NEW Sundance Natural Series2015-07-06 00:00:00
Tanglewood Guitar Company UK, the United Kingdom's best-selling acoustic guitar brand, recently introduced its Sundance Natural range of guitars to North America.
The stripped-down instruments feature Tanglewood's Open Pore technology: a thin film sealant is applied the finishing process, through which the wood grain can be seen and felt. This proprietary process allows the body to breathe and resonate more freely, striking a perfect balance between protection and tone. As a result, Sundance Natural instruments achieve a "played-in" sound right out of the box, with the bass and middle registers accentuated, and the treble tones similar to instruments with a more traditional lacquer finish.
The Dreadnought and Orchestra models boast a solid spruce top paired with a mahogany back and sides, while the TW45W-OP-E Super Folk model sports a unique solid cedar / American black walnut tonewood combination. Maple body and fretboard bindings add a tasteful finishing touch to the otherwise no-frills design.
