Inspired by nature and the raw beauty of classic timber, Roadster II instruments make a truly organic and understated natural statement. Tanglewood long pioneered the practise of sustainable forestry in the pursuit of their art and for this latest Roadster series they match finely graded Canadian Red Cedar tops with traditional Indonesian mahogany back and sides to produce tonally rich instruments that sound instantly wonderful tuned up right out of the box. Tanglewood call them Roadster because to them, their cosmetic appeal evokes a sense of being close to nature… just as driving a classic open top car with the wind in your hair!

Tanglewood's luthiers have to work especially hard in creating this look, finishing the smooth edging joins of the body very carefully because there is no binding added to the body of these models, therefore no margin for error. Roadster II Cedar tops are finished and sealed in high grade, low density satin lacquer and as well as capturing the stripped down raw timber cosmetic effect they envisaged on the drawing board, Tanglewood are sure this also adds to their sweet sounding sonic appeal.
