The Tanglewood Crossroads TWCR DE Electro Acoustic Guitar in Whiskey Barrel Burst Satin has the look and vibe of a classic model, and is equipped with modern appointments to ensure consistency throughout the instrument. The unfussy finish belies the remarkable durability of this guitar, and you can rest assured that if you take care of this beauty, it will be with you for many years to come.
In building the Crossroads’ series of models, Tanglewood approached luthier Michael Sanden to design the guitars. Having worked previously on their Master Design series, Tanglewood knew that they could trust Sanden to craft faithful tributes to the legendary instruments that shaped the musical landscape of 1930’s America.
Before building even begins, every cut of wood is scrutinised and only selected following a meticulous process of elimination. Each soundboard is reinforced using Sanden’s unique bracing pattern, which encourages flexibility for improved resonance and projection. Everything is executed with precision, and no task is too small to ensure the highest quality of product. For the price, the Crossroad series of models offers outstanding value for money.
DREADNOUGHT BODY SHAPE
The TWCR DE adopts the body shape of one of the most recognisable of all acoustics, the dreadnought. The top is crafted using hand-selected genuine mahogany, which is paired with mahogany back and sides, resulting in a rich timbre that is infused with a warm character. As noted above, Sanden’s unique bracing pattern allows the soundboard to resonate freely, whilst preventing unwanted buckling or warping over time.
This beautiful guitar also comes with a premium guitar stand, gig bag, strap and tuner to help you get started!
