The Tanglewood Java TWJPS Parlour Acoustic Guitar in Natural Gloss, offers a bright and cheerful sounding model with plenty of clout, in a delightfully compact form. 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 benefit from Tanglewood's dedication to their craft, building exceptional instruments at affordable prices. Though the TWJPS may be a parlour model, with a smaller scale body in comparison the Concerts or Dreadnoughts, it is no less powerful and boasts a richly nuanced timbre.
The Java TWJPS is crafted from a unique selection of tonewoods for the back, sides, and top. Starting with the back, Tanglewood has employed an amara/spalt mango split, which doesn't just look pretty stunning, but guarantees that this beauty doesn't miss out on packing a substantial mid-range energy. The sides are built from amara, again creating a rich visual aesthetic as well as a robust mid-range energy.
In order to give this model the projection it deserves, spruce has been tasked with using its inherent resonant qualities to deliver a confident output. Whether you're a fingerstyle player, or perform with a pick, the dynamic range of the TWJPS gives you the freedom to play as delicately or bombastically as you please, all the while producing notes with outstanding clarity.
Neck and Fingerboard
Fitted to the body is a supportive nato neck, with a slender profile that is designed to be accommodating and easy to perform on. Whether you're a seasoned pro, or picking up the guitar for the first time, the slim, wide profile makes it easy to wrap your fingers around to fret each string comfortably. Paired with the neck is a gorgeous sonokeling fingerboard, which carries 18-frets, with a single position inlay at the 12th fret.
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.
