Designed and built under the supervision of Takamine’s head luthiers, G-Series guitars are created to serve all players from the hobbyist to professional. The EG451DLX NEX features a solid spruce top for a balanced tone and extended dynamic range. The back and sides are made from flame maple for enhanced resonance. An ultra deluxe look is created by an intricately inlaid pickguard and fretboard. Gloss Black finish adds to the enduring beauty of the guitar. Stage ready with the TP4T preamp with onboard chromatic tuner.
