New Acoustic Guitar

For a long time I’ve been longing for a really good electro-acoustic guitar to play on stage for solo gigs as well as with Tri & Big G. (This isn’t that guitar, by the way!) My current acoustic (a Martin copy by Marlin) is over 30 years old and I don’t want to risk it getting damaged in various pubs and so on. I had a very very minor windfall recently and saw this Tanglewood TW1500 for sale very close to me and for what seemed like a very good price. I had intended to buy it myself, but my good friend Phil Graham changed our arrangement and paid for the guitar for me, as a belated birthday present. Many thanks, Phil, I am truly not worthy.

The guitar is about 12 years old, doesn’t have a pickup fitted, but is well played in and the cutaway gives nice access to the “dusty” end. I need the action lowering a little, and I’ve just sourced a Barcus Berry soundhole pickup from ebay, then I’ll be using it for most gigs that I play. I’ll probably add some brass bridge pins too.
