Takamine GN71CE-BSB Acoustic/Electric Guitar, New (SN 1653)
The GN71 guitars are several bumps up the ladder in the Takamine G Series guitars. This is essentially a GN51 guitar with maple binding around the body (front and back), neck, and headstock. The maple binding really sets it apart from the rest of the herd.
Here are the details, as explained on the Takamine website:
Featuring Takamine’s compact but big-sounding NEX body style, solid-top construction, elegant appointments and an upgraded electronics system, the GN71CE is a sleek and stylish acoustic/electric guitar that is all about great looks and premium sound quality.
Delivering everything you need to hit the stage and look good doing it, the GD71CE features a solid spruce top and rosewood back and sides that produce a rich, detailed sound. The slim mahogany neck and 12”-radius bound rosewood fingerboard provide great feel and playability, while the onboard Takamine TK-40D preamp system gives you a built-in tuner, three-band EQ and gain controls, mid contour switch, notch filter and EQ bypass switch for the ultimate in versatility and sound quality.
Other great features include maple body, neck and headstock binding; synthetic bone nut and split bridge saddle; rosewood headcap; abalone rosette; maple dot inlays; gold die-cast tuners with amber buttons; and a beautiful gloss finish.
