The Tanglewood Java TWJPE Parlour Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural Gloss, combines the diminutive form of a parlour body shape, with the warm offerings of a solid cedar top to create a balance of charming tones. Not only has that, but the addition of a Fishman Sonitone electronics’ system, offered the chance to take your music to a larger stage. Simply plug in, turn up, and get playing. Whether you're looking for a model to practise with at home, a companion to gig with, a travel buddy for keeping your technique up to scratch wherever you are, or a unique model to record with, the Java TWJPS is a fantastic choice.
The Java Series of models are affordable without compromising on build quality or sacrificing richness of timbre. Only high quality tonewoods have gone into the construction of each guitar. The Java TWJPE is built using a unique tonewood combination for the back, sides and top. Starting with the back, Tanglewood has employed an amara/spalt mango split, a partnership that enables the body to create a solid mid-range energy. The sides are built from amara, again lending itself perfectly to the beautiful finish, whilst allowing the shallow body depth to generate a confident output.
Balancing out the tonal offerings of this model is a solid cedar top, which projects with warmth and rich harmonics. The solid tonewood guarantees that the more this model is played, the more unique the character it will develop over time. The natural gloss finish provides protection to the tonewoods, whilst showing off the beautiful natural grain.
Neck and Fingerboard
Married to the body is nato neck, which is shaped with a C-shaped neck profile. Paired with the neck is an 18-fret sonokeling fingerboard, complete with mahogany binding. The smooth gloss feel of the neck makes it a joy to slide along, whilst the profile makes it comfortable to fret each string.
Fishman Sonitone Electronics
The Java TWJPE 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 TWJPE 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.
