A Beautiful Koa Performer
Get massive tone and projection from Takamine's GN77KCE acoustic-electric guitar. With its scaled-down jumbo body, you can already expect the GN77KCE guitar to deliver full-bodied lows and plenty of volume. Add to that the mid-focused chime from the laminated koa construction, and you'll fill the air with gorgeous tone. What's more, Takamine outfitted this guitar with their proprietary preamp and pickup system, so you'll get warm, natural sound when you plug in your Takamine GN77KCE.
With its jumbo body style, the Takamine GN77KCE is nothing short of a sound cannon. The guitar's laminated koa back and sides add glittering highs and a pinpointed mid presence to the instrument to keep the larger body from being too boomy. Not to mention, its golden hues and understated figure look absolutely gorgeous. When it comes to getting rich and brilliant looks and tone at a great value, you couldn't ask for any more than this.
Takamine's TP-4TD preamp system delivers fully detailed sound onstage
The GN77KCE sports Takamine's TP-4TD preamp, giving you rich, clear-sounding amplified output — instantly. In addition to a large volume knob, the TP-4TD system on the GN77KCE gives you a tuner and an active shelving EQ with bass, middle, and treble sliders you can use to shape your sound. There's even a low-battery indicator onboard so you know when you need to swap out the 9-volt. Plug in to turn on the preamp; unplug to turn it off.
