COMPACT FOLK BODY PROFILE
The TWUF Union is shaped to Tanglewood's folk body profile, which offers a diminuitive shape compared to that of a dreadnought. The slimmer body depth is coupled with sleek curves that establish a figure-hugging playing feel. The mahogany body generates a powerful mid-range energy that is infused with warmth and power. The solid mahogany soundboard projects with vigour, ensuring that the fullness of the acoustic timbre springs forth gleefully. Due to the warmer sound of the mahogany, highs are tempered to so that a darker tonal delivery is assured. Thanks to the use of solid mahogany, the wood will develop and mature over time, so that the more it is played, the more unique its character. Thanks to a subtle coating of natural satin, the smooth and tactile feel of the body remains throughout the most enthusiastic of performances.
Joined to the body is a durable mahogany neck, which is shaped to a rounded profile that sits just right in the hand. The generous 650mm scale length guarantees an articulate response across each and every note. Paired with the neck is an eboncore fingerboard, which is equipped with 20 frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to guide you. The smooth satin finish allows your hand to glide along the neck unimpeded for seamless transitions along its entire length.
The body is home to a black walnut bridge and ABS white saddle, which anchors each string to optimise intonation and sustain, ensuring resonant transference between the strings and body is maximised for a glorious output. The headstock is home to chrome die-cast tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision. Each model is strung with phosphor bronze 12-53-gauge strings so that you're good to go as soon as your Tanglewood TWUF Union Folk Acoustic Guitar arrives.
