If you are looking for an amazing quality guitar range with a world renowned reputation (that’s also affordable) look no further than Tanglewood Guitars. UK’s biggest selling range has rapidly spread throughout Europe, America and Australia delivering an extensive range bringing music to the ears of millions.
The TW40 O AN E has received rave reviews and it’s easy to see why. Retailing at just $899 in Australian music stores this classic make sits within the Sundance Historic range and was designed using the creative expertise of Michael Sanden, Swedish guitar builder.
The TW40 O AN E has a distinctive natural gloss finish complimented with vintage features. The ‘O’ refers to the orchestra shape while the ‘E’ links to the electro-acoustic model tastefully hidden inside the guitar to maintain the vintage appearance.
Getting down to the specs this model opts for the solid spruce top with laminated mahogany for back and sides. While laminated finishes can result in a frown rest assured it is the soundboard that really matters and they have kept it solid all the way. The neck is also mahogany and to maintain authenticity it’s a handful and great to play. The one-piece design has a reinforced diamond volute at the rear of the headstock. The fingerboard and bridge is rosewood with a bone nut and saddle. Bridge pins are made from ivory ABS and the tortoiseshell pick guard further amplifies the vintage aesthetics.
A quality tone which plays a range of styles from subtle classical to powerful open chords with ease with or without amplification. The Fishman Sonitone pickup and pre-amp are the icing on the cake with the pre-amp housed just within the sound-hole for easy access.
No amount of words on a page can possibly compare to the real deal and hands-on experience, so do yourself a favour and try it out yourself.
