Spruce Top & Ovangkol Body
The Discovery Super Folk features a stunning spruce top that offers a broad dynamic range, versatility, crisp articulation, and accommodates numerous playing techniques with ease. The wood itself is quite elastic in nature, which resonates well whilst remaining strong, and provides a focused, clear sound of deep lows, warm midi-range, and bright singing highs. The spruce top is contrasted beautifully by the ovangkol back and sides which produces a deep, defined low response with a punchy and powerful high response. Ovangkol originates from West Africa and has a unique appearance with a smooth golden grain. Blended with its spruce top, the Discovery Super Folk offers a superb tone perfect for folk and folk-inspired genres.
Mahogany Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard
The reason why many guitar necks are made from mahogany is because the wood responds greatly to picking styles, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. The mahogany neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that delivers a warm, bright, and sparkly tone that really shines through when using finger picking techniques. Rosewood fingerboards also offers a smooth and energetic play. The neck is finished in natural open pore satin for a sleek, smooth, stunning appearance. The mahogany neck offers durability, strength, and added rich-warmth blended with great playability for the players pleasure.
Tanglewood's Super Folk Body
The Tanglewood Discovery features one of Tanglewood's most iconic body shapes, the Super Folk. Tanglewood began by shaping the guitar to specs of the modern industry for great playability, we now have the well-crafted super folk cutaway. The shape was first introduced over 25 years ago on their award winning TW45 Sundance Pro guitar. The super folk cutaway body has become a must have among folk players because it's a bigger version of traditional folk guitars, offering more volume and tone, in a comfortable shape. The cutaway design enables players to reach more challenging chords with ease. The super folk can handle many genres with equal ease, and will cut through a live mix greatly. The Discovery is especially perfect for those who specialise in the folk genre and finger-picking techniques.
Tanglewood TEQ-3BT On-Board Preamp & Tuner
The Discovery comes equipped with Tanglewood's own on-board preamp and tuning system, offering precise tuning and personalised tonal setup. Featuring: low, mid, high, and volume rotary controls and easy ready screen for tuning purposes. Offering back lit stage tuning, three controllable EQ bands in a compact and sophisticated system, also providing the same active power source as those found on Tanglewood's most premium priced guitars.
Tanglewood Discovery Styling
The Tanglewood Super Folk features premium tonewoods to offer a rich, smooth tone and an attractive natural finish. The DBT-SFCE-OV is beautifully crafted, and boasts simplistic, yet sophisticated design, signature of Tanglewood aesthetics. The spruce top and ovangkol body is complemented by genuine maple binding, and traditional sound-hole rosette for a classy, quality Tanglewood finish. Tanglewood's brand logo graces the dark colour headstock accompanied by chrome die cast machineheads topped with black buttons.
