Re: tanglewood

I had a Tanglewood Classical guitar with a beautiful bubinga back. It was a great guitar with superb projection. I only sold it as I just didn't use it.

Re: tanglewood

Friend of mine (a really good guitarist) sold his Martin and bought a Tanglewood instead. Not sure which model, but it's mahogany (mostly), quite a small body - will try to find out more...

Re: tanglewood

We have two 60's Gibson 335's in the shop priced in excess of €2000.00 and beside them is a Tanglewood copy at €300.00. Howard, the owner of the shop, has owned one of the Gibsons from new and played it professionally until fairly recently and he has told me that the Tanglewood feels, plays and sounds just like the genuine article.

Re: tanglewood

Just bought a Tanglewood travel guitar, ( on Ebay )the look and finish is great! the intonation is rubbish! I have to capo the first fret to get on sort of sound from it.
