    Comments about Takamine GB30CE Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:

    I finally purchased this acoustic bass after wanting an acoustic bass for years. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and tried mine out. I could tell from the weight and the craftsmanship that this was quality construction. I am an experienced player, so I can tell when an instrument feels cheap. Not so at all with this bass. The finish was gorgeous and it sounds wonderful. It also sounds great plugged in. The acoustic sound from this bass is going to inspire some new music for sure. Can't wait to bring it to the next acoustic jam session.

      I use this bass a lot for practicing, nice tone and stays tuned. I am impressed with the on board pre-amp and tuner , find nothing cheap about it. bought it as a restock and looked brand new! Play it unplugged most the time... thumbs up!

          Great looking Bass,with potential to play great,but arrived having a Fret Buzz. Calls to Customer service only offered returning it,whereas I offered the option of taking it to a local shop at Musicians Friends expense. Disappointing,I would rather have kept the Bass.
