The TW145-SS-CE is a “Super Folk” sized guitar and features a AA solid spruce top with mahogany back and sides. It also sports a cutaway for easy access to the highest frets. The rosewood fretboard is fully bound and adorned with a crown inlay at the 12th fret. Other tasteful appointments include an abalone inlaid headstock, maple & rosewood bindings, an abalone rosette and a thinly applied Natural Satin finish. All-in-all, this guitar makes for a very impressive package, especially considering its price.
Gigging guitarists will like the B-BAND Crescent electronics. The Crescent preamp fits into the shape of the instruments round soundhole where they are easily accessed by fingertips. The Crescent includes volume, bass and treble controls, feedback-killing phase button and low battery LED that also acts as a "flash" ON indicator. Power is supplied by a 9-volt battery. This system, like all B-BAND products, is clean, clear, quiet and very dependable.
The stylishly shaped rosewood bridge holds a fully compensated NuBone saddle. Together with the NuBone nut, and high-ratio machine heads, this guitar's tuning is smooth, sure and precise. For many of us, this size guitar is the one "does it all" instrument. It is very articulate and responsive to the player's touch making it an excellent accompanist and finger picker's choice. But this guitar also likes it when you "dig in" and play aggressively. The action is low and free of all fret buzz.
