Tanglewood TW170-SS Orchestra Sized Acoustic w/ Solid Spruce Top
Availability: In Stock
The TW170-SS is an excellent choice for any guitarist who is looking to add an Orchestra-sized instrument sonic vocabulary. Orchestra sized guitars make great songwriting partners and traveling companions and if you don't have one in your collection, you're missing a unique voice. And just like many far more expensive guitars, it is constructed with a solid AA Sitka Spruce top and mahogany back and sides. The rosewood fretboard is fully bound and adorned with a “Crown” inlay at the 12th fret. Other tasteful appointments include an abalone inlaid headstock, maple bindings, an abalone rosette and a perfectly applied, thin Natural Satin finish. All-in-all, this acoustic guitar makes for a very impressive package, especially considering its price.
The stylishly shaped rosewood bridge holds a fully compensated NuBone saddle. Together with the NuBone nut, and high-ratio machine heads, this guitar's tuning is smooth, sure and precise.
The action on this guitar is appropriately low for fingerstyle playing, and yet this guitar is free of fret buzz, even if you “dig in” and strum aggressively. You could easily spend far more for a guitar that is this well made, looks this expensive, and sounds this good. Life can be full of unpleasant surprises...this won't be one of them!
