The Tanglewood Roadster-II TWRO-II Acoustic Guitar in Natural Satin is a delightfully understated model that plays beautifully and doesn't cost the earth. Tanglewood have fast developed a reputation for producing high quality instruments that are delivered at affordable prices, and the second-generation Roadster-II is no exception.
Delicately balanced Orchestra body
The diminutively-sized Orchestra body shape makes this an excellent choice for those who want a guitar that is easy to travel with. The body is crafted using mahogany for the back and sides, a tonewood that is highly prized due to its impressive tonal warmth and lightweight feel. The curvy shape is met by a shallow body depth to establish a feeling of comfort whether seated or standing. The top is built using cedar, which presents a warmer output as a soundboard than spruce, making it ideal for those who want an acoustic that projects with a graceful warmth. The slender natural satin finish allows the woods to resonate unimpeded to produce a sophisticated timbre that is brimming with character.
Paired with the body is a sturdy mahogany neck, which offers a solid playing support for your fretting hand to navigate. The rounded profile creates a reassuringly substantial feel in the hand, whilst remaining manageable and a joy to navigate. Married to the neck is an eboncore fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with dot position inlays to guide your way discreetly.
The body is home to a black walnut bridge and ABS white saddle, which anchors each string to optimise intonation and sustain, ensuring resonant transference between the strings and body is maximised for a glorious output. The headstock is home to chrome die cast tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision. Each model is strung with phosphor bronze 12-53 gauge strings so that you're good to go as soon as your Tanglewood Roadster-II TWRO-II Acoustic Guitar arrives.
