Great all-around 12-string acoustic sound with the bonus of Takamine TP-4TD Preamp for even better plugged in tone-shaping.

The GD30CE-12 is a stage-worthy acoustic/electric dreadnought 12-string guitar that features solid-top construction, a soft Venetian-style cutaway and a superior-sounding Takamine electronics system. Ready for any performance situation, the GD30CE-12 has a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides that provide you with e a rich, resonant sound.

The slim mahogany neck and 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard provide great feel and playability, while the onboard Takamine TP-4TD preamp system gives you a built-in tuner and 3-band EQ and gain controls for excellent amplified performance and versatility.

The GD30CE-12 also includes a rosewood bridge, synthetic bone nut and split bridge saddle, rosewood headcap, pearloid rosette and dot inlays, chrome die-cast tuners and a beautiful gloss finish. Available in natural.

Comments about Takamine G Series Dreadnought Solid Top Cutaway 12-String Acoustic/Electric Guitar:

First, I don't know why Musicians' Friend doesn't list it as such, but the model number is a Takamine GD30-12.

I pretty much ordered this 12 string blind because the model is so new, there aren't any reviews or You Tube videos to judge it by. I went ahead and ordered it thinking that if I didn't like it, I'd send it back. The only thing I had to do when I got it was adjust the truss rod.

I've been playing this guitar for a month, and the more I play it, the better it sounds. The workmanship is pretty good. I like the vintage amber stained top and the abalone sound hole. The tuning keys do a great job of keeping the guitar in tube, but expect to tune the strings every time you play it. I usually tuned the guitar a full step down to reduce the tension on the neck.

The only thing I not crazy about is the tuner.... frankly I've had better onboard tuners. I haven't tried the other electronics yet.

Even with the mediocre tuner, the guitar sounds great. You'll get your money's worth for sure.
