6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

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.

Tanglewood Construction & Design

Tanglewood's Instruments reflect a perfect blend between time-honoured design philosophies and modern manufacturing methodologies. Designed by some of Europe's most celebrated Luthiers, each instrument is a manifestation of some of the finest tone woods available, produced with their factories' meticulous attention to detail. Each instrument is quality checked and set-up for optimum playability, ensuring a comfortable and consistent playing experience right from the first chord strummed.

Solid Spruce Top with Rosewood Body

The TSR 1 Master Design features a stunning, solid spruce top that yields crisp articulation and delivers a broad dynamic range. Its versatile solid spruce top delivers a sparkling high response and a tight, clear attack perfect for pronounced players. Additionally, its spruce top is accompanied by rosewood back and sides that produce a full, warm, bass response with a dark tonality that is ideal for a wide range of genres and playing styles. Together, this stunning mixture of solid timbers produces an incredibly balanced and versatile palette of tones.

Mahogany Neck & Zero Fret Ebony Fingerboard

Constructed from mahogany, the TSR 1's neck offers players a resonant soft warmth that responds greatly to numerous styles of play, genres and techniques, making it perfect for those with a more alternative playing style. With its superb response, the mahogany neck enables players to achieve a pure, full sound with the ability to clearly hear each chord strummed, and each note picked. In addition, the TSR 1 features a twin piece neck which offers more resistance against warping, providing stability and durability. The neck is topped with a zero fret ebony fingerboard that adds a bright attack and superb sustain to the overall tone. Its zero fret fingerboard offers precise intonation by placing a fret at the headstock end of the neck, enabling the strings to sit the correct distance above other frets on the TSR 1's fingerboard.

Auditorium Body

The TSR 1 features a compact, comfortable, and versatile body - the auditorium. The TSR 1 is the perfect size for those who find dreadnoughts a little too much to handle, but crave a guitar with more volume and projection than the smaller parlour sizes. Its shape and size make it one of the more versatile acoustic shapes known to guitarists, enabling players to achieve a wide range of genres and playing styles; from lighter folk-inspired fingerpicking to heavier strumming patterns and more alternative playing styles.

B-Band A1 Pickup

The TSR 1 comes equipped with the B-Band A1 pickup system, offering basic sound tweaking for live and rehearsal environments. The sophisticated system is situated within the soundhole and features sleek and subtle soundhole controls for a pure and clear sound. In addition, with its built-in electronics, the TSR 1 Master Design is perfect for the performing musicians.

Master Design Aesthetics

The TSR 1 offers players a truly beautiful appearance that was inspired and designed by Tanglewood and Michael Sanden. With Sanden's knowledge from building luxury boutique guitars, he designed a range that feature some of his most stylish, handcrafted appointments and construction methods; all made to a precise Sanden blueprint and incorporating Sanden's signature and most functional features. With Sanden's Japanese brushstroke bridge, classy unbranded headstock, abalone soundhole, and mahogany binding gives the TSR 1 a classy, high-end appearance, ideal for more serious performing musicians. Additionally, a stunning 'T' emblem is inlaid in green abalone and situated on the 12th fret, providing a small amount of branding for a tasteful sprinkle of Tanglewood's creativity.
