The GN20-NS features Takamine's unique NEX body shape - physically compact but sounding as full and well projected as bigger acoustic guitars. The GN20NS delivers the warm and full tones of a solid Cedar top, combined with the balanced response of satin Mahogany back and sides. The result is a rewarding and sweet sound for all playing styles. The 12" radius fingerboard lends itself to effortless and accurate playing for all genres of music.


This is a great looking and sounding guitar well suited to a wide range of styles. With a solid Cedar top combined with Mahogany back and sides you get a warm, detailed sound from the GN20. The slim satin-finish Mahogany neck and 12" Ovangkol fingerboard offer great feel whilst the split-saddle design of the Ovangkol bridge provides superior intonation for sweeter-sounding chords and single-note runs.

Other great features include a synthetic bone nut and bridge saddle, Ovangkol headcap, pearloid dot inlays, chrome die-cast tuners and an elegant Natural Satin finish.
