Like its high-end cousin the EF381SC, this impressive black, dreadnought cutaway 12 string G series model delivers a similar look, feel and sound at a budget-friendly price point.

The GD34CE BLK and GD38CE BLK can boast one particular feature certain to make its Pro Series counterpart envious, namely the new TP-3G FET circuit preamp. Inspired by Takamine’s famous 3 slider “Brownie” preamp, the TP-3G is voiced in similar, warm, natural fashion as the original “Brownie” but with an easy to read chromatic tuner, handy notch filter and straightforward EQ controls that practically dial themselves in, all amply powered by a single 9 volt

For extra portability, each GD38CE BLK will come with a new, specially designed GBXW gig-bag.
