What we say:

Takamine are a very familiar brand to music fans: constantly seen in the overwhelmingly public hands of artists like Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, The Eagles and Garth Brooks. World class professionals choose Takamine, a brand that has grown from a small shop at the foot of Mt Takamine in Japan in 1959 to their status today as one of the world’s biggest acoustic guitar brands.

Gigging players looking for a good value dreadnought with a bit of rock attitude should do very well with the GD30CE in Black! That dark, glossy finish is mean, moody and built for the stage! White multi-ply body binding contrasts with the body and helps to provide context for it on a dark stage. Underneath the black gloss you'll find a solid Spruce top, perfect for such an instrument.

Dreadnought's are the most popular acoustic guitar shape for a reason: they are very satisfying creatures to play, handling percussive strumming and delicate arpeggios & melodies equally well. There is a balance and a strength to this guitar: Spruce gives a nice edge to the naturally boomy dreadnought body. This one also has a Venetian cutaway to facilitate upper fret forays. Again, it's a performer's guitar!

And with that in mind it is important to mention the pickup system. Takamine's TP-4TD marries an undersaddle piezo pickup with a preamp panel located on the upper shoulder of the GD30CE. On this panel you'll be able to adjust volume and gain as well as work with the 3 band EQ and even make use of the on-board tuner!

This Takamine GD30CE supplies you with a fantastic writing, recording and performing companion that looks awesome!


Ready for any performance situation, the GD30CE features a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides that produce 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 with three-band EQ and gain controls for excellent amplified performance and versatility.

Other great features include a pin-less 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 and Black.
