I didn't expect it to sound good plugged in, but it does a good job. You can improve on it if you can get some IR packs. It also has a big nice sound unplugged. Keep your strings fresh, and you'll get the best out of it. My only complaint is that tuners are not the most responsive, but it looks like it can be fixed. Overall, it's a good guitar for the money.

Top guitars!
Nikolay6708, 10.12.2018
Top guitars! For me i have had three of those and so far excellent sound! Years ago switched from Takamine to Taylor but couldn't use to the weak bass, so i sold the more expensive Taylor to go back to Takamine! Like all of the features of the guitar! In build tuner is great to have on the run. Strings are 12 so the sound has power when you stream hard, crystal clear when with new strings especially Elexir. The battery holds a lot if you use Duracell! High of the strings is perfect and no buzzing out of the box. Like also the features with the strings going through the saddle, so it's very convenient to change the strings fast if you need it! I can speak a lot for this guitar but maybe the most liked feature for me is powerful sound and crystal clear. No cons at all, that's my brand guitars! I have jumbo and classical one also!

Eine neue Freundschaft...
Rolf N, 28.04.2019
Ich freue mich, dass ich der Erste - aber hoffentlich nicht der Einzige - bin, der sich für die Westergitarre Takamine GD30 CE entschieden hat und sie bewerten darf. Vorweg: Ich bin kein guter Gitarrist, sondern würde mich eher als fortgeschrittenen Anfänger bezeichnen. Ich habe aber Spaß am Gitarre-Spielen und besitze bereits eine 12-saitige Ibanez Concorde (ca 40 Jahre alt!), die ich mit einem fishman-Tonabnehmer nachgerüstet habe und über meinen kleinen Akustik-Verstärker Harley Benton AC60 Pro spiele.

Unter den acht bis zehn verschiedenen Modellen, die ich bei Thomann in Treppendorf ausprobiert habe, ist mir die Takamine GD 30 CE durch ihren vollen, warmen Klang aufgefallen. Und sie spielt sich dank ihres schlanken Halses wunderbar leicht. Alle Griffe, auch Barré-Akkorde, lassen sich himmlich leicht greifen.  So klingt auch ein h-moll bei mir plötzlich wie ein offener Akkord...naja, ein bisschen üben muss ich schon noch....

Mein Fazit: Die Takamine spielt sich sehr sehr gut und ist auch für den Einsteiger ein feines Instrument. Die Verarbeitung der Gitarre ist hervorragend, der 3-Band-EQ macht einen klasse Job und das eingebaute Stimmgerät ist einfach perfekt!

Bei Thomann hat man eine Mega-Auswahl an Gitarren und man muss sich schon viel Zeit nehmen, wenn man die Richtige finden will. Aber man kann dort in Ruhe alles ausprobieren und findet auch immer einen kompetenten Berater.
Obwohl erst vor drei Wochen gekauft, weiß ich jetzt schon: Meine Takamine und ich, das wird eine lange Freundschaft!

Gute Gitarre zum fairen Preis
DerToni, 16.09.2020
Nach langer Zeit wollte ich mir wieder Mal eine Gitarre zulegen, dieses Mal jedoch eine Westerngitarre. Die Frage nach welcher Marke und nach welchem Model erübrigte sich, als ich diese Gitarre sah und so bestellte ich mir diese.

Pros:
- gut verarbeitet
- angenehm zum "Spielen"
- gute Tonabnehmer
- Stimmgerät inkludiert

Kons:
- der Sound ist zwar nicht schlecht, aber er nicht besonders gut, vorallem für diesen Preis erwartet man sich definitiv mehr

Fazit: für diesen Preis keine schlechte Gitarre
