The Tanglewood Java TWJDCE Dreadnought Cutaway Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural Gloss, is a fantastic model for players who are looking for a gig-ready model at an affordable price, and don't want to compromise on quality. Tanglewood has a long standing reputation for crafting exquisite instruments, incorporating sublime tonewoods, resilient hardware appointments, and as with this model, versatile electronics.
The Java TWJDCE is shaped to the much loved dreadnought body shape, which is favoured by many guitarists thanks to its generous depth that enables it to generate an enviable energy. The Java series of models benefit from a unique tonewood complement that doesn't just ooze luxurious tones, but looks pretty stunning too. The back comprises amara, which is split with spalt mango to create a striking finish. These tonewoods offer a solid and robust mid-range energy, which works well with the amara sides to guarantee consistency of tone.
Balancing out the tonal offerings of this model is a solid cedar top, which projects with warmth and rich harmonics. As solid cedar has been employed, you can rest assured that the soundboard will only improve with age, and the more it is played, the better it will sound. The natural gloss finish provides protection to the tonewoods, whilst showing off the beautiful natural grain.
Neck and Fingerboard
As with other models in the Java range, the TWJDCE is fitted with a sturdy nato neck, which is shaped to a comfortable profile to accommodate a smooth playing feel. Paired with the neck is a 20-fret sonokeling fingerboard with single position inlay at the 12th fret. Whatever your level of experience, running your fingers along the playing surface is a joy every time, and thanks to the cutaway at the neck, reaching the upper most frets can be done in comfort.
Fishman Sonitone Electronics
The Java TWJDCE is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone EQ system, a combination of an under-saddle pickup that is paired with a soundhole-mounted active preamp - with volume and tone controls. You can shape your high frequency output to suit your playing environment, and can rest assured that the acoustic timbre of your TWJDCE will be translated faithfully.
Hardware and Finish
The body is equipped with a sturdy and resilient sonokeling bridge, which creates a secure connection between the strings and body to optimise intonation and sustain. The tuning machines apply a firm hold to each string, upholding tuning integrity precisely throughout each and every performance.
