Tonewoods

The TPE DC DLX Electro Acoustic Guitar features a solid AA Englemann spruce top which delivers a richly mellow tone with a broad dynamic range that accommodates any playing style with ease. This stunning A-grade tonewood provides crisp articulation and a fundamental tone, which gives the guitar's sound plenty of direct power. With the combined tiger stripe mahogany body, this model offers a clear and direct focus, along with a stunning dark grain. Mahogany is a very dense tonewood and a popular choice for guitars, due to it delivering a full, rich sound with added punch. The sound is warm, open and clear, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. Its stunning grain offers a high quality instrument that will stand out from any crowd.

Dreadnought Body Shape

The Tanglewood TPE DC DLX features a dreadnought body shape, which is one of the most popular guitar shapes around. With its elegant curves, this shape offers a versatile voice that is evenly balanced across the tonal spectrum, and sits well in any mix. In addition, this popular body shape accommodates many different playing styles, making it a favourite choice among acoustic players.

Cutaway Design

Along with its dreadnought body shape, this beautiful tiger striped mahogany guitar also features a stylish cutaway design. The main benefit of this popular design is easier access to the higher frets, and fluid hand flexibility across the whole fingerboard.

Fishman INK Preamp

As well as providing you with stunning looks and acoustic tone, this guitar is equipped with a Fishman INK onboard preamp. Its discreet side-mounted control panel provides you with an easy-to-reach EQ section that doesn't take away from the overall aesthetics. Players can also benefit from a built-in chromatic tuner, for quick and precise tuning between songs.

D'Addario EXP strings for the Final Ingredient

Finally, the TPE DC DLX Electro Acoustic Guitar is complete with a set of D’Addario EXP steel strings, which feature hexagonal cores made of revolutionary NY High Carbon Steel. Manufactured in New York, these newly engineered, break-resistant, high-carbon strings deliver unprecedented strength and pitch stability.
