Tanglewood’s classic and unique shape, the Super Folk cutaway is represented perfectly in this model. From the warm Spruce top, imported from Canada to the elegantly detailed hand inlaid wood rosette, this instrument oozes understated quality. The Spruce top gives the guitar an immediate, well voiced, bass rich sound right out of the box.
The Tanglewood TW-EX4 pickup and preamp system features a 4-band EQ which includes slider tone controls for bass, mid, treble and presence, along with a seperate volume control knob and the convenience of an onboard digital chromatic tuner.
The stripped down, natural look of this guitar, offers value for money. It’s outstanding and if you are looking for a stunning contemporary guitar that is all about the sound, you’ve found it here.
Roadster II – The Concept
Inspired by nature and the raw beauty of classic timber, Roadster II instruments make a truly organic and understated natural statement. We’ve long pioneered the practise of sustainable forestry in the pursuit of our art and for this latest Roadster series we match finely graded Canadian Spruce tops with traditional Indonesian mahogany back and sides to produce tonally rich instruments that sound instantly wonderful tuned up right out of the box.
We call them Roadster because to us, their cosmetic appeal evokes a sense of being close to nature… just as driving a classic open top car with the wind in your hair!
Our luthiers have to work especially hard in creating this look, finishing the smooth edging joins of the body very carefully because there is no binding added to the body of these models, therefore no margin for error. Roadster II Spruce tops are finished and sealed in high grade, low density satin lacquer and as well as capturing the stripped down raw timber cosmetic effect we envisaged on the drawing board, we are sure this also adds to their sweet sounding sonic appeal.
