This Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides cutaway 3/4 size Taka-mini may be the best excuse ever to own a smaller scale guitar. Tuned standard, alternate or high strung to heaven, the GX11ME-NS is a very unique and versatile instrument all unto itself. The laurel 21 fret fingerboard and friendly 42mm nut width have the feel of an old friend. Take it to the beach. Take it to the studio - and with the TP4T preamp you can take it on stage.
