Tanglewood TWBBSFCE Electro Acoustic with Built in Tuner.
Tanglewood TWBBSFCE Electro Acoustic with Built in Tuner. Building on the global success of our Crossroads range of instruments, our design team have created a whole new range of guitars, inspired by the cosmetic of 1940/50’s era US instruments with the class leading constructional signature of Michael Sanden and the Tanglewood artisanal team.
Every Blackbird model is carefully braced to provide a tight bottom end bass note and clear rich high spectrum resonance.
We have bound each model in vintage ivory ABS materials to provide the look of Bakelite from the 40’s, and though this won’t affect the sound, it certainly helps give provenance to the historic look our design team wished to capture, and to our mind, they have done a wonderful job.
We have both traditional acoustic models and stage ready electro acoustic versions available, all featuring the outstanding new Tanglewood Premium Plus Eq system as standard equipment.
The rich smoky charcoal stained finish we have christened “Smokestack Black“ and we hope, amongst the range you will be able to choose your own favourite!

Tanglewood TWCR DCE Electro Acoustic Guitar
Tanglewood TWCR DCE Electro Acoustic Guitar
Tanglewood TWCR DCE Electro Acoustic Guitar. The Crossroads series pays homage to the style and sound of classic instruments from 1930’s America. Michael Sanden selected the timbers, making the tops a precise measurement so they flex and respond to the players attack.
He then braced the instrument with his own patterns to give each guitar its own personality. He wanted to make a guitar that would have the sound that any musician, professional or amateur could appreciate. To make the guitar look authentic to the 1930’s era, Michael added a dark stain to the timbers that we call Whiskey Barrel to make the Crossroads look historic and simply elegant.
Tanglewood TRSF CE AEB Super Folk Acoustic. The Tanglewood TRSF CE AEB is an electroacoustic guitar of the “Super Folk” type, i.e. an instrument with a narrower and shallower body than, for example, the Dreadnought. The body of the guitar is made of laminated ebony. The fine workmanship is accentuated by the double-sided maple body binding, the Herringbone-patterned rosette and top bout, and the ebony veneer on the headstock adorned with the company logo.
Tanglewood DBT PE HR Parlour Acoustic Guitar EQ SPR Hawaiian
Tanglewood DBT PE HR Parlour Acoustic Guitar. Our stunning new Discovery Exotic Parlour is constructed from Hawaiian Rainwood, sustainably grown and imported from the South Pacific to give a wonderful appearance to this true statement piece instrument. To maximise the Parlour instruments we can build, we produce only the back of each model in Rainwood, and construct matching sides from Walnut. Hopefully this exotic complement of timbers will allow us to produce the model for many years to come.
Our hand selected tops are from the mountains of the Himalayas. These hardy spruce timbers are chosen for their exquisite grade patterns and tonal excellence, and we are constantly reminded of the craftsmanship of these fine instruments as soon as we play them. Quarter sawn tapered spruce bracing gives a gravitas and warmth to the construction of each top and lets every instrument sing.
We fit silky smooth Eboncore finger boards for maximum fret efficiency and feel and this particular model has an onboard 4 band EX4 EQ to make it stage or studio compatible. One of the most exotic instruments we have ever produced, the perfect instrument for the player who wants something extra special.
