Tanglewood TW15-OP Dreadnought w/ Solid Spruce Top & Super-Thin Open Pore Finish
Availability: In Stock
This TW15-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 TW15-OP is a full sized dreadnought so it excels at flatpicking with a broad voice and strong midrange presence. Fortunately, fingerpickers are welcome to join the party. There are plenty of overtones and crisp high-end sparkle that bring out the nuances of a gentle touch.
Like many classic dreadnoughts, this guitar is constructed with a solid spruce top with mahogany back and sides. 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 on this guitar is quite low, more so than the typical dreadnought, but it is free of any fretting out or buzzing. Prepare to be spoiled.
You Can Add A New Gator Case To Your Order!
You can add a new Gator GWE-Dread 12 hard case to your order for only an additional $89.99, and it would be a very wise decision. This is a well-made, wood arch-top case with a durable Tolex exterior and heavy hardware. The plush-lined interior is densely padded and includes an accessory compartment. Or choose the GW-Dread deluxe case for $99.99, for a more fitted style with a padded handle. I'm sorry, but cases are not available separately.
