Tanglewood Guitars Updates its Premier Series

The guitars are fitted with NuBone nuts and saddles, D'Addario EXP strings, and a B-Band Crescent pick-up system.

Montreal, Canada (August 20, 2014) -- Tanglewood Guitar Company UK, the United Kingdom’s best-selling acoustic guitar brand, has revamped its Premier Series - one of the company's most long-standing and most popular ranges.

The third and newest generation of Premier Series instruments features solid AA Sitka spruce tops on all models, giving the guitars a robust tone that retains its clarity even under heavier strumming. Backs, sides, and necks are mahogany, and the bodies are finished in Natural Satin. The guitars are fitted with NuBone nuts and saddles, D'Addario EXP strings, and a B-Band Crescent pick-up system on electro-acoustic models. A 12th fret mother-of-pearl crown inlay and green abalone rosette contribute to the aesthetic elegance of the instruments.

Five new models will be available in North America (one of which, the Super Folk six-string, will also be available left-handed).

Suggested retail prices and details:

TW115-SS-CE | 739.00 Dreadnought cutaway with B-Band Crescent pickup

Though not the first, the Charlie Christian pickup was at the vanguard of the shift to electric guitars.

It’s easy to gripe about change, but us guitarists have always had to embrace new technology.

California has always been the place of dreams for young Americans: Hollywood, surf music, pop music, psychedelia, hot rods, biker culture, and glam metal. The Golden State’s only real pop-culture competition has traditionally been New York City, and we know that the beaches and forests are better on the Pacific side. Recently, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order requiring that, starting in 2035, all new passenger cars and light trucks sold in the state must be zero-emissions vehicles. Once again, Cali leads by example, and what once was unthinkable becomes reality. Strangely, this EV revolution reminds me of the emergence of the electric guitar.
