Tanglewood Discovery Guitar Package Reviewed by Guitarbitz
|Tanglewood Discovery Deluxe Acoustic Guitar Package|
The guitar itself is available in 2 versions. Both full sized adult guitars, the dreadnought with it's squarer body shape and the folk guitar which is a fair bit smaller and would be better for younger players, ladies and anyone of a smaller stature!
The headstock of both guitars is square, slightly wider at the far end, and finished in a gloss lacquer over the Mahogany, showing the stripy wood grain below.
The Mahogany neck feels very slim and easy going, a shallow D profile (shape), and has large white dot position markers. The fingerboard is Rosewood, and this is fully bound in white plastic up and down both sides, protecting the edges and frets.
The neck joins the Mahogany body at the 14th fret, this style of guitar is not designed for playing high up the neck! The back of the guitar is plain Mahogany, a deep red colour with the wood grain showing through the clear varnish. The back is bound in white plastic, and the Mahogany sides have a similar look.
The top of the guitar is a much lighter coloured Spruce, with a golden wood grain, again showing well through the lacquer. The round soundhole has an attractive rosette, a mixture of black and white lines with some green and purple Abalone thrown in too.
The Discovery Deluxe package also includes a decent quality 'road safety' guitar bag, with green light reflective strips on the back, a Tanglewood guitar strap, plectrums and tutorial DVD to get you going quickly.
The guitar plays very well too, Tanglewood have an excellent reputation for producing quality instruments, and the Discovery Deluxe has a bright and loud sound with lots of lively tones on offer, and plenty of playability.
Brilliant value for money, a top quality branded acoustic guitar package from Tanglewood with clearly the best guitar of any of our budget packs.
