The GN93CE G Series NEX-Style Acoustic/Electric Guitar from Takamine is constructed with a solid spruce top, rosewood sides, and a 3-piece back made of rosewood and quilted maple, which is enhanced by a beautiful natural gloss finish. Aside from its refined looks, the NEX body shape delivers a rich and articulate tone with a silky balance that supports vocals beautifully. The slim mahogany neck includes a 21-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with a 12" radius, and a matching rosewood headcap. Additional features include maple binding on the body, neck and headstock, a dark wood rosette and matching body purfling, a synthetic bone nut and split bridge saddle, abalone dot inlays, and gold die-cast tuners with black buttons.
For electronics, the guitar is equipped with a Takamine TK-40D preamp system, which includes a built-in tuner, 3-band EQ and gain control, a mid contour switch, a notch filter, and an EQ bypass switch, giving the player better control of the guitar's tone when used with amplification for live performance.
