Description

Here is what Tanglewood say...

'Producing fine handcrafted Spanish style classical guitars is a centuries old luthiers secret and although to some, a guitar is a guitar, those in the know, including our luthiers, will point to significant differences in the disciplines of making nylon strung guitars & steel strung guitars. For that reason we have established a small handcraft workshop where 4 luthiers now only work producing electro classical guitars for us. This small team are well versed in Spanish classical instrument production and take pride in every instrument they produce.

Our intro model will be the TWCE2 Sitka Spruce soundboard instrument. It’s very important for us to capture a striking, authentic Spanish tone, which we will get from the traditional Spruce and Mahogany construction of this model. The cutaway of the instrument lends an air of cool contemporary style and we add the traditional classical values of a 48mm nut width to make things comfortable for the player. We use our 4 band EX4 preamp and digital stage tuner to ensure studio and stage performance readiness and a 19th century southern Spanish rosette pattern to make the cosmetic look just right. Every guitar will feature a handcrafted delicate satin Matt lacquer finish. 

For the TWCE3 we build upon the platform of the TWCE2, using the same contemporary cutaway styling and timbers of Spruce and Mahogany. We maintain the 48mm nut width and the historic 19th century southern Spanish rosette design and add the B-Band M-450T EQ system. Our luthiers have chosen to upgrade the machine heads on TWCE3 models to a superb Antique Gold and Ebony cosmetic, which really makes the headstock stand out, and every guitar will have a full gloss luxury lacquer finish.'
