    A lot of guitars can look very similar from the front. The real test for an instruments cosmetic is when you turn them round and look at the back. Inspired by Italian marquetry techniques, the Java guitars have an Amara Ebony back and sides with a contrasting strip of Spalted Mango timber defining the back of the instrument and making the Java series really stand out from the crowd. Models come in Travel, Orchestra, Parlour, Dreadnought and Super Folk with the Electro models fitted with Fishman Presys EQ systems and Solid Canadian Cedar tops.

    Tanglewood recognise that to introduce people to music an instrument must have a high build quality, good playability, attractive cosmetics and as many features as possible to encourage and reward aspiring musicians. Using this design brief, Tanglewood luthiers created the Discovery Exotic series, a whole range of genuine musical instruments which feature 4 band EQ systems with stage backlighting, delicate 2mm fingerboard dots, black soft touch machine head buttons and understated sound hole rosettes. All these features are aimed at bringing the specification of a much more expensive instrument into the entry level market.

    Producing fine handcrafted Spanish style classical guitars is a centuries old luthiers secret and although to some, a guitar is a guitar, those in the know, including our luthiers, will point to significant differences in the disciplines of making nylon strung guitars & steel strung guitars. For that reason we have established a small handcraft workshop where 4 luthiers now only work producing electro classical guitars for us. This small team are well versed in Spanish classical instrument production and take pride in every instrument they produce. Our intro model will be the TWCE2 Sitka Spruce soundboard instrument. It’s very important for us to capture a striking, authentic Spanish tone, which we will get from the traditional Spruce and Mahogany construction of this model. The cutaway of the instrument lends an air of cool contemporary style and we add the traditional classical values of a 48mm nut width to make things comfortable for the player. We use our 4 band EX4 preamp and digital stage tuner to ensure studio and stage performance readiness and a 19th century southern Spanish rosette pattern to make the cosmetic look just right. Every guitar will feature a handcrafted delicate satin Matt lacquer finish. For the TWCE3 we build upon the platform of the TWCE2, using the same contemporary cutaway styling and timbers of Spruce and Mahogany. We maintain the 48mm nut width and the historic 19th century southern Spanish rosette design and add the B-Band M-450T EQ system. Our luthiers have chosen to upgrade the finish on the TWCE3 to full luxury lacquer gloss.

    The Tanglewood Union series guitars are a range of class leading, quality driven Solid top guitars, created to excite and amaze consumers with outstanding value and ultra competitive pricing. Constructing Union from classic Mahogany tone woods, with premium cosmetic grade Solid African Mahogany tops, each Union model has maple hardwood binding to the body front and headstock, with a maple inlay forming the soundhole rosette. This contrast of rich mahogany and cream maple really makes the guitar stand out visually and we hope will become as iconic for Union and Tanglewood as the Whiskey Barrel finish has been on Crossroads. We’ve chosen a Korean made classic chrome machinehead for precise tuning and a fabulous new rosewood alternative fingerboard material “Eboncore™“. This exciting new material is a contemporary simulated Ebony product which has outstanding cosmetic clarity matched with the robust density of heritage Ebony timber. The Eboncore™ fingerboards will lend ever greater stability to the necks and hold the frets even tighter, giving Union series models class leading intonation and playing actions.

    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 Red Cedar 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 Cedar 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.
