Our Super Folk cutaway Exotic Ebony model is finished in a luxury satin oil to really bring out the striking grain patterns.
Ebony is often called the king of woods and is featured in many musical instruments, from high end pianos to clarinets, but here in this instrument, we believe it finds a special place all of its own.
We use Ebony timber for the whole construction, top, back and sides, and brace each model carefully with hand selected spruce timber to achieve the rich, resonant sound you’d expect from such a luxurious timber.
Our onboard EX4 EQ system will make the guitar supremely capable in both stage & studio applications and we believe if you’re a player who wants an instrument made from a legendary timber, to pass down through the generations, the Discovery Exotic Ebony model is the one for you.

Tanglewood recognise that to introduce people to music an instrument must have a high build quality, good playability, attractive cosmetics and as many features as possible to encourage and reward aspiring musicians.
Using this design brief, Tanglewood luthiers created the Discovery Exotic series, a whole range of genuine musical instruments which feature 4 band EQ systems with stage backlighting, delicate 2mm fingerboard dots, black soft touch machine head buttons and understated sound hole rosettes. All these features are aimed at bringing the specification of a much more expensive instrument into the entry level market.
