The Tanglewood TW11L-000 Black Walnut Folk Acoustic Guitar in Open Pore Natural Satin finish is ideal for players who want an expressive instrument, but don't want a model that is as large as a dreadnought. The scaled-down dimensions make this the perfect guitar for new starters, those who prefer a smaller body shape, and guitarists looking for a model that has a brighter, punchier sound. As with all Tanglewood models, this guitar punches well above its price tag, and offers exceptional value for money.
The TW11L-000 is shaped to the popular Folk body profile, which is favoured by many due to its perfect balance of comfortability and power. The body back and sides are built using black walnut, which works beautifully with the Folk guitar profile to generate a crisp and articulate energy with plenty of mid-range warmth.
The top is crafted using grade A spruce, which is a highly resonant tonewood that projects the tones generated by the body with gusto. Thanks to reinforced quartersawn bracing, the guitar's top remains stable and supported to prevent unwanted buckling or warping over time. The soundboard endows the guitar with an impressive dynamic range, so whether you're performing in an intimate setting or a larger stage, you will be heard loud and clear.
Neck and Fingerboard
Joined to the body is a solid maple neck, which is shaped to a comfortable rounded profile. The neck has also been treated to a satin finish to create a smooth playing feel across its entire length. Married to the neck is a hardwood fingerboard, which is home 20 frets that are decorated with side dot position inlays to guide your way discreetly. Maple fingerboard binding creates seamless transitions between every fret, allowing your fingers to guide along gracefully.
Hardware and Finish
Fitted to the body is a black walnut bridge, which anchors each string securely to provide a flush connection with the body. The result is optimised intonation and sustain to ensure that each string rings out beautifully. At the top of the neck you'll find a petite headstock, which is home to chrome die-cast tuning machines with chrome buttons that uphold tuning integrity through the most enthusiastic of performances.
The Tanglewood TW11L-000 Black Walnut Folk Acoustic Guitar in Open Pore Natural Satin is a superb model that is a steal at this price. Whether you're practising at home, jamming with friends, performing to an adoring crowd, or laying down tracks in the studio, this is the perfect model to get the job done in style.
