Solid Spruce Top Delivers Powerful, Articulate Sound

Slim Neck and Cutaway Provide Superior Playability

Onboard Electronics Deliver Versatile Amplified Tone

Takamine's TP-4T preamp system gives musicians control over their amplified sound with bass, middle, and treble EQ adjustments as well as a built-in chromatic tuner. The preamp provides a classic acoustic-electric tone suitable for live gigs, recording, or jam sessions.

Premium Appointments and Glossy Finish

The GN51CE features premium appointments like a synthetic bone nut and saddle, rosewood headcap, ivoroid binding, abalone rosette, and gloss sunburst finish. These upscale components enhance the guitar's appearance and tone, highlighting its status as a professional-grade instrument at an affordable price.
