Tanglewood say:-

We set out to build a very special line of guitars. Guitars for today’s guitarist. The brief was to produce a big, clear but well balanced sound, coupled with the best materials and the highest level of hand craftsmanship available in a large production facility.

It would have been a relatively simple task to “improve” upon our existing standard acoustic guitar designs, by increasing material budgets and increasing the amount of luthiers handcrafting on each instrument. But we felt then that the guitar would have been “MasterDesign” in name only.

We wanted these new instruments to have fresh highly innovative features. They had to have their own unique cosmetic style and character, an unparalled sound and most importantly they had to be a robust, reliable roadworthy musical tool.

Tanglewood contacted well established Scandinavian luthier and designer Michael Sanden. Michael and his small team have been building fine acoustics for over 30 years in idyllic Tommarp, a picturesque rural area of Sweden. Michael, having been a Master member of the Guild of American Luthiers since 1983, had quietly and prudently been building a reputation across Scandinavia as the foremost, and creatively innovative luthier of his generation. Building instruments for almost every musician in the region for over 25 years, he maintained his core design principles all those years and developed a loyal following of players who would happily sit on the Sanden Guitars waiting list until their personally built instrument was ready.

The beautiful unique constructive lines of the Sanden instruments set the general first impression. When most of us see a Sanden guitar, we recognise that due to the inevitable cost of ownership of a guitar hand built by Michael, and the small capacity of the Swedish workshop, Sanden guitars would always remain an aspirational purchase for the very privileged few.

So we asked Michael, would he consider a collaboration with Tanglewood Guitars, and help us to bring his elegant designs and craftsmanship to a larger market. We would make, in collaboration with his master luthier knowledge, a genuine Tanglewood MasterDesign range of instruments by Michael Sanden. Michael recognised the potential of a marriage between Tanglewood Guitars, the #1 brand of volume production guitars in the UK & Eire and his own boutique Sanden workshop. The economies of scale we could bring to the project, the unique structural and aesthetic features Michael could bring, we both felt would add to our individual brand image and create a collective production guitar masterpiece... we hope you agree.
