Tanglewood Guitars was formed in England in the latter part of the 20th century.
Charged with an ambition to create a portfolio of instruments that would offer exceptional value through traditional & contemporary design, Tanglewood guitars exhibit craftsmanship and features typically reserved for instruments of much higher prices.
Though Tanglewood has achieved success in branching out into categories such as acoustic basses and banjos, the brand’s real strength and expertise lies in the acoustic guitar market. Distributed in 60 countries worldwide and officially recognized as the UK’s all time best-selling acoustic guitar brand, Tanglewood continuously pushes to innovate and provide incredible value for musicians with their instruments.
Whether it be an acoustic bass, a traditional dreadnought, a modern cutaway acoustic guitar equipped with electronics, or a tenor ukulele, Tanglewood’s mission is to excite and impassion players the world over with their consummate craftsmanship & incredible reliability.
At Tanglewood Guitars we do not purchase ANY timber unless it is from a legitimate, accredited supply source and compliant with Lacey act regulations. This is because we ship globally, have a reputation with our partners for transparency and ethically sound construction and of course many of the countries we supply now require this protocol as standard. One day we hope all countries will.
Our “exotic” wood sourcing is laminate only. We use veneers of exotic wood to increase the term of stock availability into what we know can be a sustainable supply.
We aim to be here, making instruments that our playing family will love for many years to come and hope our instruments will be passed down through the generations, so it’s important to us that our raw materials are always available to match demand.
