The Tanglewood TWUD Union Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar in Natural Satin is a fantastic model that delivers a resounding energy. As we've come to expect from the team at Tanglewood, the Union series dreadnought is well-built and punches well above its price tag. Whatever your skill level, you're sure to fall for the charming character of this beauty.
Powerful dreadnought body profile
The TWUD Union is shaped to the dreadnought profile, which is a classic body shape that deftly balances comfortability and power. The back and sides are crafted using mahogany, a tonewood that is favoured by luthiers and guitarists for its lightweight feel and sublime tonal warmth. Paired with the dreadnought body shape, the body generates a stirring output with an enviable energy. The top is also built using mahogany, which offers a warm soundboard that projects midrange tones with less emphasis on upper frequencies, which complements soloists and singer-songwriters.
Thanks to a subtle coating of natural satin, the smooth and tactile feel of the body remains consistent throughout the most enthusiastic of performances. The soundhole is encircled by a maple rosette, whilst ABS black/white binding enhances the visual aesthetic of the guitar.
Robust mahogany neck
Fitted to the body is a sturdy mahogany neck, which is shaped to a rounded profile that provides an ample yet manageable feel in the hand. The 650mm scale offers a generous length for the strings to resonate to produce the utmost articulation. Paired with the neck is an eboncore fingerboard, which is equipped with 20 frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to guide you. The smooth satin finish allows your hand to glide along the neck unimpeded for seamless transitions along its entire length.
The body is home to a black walnut bridge and ABS white saddle, which anchors each string to optimise intonation and sustain, ensuring resonant transference between the strings and body is maximised for a glorious output. The headstock is home to chrome die-cast tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision. Each model is strung with phosphor bronze 12-53-gauge strings so that you're good to go as soon as your Tanglewood TWUD Union Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar arrives.
