Tanglewood Crossroads TWCRO Acoustic Guitar
The Crossroads series pays homage to the style and sound of classic instruments from 1930’s America.
The 30’s were a time of hardship all across the USA with the Great Depression bringing communities to their knees and the strife and pain of poverty and famine recorded in journals and diaries and of course in song, all across the country. Some of what are now regarded as the finest and most influential musicians in the world created a rhythmic sound during those years and sang of their troubles, a sound we now think of as the blues.
The guitars used to play this music weren’t fancy, or ornately decorated or adorned with expensive lacquers, they were straightforward and functional, but in a lot of cases these instruments were still quite precisely engineered for the day.
With a really significant cost to the musician in those days it meant that guitars of this era had to play well and last a long time, often to be passed on through family generations.
To create an instrument that evokes these traditional values, so often overlooked in our modern society, Tanglewood had to commission the services of a very special luthier, none other than Michael Sanden, the man behind Tanglewood Masterdesign. Michael is the creator of the Sanden Guitar company in Sweden, and now the chief design consultant for Tanglewood Guitars.
Tanglewood Guitars was formed in England in the latter part of the 20th century charged with an ambition to create a portfolio of instruments that would offer exceptional value through design features, both traditional & contemporary usually found on instruments at much higher prices. Although these days Tanglewood is as recognised for its Rebel Basses, or Cove Creek Banjo's as it is for 6 string guitars, it's real strength, and expertise is in the Acoustic instrument market.
Distributed in 50 countries globally, winner of the Music Industry award as UK's All Time Best Selling Acoustic Guitars, Tanglewood still push to innovate and add value.
Tanglewood want to excite and enthuse players the world over, with consummate craftsmanship & reliability, whether that be an Acoustic Bass, a Dreadnought Electro, or Solid Body Electric. Whatever a player chooses, Tanglewood usually have a model to fit that purpose, and put their name behind the quality of it...Trust Tanglewood.
