Tanglewood X70 TE Torrefied Top Auditoium Electro Acoustic Guitar
The All Solid Wood Sundance Performance Pro X70 TE model is a traditional, hourglass figured Orchestra bodied guitar. The Orchestra’s classic hourglass figure means it sits comfortably on the knee, endearing it to players of folk and other fingerpicking-heavy styles of music. It features a hand selected premium AAA grade solid Spruce top, coupled with genuine Solid Mahogany back and sides.
Hall of Fame luthier Michael Sanden put together a special bracing pattern for the TW70 TE, which features traditional quarter sawn spruce in a tapered style, using a combination of X bracing and fan bracing. This arrangement recovers an outstanding flexibility and tonality from the AAA grade kiln aged solid spruce top, creating a much more stable top than standard bracing. The drawn out harmonic sustain and evenness of tone are testament to Michaels bracing system for sure.
