Tanglewood Roadster II Folk Size - Left Handed (TWR2 O LH)
This Roadster II model is our left handed Folk size acoustic.
It has a Canadian Spruce top married to an Indonesian Mahogany back and sides for a classic voice tone.
We created this model after being inspired by Folk shaped left handed guitars that Paul McCartney often plays, and knowing everyone may not have the same purchase budget, we’ve tried to make the guitar as competitively priced as we can without sacrificing the integrity of the components.
Our tapered bracing system helps the guitar project really well, the Spruce top gives an instant warm tone right out of the box, and we believe any player will be inspired after playing a while on this lovely instrument.
|SHAPE||Left Handed Orchestra/Folk|

Inspired by nature and the raw beauty of classic timber, Roadster II instruments make a truly organic and understated natural statement. We’ve long pioneered the practise of sustainable forestry in the pursuit of our art and for this latest Roadster series we match finely graded Canadian Spruce tops with traditional Indonesian mahogany back and sides to produce tonally rich instruments that sound instantly wonderful tuned up right out of the box.
We call them Roadster because to us, 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!
Our 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 Spruce tops are finished and sealed in high grade, low density satin lacquer and as well as capturing the stripped down raw timber cosmetic effect we envisaged on the drawing board, we are sure this also adds to their sweet sounding sonic appeal.
