This TW45W-OP-E 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 TW45W-OP-E is a ”Super-Folk” sized instrument so it is a great choice as your “go to” guitar when you need something with a balanced voice and strong, crisp presence. This guitar responds well to a fingerpicker's lighter touch, but its voice resists becoming compressed when you “dig in”.

Like many expensive alternatives, this guitar is constructed with a solid cedar top. What is unique and visually compelling is the walnut 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.

The electronics are simple, effective and sound quite good. The Fishman Presys system is clean, clear, and quiet. For years, the Fishman Company has been renowned for their innovation, build quality and exceptional sound. The Fishman Presys also features a built-in digital tuner for quick & easy tuning.

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.
