  • TW28 CLN

    UK SSP £249.00
    The grass roots of the Evolution IV series, the TW28CLN takes a traditional format and through a little bit of Tanglewood luthier magic creates an all round sound, perfect for starting your Tanglewood journey. Michael Sanden, the Scandinavian guitar guru has designed a guitar that he decided from the outset must be affordable, competent, elegant, and be equipped with a sound that would age and mature over time like a fine oak barrelled single malt. Canadian Red Cedar has been specified for the tops of these instruments, Mahogany timber, in a smooth Natural Satin finish, for the back and sides with North American maple forming a signature binding to all parts of the body neck and headstock giving a pleasing luxury aesthetic to the overall finish. Strumming an open chord reveals a strident confident and precise tone and balance of string response that many professional instruments may lack, largely in part to the uniquely designed bracing pattern that Michael employed for the guitar. The Sanden Tapered Parallel Bracing system is featured on this instrument and is a significant reason behind the "wow factor" a player feels when trying an Evolution IV model.

  • TW28 CSN

    UK SSP £289.00
    A prime instrument from the Evolution IV series, the TW28CSN takes a traditional format and through a little bit of Tanglewood luthier magic creates a fabulous, big robust sound, perfect for the seasoned professional or semi pro player. Michael Sanden, the Scandinavian guitar guru has designed a guitar that he decided from the outset must be affordable, competent, elegant, and be equipped with a sound that would age and mature over time like a fine oak barrelled single malt. Solid Canadian Red Cedar was specially selected for the soundboard top of these instruments, Mahogany timber for the back and sides with North American maple forming a signature binding to all parts of the body neck and headstock giving a pleasing luxury aesthetic to the overall finish. Strumming an open chord reveals a strident confident and precise tone and balance of string response that many professional instruments may lack, largely in part to the uniquely designed bracing pattern that Michael employed for the guitar. The Sanden Tapered Parallel Bracing system is featured on this instrument and is a significant reason behind the "wow factor" a player feels when trying a CSN model. Alun Lower, of Acoustic Guitar magazine gave the TW28CSN a 5 Star "Absolutely Faultless" review, alluding to the fact that unless you were planning on spending more than £500, you should stop searching and buy the Tanglewood (read the whole review here). We couldn't have put it better ourselves!
