Auditorium Body Shape
The Tanglewood Masterdesign features the auditorium body shape, which provides a comfortable playing experience due to its size and curvaceous shape. The auditorium is the perfect half way size between dreadnought and parlour, meaning its sleek hourglass figure sits comfortably on the knee, ideal for folk styled players. The shape was designed to bring the perfect balance between playing and comfort, offering a great projection and balanced tone, within a comfortable size.
Solid Spruce & Mahogany Body
The Tanglewood Masterdesign features a beautiful solid spruce top that provides broad dynamic range and crisp articulation. Spruce is the most commonly used wood for guitar tops as it generates a dynamic tonal pallet and accommodates numerous playing techniques. The wood itself is quite elastic in nature, which resonates well whilst remaining strong, and provides a focused, clear sound of deep lows, warm midi-range, and bright singing highs. This is balanced out well by the mahogany back and sides, as mahogany is denser and produces a richer tone, with emphasised warmth in the mid and low ranges. The mahogany back and sides offer a rich characterised warmth, and is well-balanced with a bite of its own. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world, because it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant. The Tanglewood Masterdesign is also equipped with the B-Band A1 preamp with a simple soundhole rotary control for added volume.
Mahogany Neck Topped With Ebony Fingerboard
The Masterdesign neck is made from mahogany and responds greatly to picking, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. The mahogany neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard that provides a very responsive bright, snappy, and crisp attack, coupled with a smooth sustain and bright top-end. The Masterdesign has Tanglewood's signature 'T' brand logo, and is finished in natural satin for a sophisticated look and smooth play.
The Tanglewood Masterdesign is a well-designed guitar that is dressed with an eye for detail. For added elegance the Masterdesign features a stunning sound-hole rosette inlaid in mother-of-pearl providing added elegance to an already aesthetically pleasing guitar. Its solid spruce top is complemented by flame maple binding, offering quality tone and stunning appearance. The neck is dressed with a signature Tanglewood 'T' brand logo, inlaid in mother-of-pearl, which shimmer beautifully when caught against both stage and natural light. The Masterdesign is finished in natural gloss, with contrasting gold hardware, gold grover machineheads topped with black buttons, which together add an expensive feel to a very pleasing aesthetic.

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.
For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.
This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
