A Guide to Tanglewood Acoustic Guitars

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:
Have a look through their product line-up and you'll see a wide selection of body styles, tonewoods, colours, features, and prices. From entry-level to top-of-line acoustics, you'll find your next guitar!

(FINGER) PICKING YOUR TANGLEWOOD GUITAR
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.
