Tanglewood DBT-F-EB-LH student / folk sized acoustic guitar LEFT HAND

Another GREAT guitar from Tanglewood, this time a LEFT HANDER.
Well made with great tone, it’s another top value guitar from this British company.

Folk (Orchestra) Body

The Tanglewood Discovery Exotic features a folk shaped body (otherwise called Orchestra), providing a smooth playing experience and a curvaceous design which sits comfortably in the lap. Its nipped in waste and sleek sides provide extra comfort and a well-balanced tone, with an equal blend of lows and highs. The Discovery Exotic Folk Acoustic can handle many different genres and styles of play, offering an ideal guitar for both intermediate and advanced players.
Spruce Top & Ebony Body

The Tanglewood Discovery is crafted with a solid spruce top and an ebony body, offering a traditional appearance and an incredibly bright sounding, rich tone. The spruce top produces a crisp, versatile tone suitable for many styles of playing, and an un-muddied sound which will retain its clarity when you strum hard. The wood itself is quite elastic in nature, which resonates well whilst remaining strong, and provides a focused, clear sound of deep lows, warm mids, and bright singing highs. The versatile spruce top blends beautifully well with the Discovery’s ebony body, projecting a crisp attack, great sustain, and excellent durability. The ebony body projects lots of overtones, produces an immensely bright tone, combined with its spruce top and mahogany neck, provides you with melodic tonal fusion.
Mahogany Neck & Eboncore Fingerboard

The mahogany neck assists with sustain and resonance, while the satin finish is light enough to let the woods ‘breathe’ and resonate more fully. The Discovery Exotic Folk Guitar has an eboncore fingerboard; a composite material with a balanced response across its whole length. Eboncore (and other similar materials) are increasingly being used, representing the fact that many different brands are now looking towards more environmentally-responsible materials for guitar production. The eboncore has the look and feel of wood – close your eyes and you’d never know.
