Smooth feel, responsive nature
The Blackbird takes on a curvaceous, comfortable orchestra body. It's compact, but kicks out a delicious sonic impact. And it's perfect for a multitude of musical scenarios. Bringing you fantastic projection, volume, and definition. This is a mid-sized body that makes honing your skill and practicing new techniques a breeze.
A classic hourglass. The Tanglewood TWBBO Blackbird is shallower and narrower than a dreadnought, but beefier than a dinky parlour. Perfect for holding close to your body, and popping on your lap, the Blackbird offers the ultimate balance between playability and comfort. The orchestra shape has also been seen in the hands of the legendary Eric Clapton, and as you know, it doesn't shy away from heavier strumming and more alternative techniques too. A responsive, punchy sonic nature with sparkling highs and a renowned Tanglewood feel - you won't be disappointed.
