What's the deal with refurbished?
This instrument is stamped "used" on the back of the headstock and given a new serial number by the manufacturer-authorized refurbisher. Why? It was deemed to have a cosmetic imperfection or to need a repair. Check the description to see exactly why this instrument is considered refurbished. We scrutinize every instrument and pass along all information from the refurbisher so that you know exactly what you are getting. These are like new with little or zero play wear!
Featuring Takamine’s compact but big-sounding NEX body style, solid-top construction, elegant appointments and an upgraded electronics system, the GN71CE is a sleek and stylish acoustic/electric guitar that is all about great looks and premium sound quality. The slim mahogany neck and 12”-radius bound rosewood fingerboard provide great feel and playability, while the onboard Takamine TK-40D preamp system gives you a built-in tuner, three-band EQ and gain controls, mid contour switch, notch filter and EQ bypass switch for the ultimate in versatility and sound quality.
This particular guitar has some finish discoloration on the side of the body at the joint of the neck heel and a couple of tiny scuffs on the rear edge of the headstock tip. We have included close-up photos of both imperfections. Aside from what we have described, this guitar is in mint condition.
How Does It Play?
The NEX body is a super-easy shape and size to play whether standing or sitting. The guitar has an excellent neck and we have given it a full setup. The string action measures a very low 3/32" on the low E string at the 12th fret and 2/32" on the high E, without any buzz!
A new hardshell case can be added to US orders for $95 or to international orders for $115.
