Building on the global success of the Tanglewood Crossroads range of instruments, the design team have created a whole new range of guitars, inspired by the cosmetic of 1940/50’s era US instruments with the class leading constructional signature of Michael Sanden and the Tanglewood artisanal team.


Every Blackbird model is carefully braced to provide a tight bottom end bass note and clear rich high spectrum resonance.


Tanglewood have bound each model in vintage ivory ABS materials to provide the look of Bakelite from the 40’s, and though this won’t affect the sound, it certainly helps give provenance to the historic look the design team wished to capture.


Finished in stunning rich smoky charcoal stained matt finish called “Smokestack Black“ . A modern take on a classic vibe!
