The Tanglewood Premier TW145SSCE Electric Acoustic Guitar in Natural Satin, is an exceptional model that is built lovingly by a manufacturer with over 20 years of producing exceptional instruments. Thanks to Tanglewood's unfailing dedication to their craft, you are guaranteed a superb guitar that will become a part of your arsenal for many years to come.
The body is shaped to the Super Folk profile, giving it a narrow waist that is paired with a large lower bout. The effect this has on the tone is that it guarantees a balanced output, with a driving energy. The body is built using mahogany for the back and sides, a widely favoured tonewood that is revered for its warm character. Paired with the sides is a solid AA Sitka spruce top, a premium tonewood that will grow in character the more it is played over time. The crisp highs produced by the spruce guarantees articulation across each and every note, working harmoniously with the mahogany.
Neck and Fingerboard
Connected to the body is a robust and firm mahogany neck, which is shaped to a substantial slender profile to facilitate comfort alongside stability. Paired with the neck is a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard, which is home to discretely designed dot position inlays. The fingerboard provides a luxurious playing feel as you navigate your way along in style.
Fishman Presys Electronics
The TW145SSCE is equipped with Fishman's Presys electronics system, which marries together a pre-wired Fishman Sonicore pickup with a highly versatile 3-band EQ - with integrated tuner and phase switch.
The beauty of the Presys system is that is works dutifully to translate the rich acoustic timbre of the TW145SSCE transparently when played through an amplifier or P.A. system. The built-in 3-band EQ controls allow you to shape your output to suit your environment, or for stylistic purposes. The tuner means that you need never have to worry about forgetting your tuner again. The phase switch allows you to improve the bass response at low volume, and suppress feedback at high volume, again to meet the acoustic requirements of your performance environment.
Hardware and Finish
Fitted to the body is a rosewood bridge, which creates a seamless connection between the strings and body, optimising intonation and sustain. In position on the bridge is a compensated NuBone saddle, creating a snug base for each string to rest on to provide unwanted movement - as well as lending itself to the superb intonation and sustain.
Fitted to the headstock are chrome Kluson-style tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision, whilst allowing you to make adjustments with the greatest of precision.
The Tanglewood Premier TW145SSCE Electric Acoustic Guitar in Natural Satin has it all: gorgeous looks, sublime tones, a heavenly playing feel, and is built to take all that can be thrown its way. If you're looking for your new best friend, then look no further than this perfectly formed little beauty.
