Tanglewood Sundance Performance Pro X47 E

Tanglewood’s Sundance Performance Pro Series is the culmination of decades of guitar building expertise and research.

 

The Sundance Performance Pro X47 E model is a stunning Super Folk Cutaway Electro with onboard Fishman Electronics for optimum stage performance. This model features a hand selected superior AAA grade solid Mahogany top, matched with genuine all solid Mahogany back and sides. The X47 E is a phenomenal guitar for the professional player and due to it’s smaller body size is ideal for either male or female players.

Scandinavia’s most acclaimed luthier, Michael Sanden, has specially designed a combination of X bracing and fan bracing, all using quarter sawn spruce in a tapered style. This arrangement gives a superior flexibility and tonality from the AAA solid Mahogany, creating a more stable top than typical bracing. The uniformity of tone and long sustain are testament to Michaels bracing system.

Mahogany was chosen for the soundboard on this model by Michael Sanden as Mahogany-topped guitars exhibit a strong ‘punchy’ tone that is well-suited to country blues playing. The Mahogany gives a warmer sound and the more it is played, the more it develops overtones that contribute to a fuller, richer sound.

The mahogany used for the back and sides density can add great projection, adding warmth, but with definition, and a ‘woody’ character. Mahogany traditionally is a solid wood, with a sombre finish, and close grain. The combination of cedar and mahogany is a popular choice as it creates a tone that is very balanced, but versatile, lending itself very well to most musical styles. Besides serving to form the enclosure of the soundbox, the back and sides of the guitar also act as a sympathetic resonator whose oscillations contribute greatly to the harmonic mix.

Mahogany is used for the neck in this model as it gives the guitar excellent strength lengthwise. The neck is constructed with a traditional dove tail join. They are C-shaped in a smooth comfortable oval profile that works well for most playing styles.

The chrome Grover buttons were chosen as Grover are recognised worldwide as industry leaders for high-quality machine heads.

Elixir Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze 12-53 Light E16052 Acoustic Guitar Strings were selected for the Sundance Performance Pro range. Phosphor bronze strings offer the most sensitive, expressive tone that brings out the very best in guitars—virtually taking them to a higher level of play. However, that tone can be short-lived. Elixir Strings has solved this classic conundrum by applying an ultra-thin layer of NANOWEB Coating to protect the string’s windings hence preserving the coveted phosphor bronze tone. Many players prefer the rich, textured tone of phosphor bronze strings. These Elixir Strings capture the sweet spot of that unique phosphor bronze tone and extend it 3-5x longer than conventional strings.

For the electronics on the Sundance Performance Pro series we selected the Fishman Presys+. The Presys+ onboard preamp system is designed to offer maximum control, performance and quality in a small, unobtrusive format. The compact sophisticated Presys+ system features Volume, Bass, Mid and Treble controls, a Phase switch, and a built-in tuner with LED display.

The guitar is finished in a high gloss natural polyurethane finish, which, coupled with the dark all mahogany body gives it an exceptional look and feel.

"Hi Stuart, Collings is brilliant. Thanks so much for sorting. Excellent work. Are you on Facebook or Twitter? I'll post a blurb. Best wishes."
Brooks Williams

"Well I went in yesterday and I needed a amp for a gig last night and the staff were very friendly. They help me out loads and they was just genuine people not people try to push sales like in shops like Xxxxxxx."
Hayden Guitarist

"I live in Spain and for the first time I ordered a guitar from Electromusic, a Turner CLS-01E. I would like to say that the attention was very good, and it's been a very pleasant transaction. Also I'm very happy with the guitar. I asked Pete for advice, since I hadn't had the chance to try it before, I had only tried a different Turner model, which I loved, and I had only listened to the CLS-01E on a video on youtube, played by Clive Gregson. It sounded great in the video, but I wanted to have the opinion of a professional. Pete said he vouched for the quality, and I ordered it based partly on the video and to a large extent on Pete's advice. For all of it, I want to thank Pete, who was the one I was in touch with, and the shop."
Alberto
(Guitarist)

"The nice thing about Electromusic is that since I first visited your original shop as a young drummer ( with a waistline ,hair ,shades and ego )  your business ethic has remained the same. Everyone is given star treatment by people who really know their stuff. Maybe the shop is now many times larger, but you have retained the vital elements of friendly professional service, problem solving and attention to detail and customer satisfaction .  Not to mention great products at competitive prices - Try getting all of this on line.."
John Drummer (and struggling Guitarist)

"I had been told by my local guitar shops that I may stand a chance of getting one of the last ones and have had one on order since February. After visiting your website yesterday morning I am now the proud owner of one within 24 hours. It really is a breath of fresh air to deal with a company who gets it right. Thanks again."
Andy Mandolin Player

"I've been up and down the country in guitar shops and this place is DEFINITELY the best, without a shadow of doubt."
Greg Guitar Player

"These days service like yours is virtually nonexistent and we’re very quick to complain, so I would just like to thank you both very much for all your help and advice in helping me come to my decision. You’re exactly what a great guitar store should be. I would just like to say what a pleasure it was."
Mike Guitar Player
