Building on the global success of our Crossroads range of instruments, our design team have created a whole new range of guitars, inspired by the cosmetic of 1940/50’s era US instruments with the class leading constructional signature of Michael Sanden and the Tanglewood team.
Every Blackbird model is carefully braced to provide a tight bottom end bass note and clear rich high spectrum resonance.
We have bound each model in vintage ivory ABS materials to provide the look of Bakelite from the 40’s, and though this won’t affect the sound, it certainly helps give provenance to the historic look our design team wished to capture, and to our mind, they have done a wonderful job.
As part of Tanglewoods' sophisticated 'Blackbird' series of instruments, this 1940's/50's Americana-inspired guitar boasts vintage-styled appointments, superb playability and a rich Smokestack Black Satin finish that charms the eye as much as the ears.
With a rich warm mahogany construction, including a hand-selected top, you're treated to warm, earthy tones and superior sonic projection - ideal for both stage and studio!
