The Tanglewood Crossroads Super Folk Electro Acoustic Guitar features an elegant body shape, especially designed to accommodate Folk style performances. Crafted with a spruce top and mahogany body, the TWCR SFCE produces a range of earthy tones with plenty of projection, perfect for any style of playing. Its whiskey barrel burst satin finish offers a smooth feel, and also enhances the natural acoustic resonance, for a superb tone.
The Crossroads yields a powerful projection and a great tone with its combination of mahogany with spruce. Spruce is the soundboard choice for most guitars due to it offering a broad dynamic range. Its combination of strength and elasticity delivers crisp articulation that accommodates a versatile range of playing styles from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking. In addition to this popular soundboard, mahogany delivers a warm and woody tone with a slightly emphasised mid range, and also offers a balanced tone that accommodates a versatile range of different playing styles. Mahogany is an ideal choice for those looking for one instrument that can handle many styles, and when combined with a spruce soundboard you can achieve a truly versatile tone.
Pickup & Preamp
With its superb choice of tonewoods offering a great acoustic tone, the TWCR SFCE is also equipped with a TW-EX4 pickup and preamp, along with a host of control options for added volume at bigger events. A discreet sidemounted EQ is located on the upper bout, and features a 4-band EQ, as well as a chromatic tuner with slider controls. This compact unit is ideal when you require a bit more projection for bigger audiences.
Bronze Light Strings
The TWCR SFCE Crossroads is also equipped with a set of Phosphor bronze light strings from D’Addario which deliver a superb, long-lasting tone and comfortable playability. This is one of D’Addario’s most popular acoustic guitar string sets due to its warm, bright, and well balanced acoustic tone, along with excellent intonation.
