Tanglewood Union Folk Acoustic, Natural Mahogany
No Frills Quality Performance
The Tanglewood Union Folk Acoustic Guitar focuses on performance and playability. The natural satin finish and lack of any ornate decorations means that Tanglewood can give you a solid mahogany topped guitar at an excellent price-point. While the natural satin could be seen as a cost-saving measure, the satin finish does actually provide a more smooth and tactile feel. It is also a thinner finish than gloss and lets the wood 'breathe' more for enhanced resonance and sustain; many guitars are purposefully spec'd with this finish in order to gain these benefits.
The Union Folk Acoustic Guitar puts all the focus on the player, and it delivers a solid wood top, all mahogany body and neck, and chrome die cast tuners for tuning stability. This is the ideal instrument for developing players and value-seeking professionals.
Solid Mahogany Top
A guitar gets its 'voice' from the top material, as solid woods are inherently more resonant and stable. Mahogany gives a lovely warm tone with depth and nuance. The mahogany back and sides help to project that tone, giving the stability needed for acoustic volume.
Mahogany Neck / Eboncore Fingerboard
The mahogany neck assists with sustain and resonance while the satin finish (as mentioned) is light enough to let the woods 'breathe' and resonate more fully. The Union Folk 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.
Folk Body Shape
The folk body shape (otherwise called Orchestra) is a mid-sized guitar. Its curvaceous design sits comfortably in the lap and provides a smooth playing experience and a very balanced tonality with an equal blend of lows and highs. The mahogany woods naturally emphasise the mid-range, making this guitar appropriate for all styles of music.
