Part of Tanglewoods Sundance Historic range, the Tanglewood TW40 O AN E gives you a smaller sized electro-acoustic with a powerful projection rarely heard in a guitar of this size.
A solid spruce top gives the Tanglewood TW40 O AN E great projection when played hard, while remaining bright and clear. The wood only improves at it is played in but provides a well-rounded, meaty tone from the off.
The bright colouring of the spruce top is contrasted beautifully by the darker mahogany back and sides, with an ivory ABS binding unifying the two woods. The mahogany pairs up well with the spruce as it boasts particular emphasis on the bass and treble, whilst adding overtone colouration. The mahogany neck adds its own warm, woody tone to the outfit and is topped by a rosewood fingerboard.
Being a smaller body the orchestra shape of the Tanglewood TW130 ASM CE is both articulate and comfortable to play. Combined with the wider neck, that this shape is known for, you have a guitar that lends itself well to finger-pickers as well as being supremely easy to play.
Although the guitar projects exceptionally well unplugged the Tanglewood TW40 O AN E Electro-Acoustic also features the popular Fishman Sonitone Onboard Preamp System. This preamp brings only the essential controls of volume and tone, but with good reason. The preamp is mounted to the soundhole, with the pickup sitting at the base. This keeps everything compact and discreet, so you can give a venue filling performance without an obtrusive preamp marring the aesthetics of the guitar.

A very nice guitar

A bright toned guitar that is a little lacking in the bass but otherwise full of character and playable. Certainly a leader in its price range and able to match guitars costing much more. I may get myself a Martin 00015 at some point meaning that I would need to trade up to a guitar three times the price for me to consider the improvement being worth the money.
That says a lot for the TW40.
