Tanglewood Crossroad Series TWCRO Acoustic Guitar, Whiskey Barrel Burst Satin
Tanglewood’s Crossroads series pays homage to the style and sound of classical instruments from 1930’s America when guitars were made straightforward and functional with no added fancy specs. Tanglewood collaborated with the renowned Scandinavian luthier, Michael Sanden, who selected the timbers, making the tops a precise measurement so they flex and respond to the players attack. He then braced the instrument with his own patterns to give each guitar its own personality.
Hand selection of the FSC certified wood has ensured optimum operation of the top, back and sides from a tonal perspective. With a techwood bridge and fingerboard, the guitar plays beautifully to match it’s look.
To make the guitar look authentic to the 1930’s era, Michael added a dark stain to the timbers that Tanglewood call ‘Whiskey Barrel’ to make the Crossroads look historic and simply elegant.
