The Crossroads series pays homage to
the style & sound of classic instruments from 1930’s America.
Tanglewood set out to create an instrument that evokes these
traditional values, & commissioned the services of a very special
luthier, Michael Sanden, the man behind Tanglewood Masterdesign.
Michael is the creator of the Sanden Guitar company in Sweden, and
now the chief design consultant for Tanglewood Guitars.
Michael started with the tree, selecting timbers that will sound
good together, making the soundboards a precise measurement so they
will flex and respond to the players attack, and then he braces the
instrument with his own patterns to make each instrument have its
own personality. It’s not just the special bracing, or the woods
that are selected, or the construction method even.
All these are vital components for any guitar… but on Crossroads
Michael wanted to create something very special. He wanted to make a
guitar that could have the sound that any musician, professional or
amateur could appreciate. He wanted to make the guitar look
authentic to the 1930’s era, adding a wonderful dark tobacco burst
stain to the timbers to make the Crossroads guitars look historic
and simply elegant. And he demanded that the neck profiles and
bridge contouring and fret inlaying should be implemented without
regard to the price of manufacturing, to proudly reflect the
Tanglewood ethos of outstanding value and performance.
