The Takamine GF15CE-BSB is an electro-acoustic guitar with an original shape and a rich, warm and very present sound. Vintage sunburst finish.
There are guitars that stand out from the rest and the Takamine GF15CE-BSB catches the eye from the first glance. The FXC body shape is very close to the proportions of a grand concerto, which gives it great resonance, a warm and very pleasant sound, perfect for both rhythm and strumming.
The body, designed with dynamic curves and a cutaway cutaway to access the highest notes, has a top in spruce, and the base and sides are in mahogany. The top's vintage sunburst finish is complemented by the natural wood patterns on the rest of the body.
The neck is also in mahogany and the 21-fret fingerboard is in ovangkol, an African wood similar to rosewood. All materials combine for a high quality visual and sound result. Solidly built, the structural features of the Takamine GF15CE-BSB allow it to sound great as well as being a guitar built to last and play for a long time.
The Takamine GF15CE-BSB's natural sound can be amplified through the brand's TP-4T preamp, with built-in tuner. The TP-4T system has controls for bass, mid, treble, and a gain knob. The 9 volt battery is placed in the pre-amplification module, which makes it practical to use. The amplified sound is faithful to the original acoustic timbre and personality.
The Takamine GF15CE-BSB bridge is a one-piece synthetic bone, and the strings are secured by the traditional pin system. Tuning stability is guaranteed by high quality and durable chrome tuners.
Takamine has been manufacturing guitars since 1951 and since then has been at the forefront of producing musical instruments with innovative features and high quality. It is one of the brands that revolutionized and improved electro-acoustic models, offering an amplified sound very close to the acoustic in instruments with original design. Takamine guitars are played by musicians such as Ry Cooder, Jon Bon Jovi, Bruno Mars, John Scofield and Bruce Springsteen.
For musicians looking for consistent sound and unique style in an instrument built to last, the Takamine GF15CE-BSB is an excellent choice at a very competitive price.
