Tanglewood Blackbird TWBB SDE Electro Acoustic Guitar
The Tanglewood Blackbird TWBB SD E is an exceptional electro-acoustic guitar with rich tones and versatile performance capabilities. Crafted with precision and quality materials, this instrument suits professional musicians and aspiring players.
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!
Comes with a gig bag and a free lesson!
