Tanglewood TW15-NS Dreadnought Acoustic w/ 100% Solid Tonewoods Throughout
Availability: In Stock
This TW15-NS is a dreadnought guitar built entirely of solid tonewoods. The top is solid spruce, long chosen for its clear and precise voice. The back and sides are both made of solid mahogany. Mahogany provides forceful bass response and strong, cutting mid-range. The sum total of these woods equal a very loud guitar that thanks the player for “digging in” and strumming it with authority. But, owing to its solid spruce top this could be the perfect bluegrass guitar or a solo singer's sole accompanist.
The satin finish mahogany neck is fully bound has a decidedly modern “C” profile that would feel right at home to electric guitarists. The 1-11/16” nut is “just right” and the diamond abalone inlays add more than a little class. Notice that this is a one-piece neck. That's right, there is no cost-cutting “scarf joint” where the neck and headstock meet. This costly use of wood is rarely seen these days, especially at this price. This area also has a traditional diamond volute, adding strength and stability to this important part of every guitar. A thin, Satin Natural finish, triple rosette, and multi-ply bindings complete this guitar's presentation.
The stylishly shaped rosewood bridge is home to a fully compensated bone saddle, so response is powerful and intonation is solid throughout all registers. (That's right...Bone. No plastic for this dread!) The Grover tuners work smoothly, surely and precisely, so you can really “dig in” and pitch will hold true. Because this is a dreadnought guitar, the action is optimized for flatpicking 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-Dread 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.
