Tanglewood TWR2-O Roadster series:
We’ve long pioneered the practice of sustainable forestry in the pursuit of our art and for this latest Roadster series we 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.
Our luthiers have to work especially hard in creating their 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. 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 we envisaged on the drawing board, we are sure this also adds to their sweet sounding sonic appeal.
