Takamine GJ72CE-12
I bought it during a stay in London at Wunjo guitars, or I could try in acoustic and plugged into an amp Fishman, the guitar was perfectly set, I paid 20 € more than net but I preferred to buy in the store or I had tried
again I got a spare set of strings to a strap available as well as no fast freight and qq picks. (Wunjo graciously delivered me home by UPS)
I bought it with a hard case Stagg gca-J (jumbo) (80 €) (because not provided by takamine)

it is a Takamine G Series manufactured in China
G = G series (90 to 20)
J = Jumbo
c = cutaway
e = electro acoustic
The TAKAMINE GN72CE-12NAT is a 12-string guitar Folk shape NEXT (country jumbo) equipped with a solid spruce top, a preamp Takamine TK-40D and mechanical oil bath.

Handle very nice with a low action without buzzing strings, very useful on January 12 strings.
The instrument is bulky and requires a hard case suitable for jumbo boxes.

Preamp Takamine TK-40D. (2 sensors).
The Takamine TK-40 preamp mounted on the G-Series guitars features volume control, and an equalizer for severe, moderate and acute frequencies, an equalizer bypass, a notch filter, a tuner and an enhancer Contour Medium. The preamp is switched on by plugging a standard instrument cable jack 1/4 "mono plug in the instrument, in the center of the strap button on the soundboard of the instrument. Past four characteristics are described more detail below:

Also available, the preamp Takamine TK-40D is a version dual microphone preamp TK-40. This version has two micro elements to collect the sound of each part of the nut into two parts mounted on specific G-Series guitars.

EQ Bypass: This button allows the user to activate or isolate the equalization circuit. When the switch is in the depressed position, the equalizer is activated. Return the switch to the "up" position disables the equalizer circuit and its sliders. The isolation of the EQ circuit is desirable in some studios or public environments where external EQ to the mixer is preferable. The user can also use this switch to quickly check the result of the original non-equalized equalizer settings compared to the sound.

Notch Filter: A Notch filter is a very special kind of EQ which makes a very deep and narrow cut of a band of audio frequency. The TK-40 has a notch "tunable" filter that allows the user to select the specific frequency band to be affected by the filter. With this tunable notch filter the user can "surgically" remove troublesome feedback frequencies that occur due to the natural resonance of the guitar and the interaction with the environment. (Feedback or feedback well-known electro-acoustic instruments which come into resonance at a specific frequency in local amplified)

The potentiometer of this filter allows control of the center frequency of the feedback effect. When the level of onstage or overall sound is too high, and that the musician hears the guitar starting to resonate, it can activate the filter circuit by pressing the "In Out /" button below the button "Notch Filter" and simply tune (tune) the filter (actually changing the center frequency) by slowly rotating the tuning of the filter button until the reaction resonance is eliminated.

Mid Contour: By pressing the Mid Contour button, the user selects a preset EQ that emphasizes the frequencies normally considered "desirable" in an acoustic guitar (400 Hz). When the Mid Contour button is pressed, the cursor using equalizer effectively controls audible tones "nasal" when in the upper position, the average cursor can add punch in upper mids or help "round" attack present in the frequency spectrum. The user should experiment with the Mid Contour button and the cursor equalization "Medium" to determine its sound preference depending on their style of play

Tuner: The tuner TK-40 is fully chromatic and automatic. 9 volt battery fits in the upper preamp under the battery cover. There are polarity marks "+" and "-" at the bottom of the compartment. Press the "Tuner" button to activate the tuner. The note played is indicated by the digital display. The up and down arrows appear, and when both are lit and not flashing, the note is in tune. If the arrow "up" flashes, the string must be set more acute, and if the "down" arrow is flashing the string must be set more serious. Slowing the flashing arrow indicates that the string is close to the displayed note. The tuner does not cut the output of the preamp and the instrument automatically turns off after one minute. It can not be turned off manually.


It's perfect for playing songs like, Easy does it, or Sister moon shine (Supertramp - Roger Hodgson) or the Hotel California intro or a few tubes of America (Horse with no name, Sister gloden Hair).
Therefore suitable for arpeggios or strumming.
Perfectly supports my Shubb capo.


I use it recently and I would change my mind over time.
I tried other models, including the Guild (but much more expensive) and frankly
it sounds great.
I love the sound balance and handy built on a 12-string tuner.
The sound is good acoustic and plugged in my Jam over at SR 150 technology.
I love the finish is amazing for the price.
The value for money is excellent.
