Expert Review

Takamine has spent over 50 years perfecting the craft of making instruments. Part of their company ethos is a dedication to quality tonewoods and construction techniques, along with a willingness to experiment and explore new technological territory. With the GB30CE acoustic bass, they’ve done just that, particularly with the proprietary TK-40B preamp system built into the instrument.

This system has it all, a 3-band EQ to let you tweak your sound, gain and mid-shift controls to make adjustments to the signal sent out when you’re plugged in, a bass-boost switch to really turn things up, and an EQ bypass to strip things down to the most basic level. This guitar also includes a tuner, a huge convenience when it comes to making sure your instrument is in the right key.

Outside of the electronics built into this acoustic bass, the instrument itself is crafted to sound amazing from the start. A solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides are responsible for the resonant and rich tone that this instrument is known for. You’ll be able to pull off fast fret maneuvers thanks to the slender mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. Lastly, the Venetian cutaway design ensures that you’ll never feel uncomfortable holding guitar in your lap as you play.Rating: 5/5
