The redesigned G Series is now available in various body styles that include traditional and proprietary designs like the NEX and FXC body styles.

Whatever your guitar shape and size preference is, there is a good chance that you'll find what you want among the many choices within the G Series.

You will find various dreadnoughts, concerts, OMs, parlors and many others including their cutaway variants. It probably took them a lot of resources to spread out their production like this, and we are only talking about body shape options.

Aside from body shapes, the G Series guitars come in tonewood combinations that appeal to a wide range of guitarists. Most models come with the conventional solid spruce top, while others will have solid cedar tops for those that prefer warmer tones - solid top guitars feature a quartersawn “X” bracing for improved stability and resonance.

For the back and sides, the guitars feature mahogany, figured maple and rosewood. Some models also have a special three-piece rosewood/quilt maple back.

Other notable exclusive features of the G Series include the pin-less and split-saddle bridges that provide enhanced intonation and convenient string changes. The acoustic-electric models come equipped with Takamine electronics such as the TK-40D and TP4TD preamp systems. They come with built-in electronic tuners and a host of tone-shaping controls.

Dave Gonzales, Takamine Product Manager, had this to say: “Takamine G Series guitars have always represented high quality and exceptional value. And now they’re even better, with great new looks and features at price points that are more accessible than ever before.”

The expected MSRP for the redesigned G Series guitars will go from $259.99 to $859.99. For more information, you can visit Takamine.
