WHY BUY TANGLEWOOD?


Tanglewood Guitars built a strong reputation as a manufacturer of high-quality acoustic instruments that reflect a perfect blend of traditional designs and modern manufacturing innovations, offering a thorough selection of UK-designed instruments for players of all levels, employing some of the finest tonewoods available.

A GUITAR FOR ALL TYPES OF PLAYER

Some brands specialize in affordable instruments which may be pretty good for beginners but not suitable for more experienced players and pros, while other brands do the opposite, making high-quality gear that is not affordable to many. Tanglewood, however, has a wide range of acoustic guitars that won't blow your budget and that can also be great instruments for professional musicians performing live:

Take That with Tanglewood

Out of all the major brands of acoustic guitars, no-one else makes so many different models at such a good price. They are the best value-for-money guitars right now.

(FINGER) PICKING YOUR TANGLEWOOD GUITAR

tanglewood guitar sizes

These were just examples of some of the very diverse guitars Tanglewood manufactures. If you have trouble deciding what kind of guitar shape suits you, here's a rough guide:

Folk / Parlour / Auditorium / Orchestra guitars: Smaller body sizes, good for finger-picking guitar style

Jumbo / Super Jumbo / Dreadnought: Larger body sizes, fuller sound, good for strumming.

Super Folk / Grand Orchestra / Grand Auditorium: Sitting somewher in-between, they are good for both.

Of course, you can play anything on any guitar, but usually we consider smaller guitars, with a more "focused" sound, better for finger-picking, and larger guitar, with a fuller and bassier sound, perfect for strumming.
