Melville, NY (July 26, 2018) -- British guitar brand Tanglewood Guitars have announced the new Sundance Performance Pro series; a line of premium acoustic guitars that feature classic designs, solid wood construction, premium electronics and custom-fitted hard shellcases. These new models were crafted after years of extensive research and manufacturing and aim to deliver the player with authentic acoustic sounds and an overall memorable playing experience.

The new Sundance series offers six special handcrafted models, each one crafted with solid tonewoods, including mahogany, cedar, and spruce. Select models in the line feature Fishman Presys+ electronics and torrefied tops, a specialized technique that speeds up the aging process, producing richer and fuller sounding tones.

The Sundance Performance Pro will be available in July 2018 with prices starting at $699.99.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
