Beautiful herringbone lines the rosette of this Takamine dreadnought, offered at a great price.
The dreadnought body style of the Takamine G511SS acoustic guitar was created in the 1920's to meet the demand for a louder, more powerful-sounding guitar. It's been one of the most popular and widely recognized acoustic guitar shapes ever since because the dreadnought's broad top and deep body create a large resonant chamber that emphasizes bass response and provides a great deal of volume. This dreadnought features a solid cedar top giving a mellower tone, ideal for intimate settings or mellow classical movements. With a strong fingerstyle tone, cedar offers sustain, clarity, and a tight low end with a strong, woody sound. The solid sapele back and sapele sides add bright snap to the acoustic guitar, without sacrificing the balanced tone overall. While it is a heavier wood, it is also harder and more stable, ensuring that the acoustic guitar is strong in construction.
The rosewood bridge and fingerboard add lasting sustain, the mahogany neck adds a crisp tone, and the chrome tuners keep the Takamine G511SS guitar in precise tune. Dressed in a smooth satin finish, and featuring a luxurious herringbone rosette, this Takamine acoustic guitar sounds great and looks gorgeous, a tribute to craftsmanship that is undeniably Takamine.
