The Tanglewood Roadster TWR SFCE 12 String Acoustic Guitar in Natural Satin marries comfortability with a generous dynamic range, whilst boasting a solid build quality at a tantalisingly affordable price. The sweet, fuller sound of a 12-string is the stuff of dreams, and examples can be heard on Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here", The Byrds' "Turn! Turn! Turn!", Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven", and The Eagles' "Hotel California" - which all just go to highlight the versatility of the 12-string. Simply put, what more could you ask for?
Small but loud
The Tanglewood Roadster TWR SFCE 12 String Acoustic Guitar has scaled dimensions when compared to a dreadnought, which makes this an easier proposition for younger players, those with a shorter reach, or even just those who prefer a smaller body. If you're looking for a guitar that travels well, then the TWR SFCE may be right up your street (pun intended).
Compared to the larger dreadnought, this Super Folk design has a more focused mid to upper midrange timbre. The body is crafted using spruce, which is a highly favoured soundboard material as it resonates freely, and projects tones with an enviable energy. The body back and sides establish a warm midrange foundation, whilst guaranteeing a solid and durable feel. The natural satin finish seals the understated aesthetic of this glorious model.
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 standard 650mm, so though the body may be scaled-down, the neck still offers a generous playground to explore without having to adjust your playing style. Paired with the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with white dot position inlays to guide your way. Taking the additional strings into account, Tanglewood has ensured that the fingerboard radius is accommodating, and making the transition from a six string is as seamless as can be.
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.
