The Tanglewood Premier Historic TW130SM Acoustic Guitar in Natural Satin, offers a model that is a joy to perform with, and is perfect for fingerstyle players. If you're looking for an affordable model, but don't wish to sacrifice on quality, then this is the model for you.
Tanglewood have a meticulous approach when it comes to designing and building their guitars, with a fastidious testing process following each build to ensure every single model meets their demanding standards.
The body is shaped to the Orchestra body profile, giving it diminutive proportions when compared to a dreadnought. The effect this has on the tone is that it guarantees a balanced output, yielding softened tones with a subtly nuanced response. The body top and back are built using solid mahogany, a tonewood that is widely favoured for its warm character. Paired with the top and back are mahogany sides, which reinforces the warm, driving character to guarantee an impressive dynamic range.
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.
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 open geared chrome tuning machines, which allow you to smoothly adjust the strings, whilst upholding tuning integrity with absolute precision during performances.
The Tanglewood Premier Historic TW130SM 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.
