2011 Tanglewood TW40-PD – £349
NEW ARRIVAL Parlour guitars have become very popular recently – they work really well as couch guitars, and great songwriting tools. From their Sundance Delta Historic range, Tanglewood have produced a fine example at a surprisingly good price. It features a solid Mahogany top, with Mahogany back and sides, and Rosewood fingerboard and bridge. Parlour guitars can often focus too much on the trebles, but with a Mahogany top, this guitar produces surprising warmth and depth of tone. The guitar is in excellent condition, and the playability is comfortable, making the whole playing experience very enjoyable.
