Description

Details

The Tanglewood Crossroads TWCR DE Electro Acoustic Guitar in Whiskey Barrel Burst Satin has the look and vibe of a classic model, and is equipped with modern appointments to ensure consistency throughout the instrument. The unfussy finish belies the remarkable durability of this guitar, and you can rest assured that if you take care of this beauty, it will be with you for many years to come.

Scandinavian-led design

In building the Crossroads' series of models, Tanglewood approached luthier Michael Sanden to design the guitars. Having worked previously on their Master Design series, Tanglewood knew that they could trust Sanden to craft faithful tributes to the legendary instruments that shaped the musical landscape of 1930's America.

Before building even begins, every cut of wood is scrutinised and only selected following a meticulous process of elimination. Each soundboard is reinforced using Sanden's unique bracing pattern, which encourages flexibility for improved resonance and projection. Everything is executed with precision, and no task is too small to ensure the highest quality of product. For the price, the Crossroad series of models offers outstanding value for money.

Dreadnought body shape

The TWCR DE adopts the body shape of one of the most recognisable of all acoustics, the dreadnought. The top is crafted using hand-selected genuine mahogany, which is paired with mahogany back and sides, resulting in a rich timbre that is infused with a warm character. As noted above, Sanden's unique bracing pattern allows the soundboard to resonate freely, whilst preventing unwanted buckling or warping over time.

Neck and fingerboard

Fitted to the body is a solid and durable mahogany neck, which is shaped to a unique profile to facilitate comfort alongside stability. Married to the neck is a hardwood fingerboard, which is home 20-frets that are adorned with dot position inlays. The fingerboard ensures smooth transitions between frets, making it delightfully comfortable to perform on, as well as adding to the stunning overall finish.

Tanglewood electronics

Fitted to the body is the Tanglewood TW-EX4 pickup and preamp system, which enables you to amplify your guitar for performances in any venue size. The system has a 4-band EQ built-in, with slider tone controls for Bass, Mid, Treble, and Presence. As well as this, there is a separate volume control knob for adjusting the output level. For convenience, Tanglewood have even included an onboard digital chromatic tuner, so that no matter where you are, you can tune up with ease. The low-battery indicator keeps you informed as to when a replacement is needed.

Hardware and Finish

The body is home to a hardwood bridge, which matches elegance with stability to ensure a solid anchor point for the strings. Thanks to the superb partnership of hardware and construction across the guitar, intonation and sustain is optimised for peerless performance at this price range. Chrome die-cast tuning machines uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout the most enthusiastic of performances. Another unique touch is the Whiskey Barrel Burst Satin finish, created exclusively for the Crossroads series of models.

Posted on 07/10/2019 by Wanted an acoustic to mess around on and had heard that Tanglewoods were great quality. Even though this is one of the cheaper ones, it sounds wonderful and is so nice to play on. Absolute bargain!
Posted on 02/09/2019 by Brilliant sound, brilliant build, great for my kind of music, for the price it's an absolute steal, you'll regret it if you don't, why pay more.
Posted on 27/03/2019 by an amazing guitar for the price. Can`t fault it in anyway.Tanglewood has certainly come up with a winner
Posted on 27/12/2018 by I've had this guitar for over one year now and it has been a pleasure to play. A great tone and very nice to play
Posted on 24/01/2018 by Just delivered to me, the Crossroads Dreadnaught DE electro acoustic looks amazing straight out of the box. All I could wish for extra would be a protective gig bag, especially if it had a logo on it.... but the guitar is a revelation - just done some song writing this afternoon and used it and the sound was astonishing, the playability way better than anything else in this price range, and it is really well made too. Highly impressed with the instrument.
