A special combination of tonewoods that offers a new take on this classic body style.
The GD20 is a beautiful dreadnought-style acoustic guitar with a special combination of tonewoods that offers a new take on this classic body style.
For players looking for a different sound, the GD20 combines a solid cedar top with mahogany back and sides to produce a warm, detailed tone that works beautifully for a wide range of musical styles. The slim satin-finish mahogany neck and 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard provide great feel and playability, while the split-saddle design of the pin-less rosewood bridge provides superior intonation for sweeter-sounding chords and single-note runs.
Other great features include a synthetic bone nut and bridge saddle, rosewood headcap, pearloid dot inlays, chrome die-cast tuners and an elegant natural satin finish. Case sold separately.

Comments about Takamine G Series GD20 Dreadnought Solid Top Acoustic Guitar:
Takamine GD20 is one awesome guitar. The solid Cedar top generates a very pretty tone regardless if finger picking, strumming, or playing lead. As a finger picker I love this guitar. It has a plain Jane look to it, but, its simple look is what I find so appealing. It does not even have a gloss finish on the body. The entire guitar has a satin finish which I absolutely love. Gloss finish shows finger prints and prevents the wood from vibrating freely, therefore, not as nice as a tone. The neck has a slim profile which again I love and the tuning keys are smooth and keep the strings in tune for a long time. What I love the most about this guitar is its ability to produce strong and well-defined bass notes. That to itself is a sign of a great guitar craftsmanship. Another thing I like is the fact that strings are run through the back of the bridge like an electric guitar and there is no need for bridge pins, therefore, no worries about damaging the bridge plate when pulling on the new string to secure it under the pin and that means eliminating the future need for repair work and besides it makes installing new strings easier.
When I walked into the music store about a month ago I wanted to check out all the acoustic guitars on the wall that had a price tag of 500dlrs or less. This was the fourth guitar that I brought down and right away I fell in love with its sound. From then on every guitar I brought down I compared its sound side by side against this Takamine GD20. For me it was a no brainer. There were prettier guitars, but, an instrument should be all about the sound and this guitar had the best sound. At that time I was just window shopping but three weeks later I ordered it on line. It arrived couple of days ago and I absolutely love it, no imperfections anywhere. This guitar is worth a lot more than 250dlrs. I've purchased over 60 guitars during the last 40 years and I've played hundreds of others in music stores; you can trust my words. Better yet, check it out for yourself before ordering and I bet you'll agree with my opinion of this guitar.
