The GLN12E strikes a fine balance between power and simplicity with solid tonewood selections and gig-ready electronics. This guitar’s NEX body is easily its defining feature. This original Takamine body slightly reduces the size of a jumbo acoustic — its sound and power rival that of a dreadnought, but with a more balanced overall feel. It’s a great pick for songwriters, solo performers, and players in need of an all-purpose guitar without bulky dreadnought heft. The GLN12E has a gorgeous spruce top paired with back and sides crafted from okoume, a quality affordable hardwood that sonically falls between maple and mahogany. The resulting sound is rustic, rootsy, and full. Playability is easy up and down the neck, thanks to Takamine’s slim profile mahogany neck and the softened feel of a shorter scale (630mm compared to the more common 645mm scale). Musicians looking to gig and record will also be pleased with this guitar’s TP-3G electronics, which provide a classic amplified acoustic sound plus a built-in chromatic tuner and EQ for tweaking tone to taste.
