    Tanglewood’s Sundance Performance Pro Series is the culmination of decades of guitar building expertise and research. Swedish master luthier Michael Sanden has designed Tanglewood’s new flagship models, boasting all solid wood combinations and sumptuous features on some of the most popular and iconic acoustic body shapes in guitar history. The All Solid Wood Sundance Performance Pro TW70 TE model is a traditional, hourglass figured Orchestra  bodied guitar. The Orchestra’s classic hourglass figure means it sits comfortably on the knee, endearing it to players of folk and other fingerpicking-heavy styles of music. The shape ensures it had the perfect balance between playing and comfort. It features a hand selected premium AAA grade solid Spruce top, coupled with genuine Solid Mahogany back and sides. Hall of Fame luthier Michael Sanden put together a special bracing pattern for the TW70 TE, which features traditional quarter sawn spruce in a tapered style, using a combination of X bracing and fan bracing. This arrangement recovers an outstanding flexibility and tonality from the AAA grade kiln aged solid spruce top, creating a much more stable top than standard bracing. The drawn out harmonic sustain and evenness of tone are testament to Michaels bracing system for sure. Michael Sanden hand selected the solid spruce as it has a tone that makes it a very good ‘all-rounder’. Using a new kiln drying technique called Torrefaction, the TW70 TE has been created with unique sound characteristics that replicate a well loved vintage instrument that has been played in for over 30 years! First, the wood is kiln-dried conventionally to a moisture level of 6 to 10 percent. The wood is then “cooked” in a torrefaction kiln at a high temperature while controlling atmospheric moisture and oxygen levels. After the moisture level is taken to zero percent, the wood is placed in a conditioning chamber where the level of moisture is raised to 3 to 6 percent. The resulting wood boasts greater stability—especially beneficial as it’s exposed to atmospheric moisture during the life of an instrument—due to the closure of the cells when the water and sap is released from the wood. “The wood is heat-treated in an oxygen-free kiln, making it highly resonant and extremely stable, it's as if the wood is pre-aged.” Says Master designer Michael Sanden, “The process  makes the guitar feel like a favourite old model that's been played in daily for the last 20 years… it really does open up the spruce to that degree.” The solid mahogany used for the back and sides is a dark wood with a tight grain. The mahogany’s density can add great projection to the guitar, adding warmth, but with definition. The combination of spruce and mahogany is one of the most popular, because it offers a tone that is very balanced, but versatile, lending itself very well to most musical styles. Besides serving to form the enclosure of the soundbox, the back and sides of the guitar also act as a sympathetic resonator whose oscillations contribute greatly to the harmonic mix. The C-shaped profile Mahogany necks are constructed with a traditional dove tail join and the Mahogany itself provides excellent longitudinal strength. The smooth comfortable oval profile works extremely well for all playing styles. The chrome Grover buttons were chosen as Grover are recognised worldwide as industry leaders for high-quality machine heads. Elixir Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze 12-53 Light E16052 Acoustic Guitar Strings were selected for the Sundance Performance Pro range. Phosphor bronze strings offer the most sensitive, expressive tone that brings out the very best in guitars—virtually taking them to a higher level of play. However, that tone can be short-lived. Elixir Strings has solved this classic conundrum by applying an ultra-thin layer of NANOWEB Coating to protect the string’s windings hence preserving the coveted phosphor bronze tone. Many players prefer the rich, textured tone of phosphor bronze strings. These Elixir Strings capture the sweet spot of that unique phosphor bronze tone and extend it 3-5x longer than conventional strings. The guitar is finished in a high gloss, violin sunburst, polyurethane finish, which gives it a vintage, classic look and feel.

    Tanglewood’s Sundance Performance Pro Series is the culmination of decades of guitar building expertise and research. Swedish master luthier Michael Sanden has designed Tanglewood’s new flagship models, boasting all solid wood combinations and sumptuous features on some of the most popular and iconic acoustic body shapes in guitar history. The Sundance Performance Pro TW47 ASE model is a stunning Super Folk Cutaway Electro with onboard Fishman Electronics for optimum stage performance. This model features a hand selected superior AAA grade solid Mahogany top, matched with genuine all solid Mahogany back and sides. The TW47 ASE is a phenomenal guitar for the professional player and due to its smaller body size is ideal for either male or female players. Scandinavia's most acclaimed luthier, Michael Sanden, has specially designed a combination of X bracing and fan bracing, all using quarter sawn spruce in a tapered style. This arrangement gives a superior flexibility and tonality from the AAA solid Mahogany, creating a more stable top than typical bracing. The uniformity of tone and long sustain are testament to Michaels bracing system. Mahogany was chosen for the soundboard on this model by Michael Sanden as Mahogany-topped guitars exhibit a strong ‘punchy’ tone that is well-suited to country blues playing. The Mahogany gives a warmer sound and the more it is played, the more it develops overtones that contribute to a fuller, richer sound. The mahogany used for the back and sides density can add great projection, adding warmth, but with definition, and a ‘woody’ character. Mahogany traditionally is a solid wood, with a sombre finish, and close grain. The combination of cedar and mahogany is a popular choice as it creates a tone that is very balanced, but versatile, lending itself very well to most musical styles. Besides serving to form the enclosure of the soundbox, the back and sides of the guitar also act as a sympathetic resonator whose oscillations contribute greatly to the harmonic mix. Mahogany is used for the neck in this model as it gives the guitar excellent strength lengthwise. The neck is constructed with a traditional dove tail join. They are C-shaped in a smooth comfortable oval profile that works well for most playing styles. The chrome Grover buttons were chosen as Grover are recognised worldwide as industry leaders for high-quality machine heads. Elixir Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze 12-53 Light E16052 Acoustic Guitar Strings were selected for the Sundance Performance Pro range. Phosphor bronze strings offer the most sensitive, expressive tone that brings out the very best in guitars—virtually taking them to a higher level of play. However, that tone can be short-lived.

These Elixir Strings capture the sweet spot of that unique phosphor bronze tone and extend it 3-5x longer than conventional strings. For the electronics on the Sundance Performance Pro series we selected the Fishman Presys+. The Presys+ onboard preamp system is designed to offer maximum control, performance and quality in a small, unobtrusive format. The compact sophisticated Presys+ system features Volume, Bass, Mid and Treble controls, a Phase switch, and a built-in tuner with LED display. The guitar is finished in a high gloss natural polyurethane finish, which, coupled with the dark all mahogany body gives it an exceptional look and feel.

    The Crossroads series pays homage to the style and sound of classic instruments from 1930’s America. Michael Sanden selected the timbers, making the tops a precise measurement so they flex and respond to the players attack. He then braced the instrument with his own patterns to give each guitar its own personality. He wanted to make a guitar that would have the sound that any musician, professional or amateur could appreciate. To make the guitar look authentic to the 1930’s era, Michael added a dark stain to the timbers that we call Whiskey Barrel to make the Crossroads look historic and simply elegant.
