The Tanglewood Java TWJFE Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural Gloss, is an orchestral model that sits just below a dreadnought with regard to size. The narrower waist of this model gives it a more ringing quality, whilst the small upper bout/large lower bout combination creates greater separation between a solid low mid to low end foundation, and a tightly articulate upper frequency response. If you're a fingerstyle player, then you're going to fall in love with this beauty, whilst flat-pickers will adore the exceptional clarity produced by this model.
The Java Series of models are affordable without compromising on build quality or sacrificing richness of timbre. Only high quality tonewoods have gone into the construction of each guitar, with the team at Tanglewood applying their skilled craftsmanship to achieve superb results.
The Java TWJFE is built using a unique tonewood combination 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.
Balancing out the tonal offerings of this model is a solid cedar top, which projects with warmth and rich harmonics. As solid cedar has been employed, you can rest assured that the wood will only improve with age, and the more it is played, the better it will sound. The natural gloss finish provides protection to the tonewoods, whilst showing off the beautiful natural grain in style.
Neck and Fingerboard
Fitted to the body is a strong and supportive nato neck, with a slender profile that is designed to be play fast and free. 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.
Fishman Sonitone Electronics
The Java TWJFE is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone EQ system, which provides an under-saddle pickup and soundhole-mounted active preamp with volume and tone controls. Therefore, when you want to take your music to a larger stage, you can easily connect to an amplifier or P.A. system, safe in the knowledge that the delightful acoustic character of your guitar will be translated transparently.
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.
