Tanglewood TWR2-O is a Roadster Series model inspired by nature and the raw beauty of classic timber. These models make a truly organic and understated natural statement.
Tanglewood has long pioneered the practice of sustainable forestry in the pursuit of their art and for this latest Roadster series they match finely graded Canadian Red Cedar tops with traditional Indonesian mahogany back and sides to produce tonally rich instruments that sound instantly wonderful tuned up right out of the box.
These guitars all called Roadster because their cosmetic appeal evokes a sense of being close to nature… just as driving a classic open top car with the wind in your hair!
Tanglewood luthiers have to work especially hard in creating this look, finishing the smooth edging joins of the body very carefully because there is no binding added to the body of these models, therefore no margin for error. Roadster II Cedar tops are finished and sealed in high grade, low density satin lacquer and as well as capturing the stripped down raw timber cosmetic effect.
The mahogany neck assists with sustain and resonance while the satin finish is light enough to let the woods 'breathe' and resonate more fully. This model has an eboncore fingerboard; a composite material with a balanced response across its whole length. Eboncore (and other similar materials) are increasingly being used, representing the fact that many different brands are now looking towards more environmentally-responsible materials for guitar production. The eboncore has the look and feel of wood - close your eyes and you'd never know.
