Spruce Top, Mahogany Back and Sides
To craft the body of the Tanglewood Roadster TWR SF CE Acoustic Guitar , Tanglewood have employed a classic combination of woods, to give a broad range of tones. This combination is comprised of a spruce top and mahogany back and sides.
A long-time favourite of luthiers, spruce offers a large tonal palette, with deep lows, warm mids, and crisp highs. The wood is also known to be strong but also elastic, which allows it to resonate more freely and produce a clear, focussed sound. The mahogany used at the back and sides of the instrument brings warmth to the mid and low ranges, and provides richness to the overall tone.
650mm Scale Length
Although the dimensions of the super folk shape of the Tanglewood Roadster TWR SF CE Acoustic Guitar make it more compact and manageable, it still offers a full 650mm scale length, so you don’t need to worry about altering your playing style when moving between this and other guitars.
The scale length is made up of a mahogany neck, topped by a rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers. This rests between a 43mm ABS nut and an ABS compensated saddle fitted into a rosewood bridge, while at the headstock a set of chrome die-cast machine heads deal with tuning.
