The GN20 combines Takamine's compact but big-sounding NEX body style with solid-top construction and tasteful appointments to create a guitar that looks as good as it sounds.

For players looking for a different sound, the GN20 pairs a solid cedar top with mahogany back and sides to produce a warm, detailed tone that works beautifully for a wide range of musical styles. The slim satin-finish mahogany neck and 12"-radius ovangkol fingerboard provide great feel and playability, while the split-saddle design of the pin-less ovangkol bridge provides superior intonation for sweeter-sounding chords and single-note runs.

Other great features include a synthetic bone nut and bridge saddle, ovangkol headcap, pearloid dot inlays, chrome die-cast tuners, and an elegant Natural satin finish.

NEX Body

This original Takamine body is a scaled-down Jumbo at heart. The NEX has a silky balance to the tone that supports vocals beautifully.
