Tanglewood TW1000 - Deluxe Reviews
I bought this guitar in Dublin for 650, or STG£460.
I originally was looking for a semi-acoustic with cut-away. Having spent a couple of weekends going around different guitar stores and sampling Takimine, Ibanez, Washburns, Epiphone, I initially chose the Tanglewood TW15, a full wood semi with cut away and Shadow pick up and good natural tone. However, just before buying I had a look at the TW1000, a more compact guitar without cut-away. However, the sound was far superior to that of TW15 and the pick was a Fishman and not a Shadow. Therefore, I went for sound quality.
Overall, this is a fantastic sounding guitar that is very nice to play. The pick up is Fishman and the warm bassy/mid level tone given from the compact Rosewood body sets it apart from any other guitar in its price range and even those that were 400-500 more expensive. On a scale of 1-5, I give it a 4 for sound quality (it isn't a 2k or 3k guitar) and a 5 for value for money.Dec H rated this unit on 2003-09-01.
