Tanglewood Crossroads CRO.jpg

Very nice and affordable roots guitar from the Tanglewood Crossroads series.  Gererally the orchestra model is considered to be the most all-round design. Good for both strumming and fingerpicking.

The Crossroads series pays homage to the style and sound of classic instruments from 1930’s America. The 30’s were a time of hardship all across the USA with the Great Depression bringing communities to their knees and the strife and pain of poverty and famine recorded in journals and diaries and of course in song, all across the country. Some of what are now regarded as the finest and most influential musicians in the world created a rhythmic sound during those years and sang of their troubles, a sound we now think of as the blues.

The guitars used to play this music weren’t fancy, or ornately decorated or adorned with expensive lacquers, they were straightforward and functional.

The Whiskey Barrel Burst satin finish to compliment the earthy, naturally authentic signature of the Crossroads was inspired by the look of old whiskey barrels of the last century and was exclusively created for this series.
