The price may be modest, but the Takamine GS430S NEX Acoustic Guitar gives you genuine Takamine tone. There's no imitating the silky-sweet sound of a genuine solid cedar top, so Takamine has built a beautiful instrument around this one with mahogany back and sides and a light satin finish. A solid top made of select Cedar gives the GS430S a smooth attack and a dark tone that will keep getting better with age! The result is an incredibly affordable guitar with truly high-end tone.
The NEX body is a signature Takamine design that has the depth of a dreadnought to ensure a great level of volume, yet has the feel of a small-bodied guitar. It offers a balanced tonal response with deep bass, clear treble, and a sweet, round midrange that projects well. Other features include a bound neck and body, concentric ring rosette, sealed die-cast tuners, a Rosewood bridge and a rosewood fretboard. With its impressive style and performance, the GS430S guitar is an excellent accompaniment to the singer-songwriter, or the finger-style player.
Play a G Series guitar and you're apt to think it's one of the finest acoustic electrics made. That's because it is. Actually, each one is made under the commanding rule of the luthiers who hand craft the guitars of the pros. Which is precisely why the G Series feel so good, and sound so good. The GS430S represents great Takamine quality and value in an acoustic-electric guitar.
