Tanglewood TWR2 PE
Inspired by nature and the raw beauty of classic timber, Roadster II instruments make a truly organic and understated natural statement. They’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 Spruce tops with traditional Indonesian mahogany back and sides to produce tonally rich instruments that sound instantly wonderful tuned up right out of the box.
They call them Roadster because to us, their cosmetic appeal evokes a sense of being close to nature… just as driving a classic open-top car with the wind in your hair!
Their luthiers have to work especially hard in creating this look, finishing the smooth edging joins of the body very carefully because there is no binding added to the body of these models, therefore is no margin for error. Roadster II Spruce tops are finished and sealed in high-grade, low-density satin lacquer, and as well as capturing the stripped down raw timber cosmetic effect they envisaged on the drawing board, they are sure this also adds to their sweet sounding sonic appeal.
