A Parlor-sized Acoustic
The Takamine GY18CE acoustic guitar may be small, but it rewards you with its great sound, understated good looks, and smooth playability. Whether you're a folk strummer, fingerstylist, or live performance rocker, you'll love the warm sound of the guitar's mahogany top, back, and sides. Grab the fast mahogany neck, strum a few chords, and revel in the clear, full-bodied richness resonating from the diminutive parlor-style body and scalloped X-bracing. The Takamine GY11ME New Yorker is a compact guitar with a big attitude.
Takamine's TP-4T preamp system delivers fully detailed sound onstage
The GY18CE sports Takamine's TP-4T preamp, instantly giving you rich, clear-sounding amplified output. In addition to a large volume knob, the TP-4T system on the GY18CE 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.
Takamine: a legacy of amazing quality, sound, and playability
The Takamine GY18CE acoustic guitar benefits from a half-century of Takamine guitar-crafting know-how. Launched in 1962 at the foot of Japan's Takamine mountains, Takamine has been designing and building acoustic guitars that are seen in the hands of some of music's biggest stars. With quality and value as guiding principles, Takamine's instruments employ the finest tonewoods and construction techniques, something you'll discover for yourself as soon as you pick up your GY11ME New Yorker for the first time.
