Tanglewood have an excellent reputation in the UK's sub £500 acoustic guitar market, they are the leading brand, and they have always made decent electric and bas guitars as well.
The all new Signature by Tanglewood TSB58 is their best electric ever though, a faithful LP style make for that £300 price point, with the most playability at this level.
Make no mistake, if you're after a Les Paul, this is THE BEST one we have seen at £300ish, and that includes Tokai, Epiphone and all the others. The Entwistle pickups are top quality with Alnico magnets, you get a solid Mahogany body with flame Maple veneer on the Cherry Sunburst version, and a neck that plays like a dream.
The headstock is small and compact, gloss black to the front with cream binding, a small 3 ply black truss rod cover and a beautiful green Abalone crown and Signature motif on the front. Very nice.
The back also has a gloss finish, with 2 rows of 3-a-side tuners in the Vintage Kluson style, Chrome die-cast with …
Received mine today. Thanks to Guitarbitz for the lightning fast turnaround time and for your brilliant 12 point check...the guitar plays beautifully! It's a basic guitar (no gloss finish, one pickup etc) but I have five other guitars already and just wanted a simple guitar to use for slide....and it looks very cool!!! Might not be suitable for a beginner as the neck is reasonably chunky (it's not huge but there are certainly other guitars out there with slimmer necks.) My only slight disappointment is that the guitar has a cheap looking logo on the headstock, with a white surround...completely different from the one on the guitar, pictured. Nothing to do with Guitarbitz, though, who are the best guitar store in the UK!!!

We all know that Vintage make some great guitars for the small price tag but just check out this STUNNING V100PGM Lemon Drop, what an amazing looking guitar!
Based on Peter Green's Gibson Les Paul, the V100PGM features a stunning flame Maple top, reverse neck pickup and the two style control knob configuration. It looks amazing but it also does the job in terms of sound, feel and playability. With punchy tones clean or driven it simply ticks all the boxes if you wan that classic Les Paul tone!
If you didn't know Peter Green played in Fleetwood Mac! Check out the real Peter Green Les Paul:
At just over £300 it is incredible value for money! These really are brilliant instruments for the money. And they look pretty darn similar too!
