You've been wanting an acoustic-electric bass, haven't you? You're in luck, 'cause GearNuts has your axe: the Takamine GB72CE. When you hit the stage with the GB72CE, you'll own your audience. That's because this thing looks and sounds amazing! This jumbo's got a solid spruce top, flame maple back and sides, and quartersawn-X bracing, for gargantuan tone. And the TK-40B preamp amplifies that tone perfectly, and lets you tweak it with 3-band EQ, gain and mid-shift controls, and a bass-boost switch. With its fast neck and sexy Venetian cutaway, the Takamine GB72CE delivers over-the-top playability.
