Spruce Top & Mahogany Body
The Tanglewood 12 String Roadster is crafted from a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, delivering bright attack and rich distinct warmth. The spruce top produces a crisp, versatile tone suitable for many styles of playing, and an un-muddied sound which will retain its clarity when you strum hard. Spruce is quite elastic in nature, which resonates well whilst remaining strong, and provides a focused, clear sound of deep lows, warm midi-range, and bright singing highs. The spruce top is balanced out well by its mahogany back and sides as mahogany is denser and produces a richer tone, with emphasised warmth in the mid and low ranges. Mahogany also contains distinct character of a soft warmth, but is well balanced with a bite of its own. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world, because it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant.
Mahogany Neck Topped With Rosewood Fingerboard
The mahogany neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that delivers a warm, bright, and sparkly tone that really shines through when using finger picking techniques. The reason why many guitar necks are made from mahogany is because the wood responds greatly to picking, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. The 12 String Roadster is finished in natural satin to provide a smooth playability and stunning appearance.
Tanglewood's Super Folk Body
The Tanglewood 12 String Roadster features one of Tanglewood's most iconic body shapes, the Super Folk. The super folk cutaway body has become a must have among folk players because it's a bigger version of traditional folk guitars, offering more volume and tone, in a comfortable shape. The cutaway design enables players to reach more challenging chords with ease. The super folk can handle many genres with equal ease, and will cut through a live mix greatly. The Roadster Super Folk is especially perfect for those who specialise in the folk genre.
Tanglewood TEQ-3BT Preamp & Tuner
The 12 String Roadster comes equipped with Tanglewood's own preamp and tuning system, the Tanglewood TEQ-3BT. This sophisticated preamp has an easy-to-read LCD back-lit tuner, and three controllable EQ bands (low, mid, high and volume).
Tanglewood Roadster Styling
The Tanglewood 12 String Roadster is a sleek, classy, curvaceous 12 string electro acoustic. Featuring an abalone inlaid sound-hole with contrasting chrome hardware for a simple, yet sophisticated Tanglewood aesthetic.
