With Takamine’s signature NEX body style, solid-top construction and deluxe appointments, the GN51 rings with rich, articulate sounds that will inspire your musical creativity.

For players seeking a great-looking guitar that’s easy to play, the GN51 features a solid spruce top and rosewood back and sides. The slim mahogany neck and 12”-radius bound rosewood fingerboard provide great feel and playability, while the split-saddle design of the rosewood bridge provides superior intonation for sweeter-sounding chords and single-note runs.

Other great features include a synthetic bone nut and bridge saddle, rosewood headcap, abalone rosette and mother-of-pearl dot inlays, gold die-cast tuners and a beautiful gloss finish. Available in Natural and Sunburst.

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.
