The Tanglewood Roadster II dreadnought is inspired by the instrument shape so revered across musical generations.
From Elvis to the Eagles, Led Zeppelin to Clapton, so many great songs have been written and immortalised on instruments of this body style, so we have to always have this model available to meet demand. We use a Canadian Spruce top, braced in a tapered system with quarter-sawn spruce, to give an instant aural appeal straight out of the box.
With the aim to maintain the classically understated natural look of the Tanglewood Roadster 2 in our styling, and it’s one of the few models ranges we have that looks both contemporary yet slightly vintage at the same time.
ROADSTER II SERIES
Inspired by nature & the raw beauty of classic timber, Roadster II instruments make a truly organic & understated natural statement.
We’ve long pioneered the practice of sustainable forestry in the pursuit of our art and for this latest Roadster series, we match finely graded Canadian Red Cedar tops with traditional Indonesian mahogany back and sides to produce tonally rich instruments that sound instantly wonderful tuned up right out of the box.
Our luthiers have to work especially hard in creating their look, finishing the smooth edging joins of the body very carefully because there is no binding added to the body of these models, therefore no margin for error. Cedar tops are finished and sealed in high grade, low-density satin lacquer and as well as capturing the stripped down raw timber cosmetic effect we envisaged on the drawing board, we are sure this also adds to their sweet sounding sonic appeal.
