The Tanglewood TW11L-D Black Walnut Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar in Open Pore Natural Satin finish is a fantastic model for players of all skill levels, who want an affordable model without compromising on quality. Tanglewood have established themselves as a manufacturer with a flair for building high quality models at prices that everyone can take advantage of.
The TW11L-D is shaped to the popular dreadnought 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 is noted for producing a rich mid-range warmth with complex undertones. Working with the dreadnought body shape, the guitar is afforded a rich timbre that boasts an incredible energy.
The top is crafted using grade A spruce, a tonewood that luthiers love due to its willingness to resonate freely. The soundboard is reinforced using quartersawn bracing, which prevents unwanted buckling and warping over time, extending the longevity of the TW11L-D. The spruce adds sparkling clarity to the mid-range energy of the black walnut, rounding out the output of the model for a full-bodied sound that is projected gleefully. The result is a wide dynamic range that makes this the ideal guitar for both ensemble players and solo performers alike.
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 large 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-D Black Walnut Dreadnought 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.
