The Tanglewood Java TWJSFCE Super Folk Cutaway Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural Gloss, is the perfect model for players who want a model that is great for belting out big anthemic songs. The large proportions of this body shape make it great for strummers who want a wide dynamic range to play with, and appreciate being able to project a big sound with ease. If you're seeking a gig-ready model at an affordable price, and don't want to compromise on quality, then the TWJSFCE is the one for you.
Tanglewood craft their instruments with care and attention to ensure that each and every model meets their high standards of quality. Alongside this dedication to the craft, the Java series of models benefit from an enviable combination of exotic tonewoods, resilient hardware, and as with this model, versatile electronics.
The TWJSFCE is shaped to the Super Folk body shape, which features a modestly sized upper bout that is paired with an enlarged lower bout - a combination that serves to create a balanced as well as driven output. The tonewood complement of this body is truly unique, comprising the breath-taking 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.
Smoothing out the tonal offerings of this model is a solid cedar top, which delivers the timbre of this model with warmth and richness across the harmonic range. As the top is made using a solid tonewood, you can rest assured that 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, and allowing them to resonate freely.
Neck and Fingerboard
Fitted to the body is a solid and reliable nato neck, which is shaped to a substantial C-shape profile to offer a reassuringly comfortable 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. The added feature of the deep single cutaway at the neck means that greater access is afforded to the upper frets, giving you the freedom to take full advantage of the entire neck.
Fishman Sonitone Electronics
The Java TWJSFCE 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. The controls are discreetly tucked away so that you are not impeded as you perform. You can shape your high frequency output to suit your playing environment, and can rest assured that the acoustic timbre of your TWJSFCE will be translated with the utmost transparency.
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.
