Tanglewood TW70-OP Orchestra Guitar w/ Solid Spruce & Thin Open Pore Finish
Availability: In Stock
This TW70-OP has Tanglewood's Open Pore finish that lets the grain be seen and felt, while also allowing the wood to resonate freely. The OP finish is very thin, but not at all patchy and has a great organic quality that feels like a natural extension of the player's hands. There's none of that sticky feeling that you find with glossy finishes. The TW70-OP is an "Orchestra" sized instrument so it is a great choice as your songwriting companion or as a vocalists accompanist. This guitar responds well to a fingerpicker's lighter touch, and is very sensitive to the performer's dynamics.
Like many expensive alternatives, this guitar is constructed with a solid Sitka Spruce top. The spruce is mated with another proven tonewood, African mahogany. The rosewood fretboard is bound with maple and adorned with small dot inlays. Other tasteful appointments include a traditional headstock volute, maple & multi-ply bindings and a rosewood rosette.
The stylishly shaped rosewood bridge is home to a fully compensated saddle. Together with the high-ratio sealed machine heads, this guitar's tuning is smooth, sure and precise. The action is comfortable and free of any fretting out or buzzing.
You Can Add A New Gator Case To Your Order!
You can add a new Gator GW-Classic Deluxe hard case to your order for only an additional $99.99, and it would be a very wise decision. This is a well-made, wood arch-top case with a durable Tolex exterior, padded handle and heavy hardware. The plush-lined interior is densely padded and includes an accessory compartment. I'm sorry, but the case is not available separately.
