.

The TP-4TD preamp has an incredibly responsive 3-band EQ – each of which are adjusted by smooth sliders, a volume knob, an on-board tuner, all on one simple and intuitive control panel which encourages the player to plug in and make this guitar soar.

A handy ‘Low Battery’ LED has been added too, a small but invaluable commodity when performing live.

Adorned in Elegant Hardware

Takamine GN30CE - Natural

featuring takamine's 2 piece saddle technologyTakamine’s attention to detail is just one factor which has earned their lofty status amidst guitarists the world over. The GN20CE is a prime example of this, from top to bottom, the hardware to be found here is nothing short of impeccable. The machineheads are diecast and sport a chrome finish, and offer flawless tuning stability and react to even the smallest of tuning adjustments.

The saddle showcases Takemine’s 2-piece saddle design. A unique feature to Takamine guitars, the reasoning behind the 2-piece design is to solve any intonation issues. Strings 3-6 share one saddle, and the remaining 2 have their own. These are set at unique angles to offer unparalleled intonation. A fine touch indeed.

The fingerboard is made of Ovangkol a great sounding wood with a full midrange, which allows for smooth, fluid playing up and down the neck. The neck is finished off with Pearloid dot inlays for that extra touch of class. The GN20CE is truly a sight to behold.

The Result of Over 50 Years of Expertise and Knowledge

Takamine GN30CE - Natural

delicately crafted with passion and flair The Takemine GN20CE is the result of over 50 years of resolute expertise from a manufacturer at the top of their game.
