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

The Takamine G Series GD30CE-12 dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar delivers full, resonant 12-string tone perfect for the stage. With its solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, the GD30CE-12 fills the room with rich acoustic sound. The slim mahogany neck and 12" radius rosewood fingerboard provide smooth playability. Takamine's TP-4TD preamp system gives you a built-in tuner plus three-band EQ and gain controls for dialing in your amplified tone. Chrome die-cast tuners and a synthetic bone nut enhance tuning stability and intonation. The rosewood bridge transfers vibrations efficiently. With its gloss finish, pearloid dot inlays and stylish appointments, the GD30CE-12 looks as good as it sounds.

Project Your Sound With the Takamine TP-4TD Preamp

The onboard Takamine TP-4TD preamp system lets you plug in and amplify your sound with excellent results. It gives you a built-in chromatic tuner for quick tuning on the fly. Three-band EQ with mid-sweep and mid notch filters provide awesome tone shaping ability. You can add gain without distortion for more volume and punch. The result is fantastic amplified tone that accurately captures the GD30CE-12's rich 12-string voice. Whether practicing at home or performing on stage, the Takamine preamp provides the control you need.

Comfortable Feel With Slim Mahogany Neck

The GD30CE-12's slim mahogany neck promotes comfortable, fatigue-free playing. Mahogany is a dense, rigid tonewood that offers stability and sustain. The smooth satin finish lets your fingers glide effortlessly along the neck. A 12" fingerboard radius adds to the comfortable feel. The rosewood fingerboard looks elegant and provides pleasing warmth and resonance. Dot inlays help guide you to the right notes. Overall, the neck design makes playing the GD30CE-12 a pleasure during long practice or gigging sessions.

Built For the Stage With Solid Spruce and Mahogany

With its solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, the GD30CE-12 is built to project on stage. The solid spruce top offers crisp, articulate highs and excellent resonance. Mahogany provides a strong midrange, warm lows and good volume. Together, these tonewoods give your 12-string playing rich, complex sound with excellent presence. The dreadnought body pumps out volume and bass, filling the room with your acoustic tone. Whether you're strumming chords or flatpicking melodies, the GD30CE-12 will make your 12-string playing shine before an audience.

Premium Appointments For Great Looks

With its gloss finish, chrome die-cast tuners and pearloid dot inlays, the GD30CE-12 is one good-looking guitar. The gloss finish highlights the beauty of the solid spruce top. Chrome tuning machines operate smoothly for stable tuning. Pearloid dots adorn the rosewood fingerboard with understated elegance. And the soft Venetian cutaway gives stage-ready style. The GD30CE-12 looks every bit as great as it sounds.
