The Tanglewood Roadster TWR AB Electro Acoustic Bass Guitar in Natural Satin may have an understated finish, but it is by no means a slouch when it comes to craftsmanship, playability, and heavenly tones. Adhering to Tanglewood's ambition to create instruments of exceptional value, the Roadster electro acoustic bass fits the spec perfectly. Whether you're looking for a model to practise, perform, or record with, this bass is as versatile as it is beautiful.
Small but loud
The Tanglewood Roadster TWR AB Electro Acoustic Bass Guitar is shaped to a comfortable single-cutaway body profile, which makes the upper frets easily accessible. With curves in all the right places, you will find this beauty as easy to play whether seated or standing. The back and sides are built using mahogany, which establishes a warm midrange tonal foundation with plenty of bottom-end energy - perfect for full-sounding, driving basslines. The top is made using spruce, which acts as a highly resonant soundboard that projects tones with power.
Solid neck and fingerboard partnership
Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is shaped to a comfortable rounded profile. The scale length is set to a generous 864mm, giving your fretting hand plenty of room to roam. Paired with the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with white dot position inlays to guide your way. Whether you're a first-time player or a seasoned pro, the Roadster electro acoustic bass is designed to put everyone at ease from the off, then this neck and fingerboard combo is a dream for honing your skills on.
The headstock is home to chrome die-cast machine heads that uphold tuning integrity with precision. The ABS nut works dutifully between the tuning machines and rosewood bridge with ABS compensated saddle, all coming together to optimise intonation and sustain. You can rest assured that each string is anchored securely, so no matter how enthusiastically you play, everything will remain steadfast.
