Popular UK guitar revamped and headed for U.S. markets
West Yorkshire, England (December 5, 2007) - Another British invasion will occur early next year when Tanglewood Guitar Company UK will showcase their updated wares at NAMM. Tanglewood Guitar Co. UK was voted by UK’s leading major and independent music industry retailers as the # 1 selling acoustic guitar brand under $1,000.
"What we’re most proud of is that it was the music retailers themselves who identified Tanglewood Guitar Co. UK as the top brand. That kind of endorsement is invaluable. And what UK retailers see in these guitars, North American retailers will see as well,” said Jeff Sazant, VP Musical Instrument Division at Musiquip, Tanglewood Guitar Co UK’s distributor in the USA.
Although Tanglewood Guitar Co. UK was featured in previous NAMM events, the UK guitar company went through substantial changes for the American market that will be unveiled at Winter NAMM.
The company plans to spotlight two new series of guitars: the high-end, all-solid wood Heritage series guitars and the entry-level Evolution series. According to Tanglewood Guitar Co. UK, these guitars are a blend of time-honored design philosophies and modern manufacturing methods.
Sazant hopes the success Tanglewood Guitar Co. UK has enjoyed in UK will be reproduced in the USA and Canada on the coat tails of these new guitars.

You can get everything from fat rhythm tones to a perfect lead tone just by using your guitar’s volume knob and your right-hand attack.

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.
