The Crossroads Concept


Master Scandinavian designer and luthier, Michael Sanden, hand selected the finest mahogany to craft the Tanglewood Crossroads series of acoustic guitars. Inspired by the understated, simple design of instruments during the economic downfall of 1930’s era in America, where the selection of the highest quality tonewoods was fundamental. The resulting guitars were deep and rich in tone whilst remaining affordable.

Michael took this concept and hand selected the timbers, making the tops a precise measurement so they flex and respond to the players attack. He then braced the instrument with his own patterns to give each guitar its own personality. The finished product is a guitar with amazing playability and would have the sound that any musician, professional or amateur could appreciate.

Body Characteristics



The Crossroad series offers a durable, all mahogany body delivering an incredibly deep, rich and warm tone, with a focused, punchy mid-range and shimmering highs.

Mahogany is highly favoured in the acoustic guitar world, due to its tonal qualities, durability and attractive grain pattern. This versatile timber is also easy to work as well as being relatively economical. When selected as a top wood, mahogany offers a natural compression, creating strong fundamentals with a clear and direct focus. Used as back and sides panels, the tonewood provides a beefy mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will accommodate most playing styles.

The smooth mahogany neck features a Techwood fingerboard offering fast and comfortable playability.

The orchestra body shape provides a strong lower midrange and an impressive bass response due to its deep shape.

Hardware consists of an attractive, shaped Techwood bridge with white ABS saddle, white ABS nut, accurate chrome die cast machine heads and light gauge bronze strings.
