Built for pronounced, dynamic tones
The solid spruce top of the GB72CE projects every note you play with incredible pronunciation, something that is invaluable to bass players. You'll be able to cut through the mix, mesmerise your audience, and deliver a magical performance. Spruce also has the ability to produce supreme dynamics, enhancing your sound and granting you more possibilities. Even when you're not plugged in, you'll still have brilliant volume and a sublime, natural, acoustic tone at your control. And taking your tone to new heights are maple back and sides. This timeless tonewood promises a clear, focused tone with very little feedback. It's enticing. But it can only be truly appreciated when you're wrapped up in its sound. Perform with confidence, slide seamlessly across the rosewood fretboard, and let the spruce and maple body do the rest.
The GB72CE is equipped with Takamine's TK-40B preamp for precise sound sculpting and amplification that stays true to the natural sonic qualities of spruce and mahogany. Afterall, you don’t want to keep them to yourself. Let everyone relish your beautiful bass tone. The preamp features an intuitive tube design and extensive EQ options that allow you to tailor the clarity of your signal immaculately. There's even a notch filter, which is ideal for getting rid of any unwanted feedback; an EQ bypass for a flat signal at live venues; and an integrated tuner for accuracy and quick adjustments.
Elegant, exquisite, and expertly crafted
Sometimes less is more. Understated beauty is shown in all its glory with this Takamine bass. And yet it still has the power to grab you from just a glance. Takamine's meticulous craftsmanship and eye for detail grants you an instrument that is solidly, expertly built and dazzles with looks, sound, and playability. Sublime finishing touches are provided by the pearloid rosette, dot inlays, chrome machineheads, and sleek black binding with white purfling, all of which contribute to an overall gleaming aesthetic.
The GB72CE is a dream to play too. As you waltz across the rosewood fretboard with the maple neck on your palm, you'll have the nipped-in waist of the body providing comfortable playability. What's more, the cutaway allows for easy access to the higher frets, so you can let those top notes ring out beautifully without any muting or buzz.
