Frequently Asked Questions about Takamine G Series

Question: What is the most popular Takamine G Series guitar?
The most popular Takamine G series guitar tends to go back and forth between the following two: the GD10-NS dreadnought in Natural and the GF15CE in Brown Sunburst. Both offer superb value for money and are solid, reliable instruments that feel and sound good.
Question: I want a good quality yet affordable guitar for playing live acoustic gigs. What can you recommend?
We would perhaps recommend something like the Takamine GF30CE. This utilizes the popular FXC body shape: it's like a grand auditorium but slightly smaller, thus reducing feedback problems. The body also has a Venetian cutaway for easy access to the upper frets. The GF30CE has a solid spruce top which we think increases the quality of the tone significantly. Takamine's TP-4TD preamp and pickup system delivers a clean and amplified sound. This guitar is available in a range of finishes including the lovely Brown Sunburst finish, our particular favourite.
Question: What is the most affordable Takamine acoustic with a solid top?
Currently, the most affordable Takamine G Series guitar with a solid top is the GN20-NS, which has a solid cedar top. This, however, has no pickup. If you need an electro model, we suggest checking out the GX18CE.
Question: What type of pickup systems do Takamine use in their G Series guitars?
Unlike many manufacturers, Takamine design and manufacture their own pickup and preamp systems. Their G Series guitars have different models depending on the guitar but one that we often come across is the TP-4TD unit.
