Takamine's GLD11E NS is a dreadnought shaped guitar with the benefit of a shorter scale length. This provides a softer, warmer sound due to the lowered tension of the 630mm scale. The okoume top combined with the okoume back and sides create a rustic, rootsy sound that delivers robust fundamental tones. Stage amplification is achieved through Takamine's TP-3G electronics. With its 3 band EQ and chromatic tuner, dialing in the right tone is easy!
