Tanglewood TW45RE is an elegant Super Folk Cutaway guitar with onboard high quality LR Baggs electronics for a natural sound on stage and in the studio. It features a hand selected premium AAA grade solid cedar top, paired with genuine solid mahogany back and sides. The TW45RE is flexible enough due to its sizing to be comfortable to both male and female players, an exceptional guitar for the professional player.

Cedar was chosen for the soundboard on this model as it has a much warmer sound, and takes less time to reach its full tonal potential. As a result cedar is a popular choice with finger style players. Cedar-topped guitars are characteristically lush, dark-toned, and bursting with flavour. The mahogany used for the back and sides density can add great ‘punch’ and projection, adding warmth, but with definition, and a ‘woody’ character. Mahogany traditionally is a solid wood, with a sombre finish, and close grain. The combination of cedar and mahogany is a popular choice as it creates a tone that is very balanced, but versatile, lending itself very well to most musical styles. 

Mahogany is used for the neck in this model as it gives the guitar excellent strength lengthwise. The neck is constructed with a traditional dove tail join. It is C-shaped in a smooth comfortable oval profile that works well for most playing styles. The chrome Grover buttons were chosen as Grover are recognised worldwide as industry leaders for high-quality machine heads.

The electronics on the Sundance Performance Pro series are Fishman Presys+. The Presys+ onboard preamp system is designed to offer maximum control, performance and quality in a small, unobtrusive format. The compact sophisticated Presys+ system features Volume, Bass, Mid and Treble controls, a Phase switch, and a built-in tuner with LED display.

The guitar has a gloss lacquer natural finish with maple bindings, tortoise pickguard and chrome hardware.

Includes a free humidifier and hard case!
