Tanglewood TW40-P-D All-Mahogany Parlor Guitar w/ 12 Frets To The Body
Availability: In Stock
This TW40-P-D is a Parlor guitar built with the iconic designs of the 1930s firmly in mind. Being a parlor, the TW40-P-D has a very precise voice that responds well to the player's dynamics. But, owing to its solid mahogany top and scalloped X-bracing, this parlor presents authoritative mids that make it a great recording guitar. This guitar is a “12-fret to the body” style. Something wonderful happens when you move the neck/body joint those 2 frets. It necessitates shifting the bridge slightly, right to the top's “sweet spot”. The result is fuller bass, more volume and a broader sound. Sure, it's a parlor guitar, but try it in a “Drop D” tuning and prepare to be pleasantly surprised.
The mahogany neck is a soft “C” profile, and almost melts into your hand, so this guitar allows for long sessions without fatigue. The neck has a satin finish, so it doesn't get sticky and feels smooth as a baby's backside.The rosewood fretboard is deliciously dark and tastefully adorned with small dot inlays. A multi-ply rosette and multi-ply bindings complete this guitar's presentation.
The rosewood bridge is home to a fully compensated saddle Together with the sealed, die-cast tuners, this guitar's tuning is smooth, sure and precise. The action is optimized for fingerpicking and is comfortably low. Parlor guitars are enjoying a tremendous surge in popularity and for good reason. If you've been looking to add one to your collection, but don't have a king's ransom, this would be an excellent choice.
