HERITAGE

Our Heritage Series celebrates the art of guitar craftsmanship. These handmade instruments are constructed entirely from solid woods, and each is characterized by an Ebony fingerboard and bridge, a genuine bone nut and saddle, a reinforcing neck volute, and tasteful inlays.

Each Heritage Series guitar is shipped in a deluxe hardshell wood case and includes a soundhole humidifier.

The Tanglewood T6 is a 60 watt compact acoustic amplifier with true digital reference effects - including Hall, Plate, Chorus, and Delay — and features inputs and outputs for every professional application. The T6’s two channels are perfectly suited to handle guitar and vocals, making it a great choice for singer/songwriters and gigging guitarists.

We’ve taken the same passion, attention to detail, and knowhow that we've put into building acoustic guitars for the past few decades, and focused it on an exciting family of Electric Guitars.

These instruments, available in several classic styles and retro-inspired finishes, offer incredible value and ultimate playability. Plug one in today and discover a whole new side of Tanglewood!

ELECTRIC BASSES

Overwater
Through more than three decades of production, the Overwater name has become synonymous with the finest handcrafted bass guitars in the UK. Over the years, the instruments produced by Chris May and co. have only ever been available in relatively limited numbers, usually to players willing to wait for a custom build and able to afford the inevitable price of ‘one off’ production. But it has long been an aspiration of Chris’ to be able to offer a line of Overwater instruments at prices available to everyone while maintaining the standards that his company has always stood for – that is, without compromise in design, build quality or playability. A special collaboration with Tanglewood has brought that vision to life.

Rebel Basses
These affordable, modern instruments are hard to beat for starter players, and offer incredible value even for more experienced gigging bassists. Our Rebel Basses feature quality Entwistle pickups: a PBX split pickup in the neck position and a JBX jazz style pickup in the bridge position.
