Tanglewood X70 TE (As New) - SOLD
An beautiful solid wood guitar for a bargain price. It would suit any player up to professional and beyond. The All Solid Wood Sundance Performance Pro X70 TE model is a traditional, hourglass figured Orchestra bodied guitar. The Orchestra’s classic hourglass figure means it sits comfortably on the knee, endearing it to players of folk and other fingerpicking-heavy styles of music. It features a hand selected premium AAA grade solid Spruce top, coupled with genuine Solid Mahogany back and sides.Hall of Fame luthier Michael Sanden put together a special bracing pattern for the TW70 TE, which features traditional quarter sawn spruce in a tapered style, using a combination of X bracing and fan bracing. This arrangement recovers an outstanding flexibility and tonality from the AAA grade kiln aged solid spruce top, creating a much more stable top than standard bracing. The drawn out harmonic sustain and evenness of tone are testament to Michaels bracing system. If you need more information, get in touch and we can Zoom or Facetime with the Guitar.

Orchestra Body Shape
This stunning guitar features an Orchestra body shape which delivers a superb resonant tone. Its curvy body shape and nipped in waist is ideal for fingerstylists, and players who specialise in Folk. The Orchestra body shape is also perfect for seated players, as it easily fits any player's knee.
Torrefied Solid Spruce Top
This stunning Sundance Performance Pro Orchestra features a torrefied spruce top. The innovative process of torrefication involves a kiln drying technique where the spruce is 'cooked', to reduce the moisture levels. This process delivers a unique sound, and an instrument with a resonant and stable tone, as if it were 30 years old.
Mahogany has long been considered as one of the highest quality tonewoods, due to it offering a lush, warm voice and enhanced dynamic range that responds to every nuance of your playing. Mahogany is primarily known for its woody and punchy tones, with an incredible sustain, and is popular amongst blues and bluegrass players.
For that added quality, the Sundance Performance Pro guitar features traditional quarter sawn spruce bracing in a tapered style, using a combination of X bracing and fan bracing. This traditional construction offers excellent flexibility and tone, and incredible stability. Bracing also provides an even tone and bell harmonics, for an enjoyable performance.
Comfortable Mahogany Neck
Like others in this series, the Orchestra Electro Acoustic guitar also features a comfortable C-shaped mahogany neck, constructed with a traditional dove tail join. The popular C-shaped neck profile offers comfort, and accommodates most playing styles.
For that added sound at large events, the Sundance Performance Pro Orchestra guitar is equipped with Fishman Presys+. The Presys+ is an onboard preamp system, designed to offer maximum control, performance and quality in a small, unobtrusive format that doesn't take away from the traditional appearance. Players can easily shape their sound using the discreet sidemount, with options for Volume, Bass, Mid and Treble, as well as a Phase switch. If that's not enough, a built-in tuner with LED display is also included, for precise intonation on the fly.
Finally, the Sundance Performance Pro Orchestra is equipped with a set of Elixir Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze 12-53 Light E16052 Acoustic Guitar Strings. These high-quality strings provide a sensitive, expressive tone that captures every nuance of your playing. Each string is coated with an ultra-thin layer of Nanoweb coating to protect the string’s windings, and delivering an excellent tone. As well as providing the optimum tone, they also offer an enhanced longevity.
