Tanglewood JZ-503-BL

The Tanglewood company has a name for making excellent instruments at budget prices, and the JZ-503-BL is the latest in a long line of deep bodied jazz guitars that offer excellent tone and playability. The JZ range is essentially an upgraded model of the original AS-36, and comes with a more powerful set of humbucking pick ups and branded Grover machine heads. It certainly has all the jazz style, with a single “Venetian” cutaway and flamed maple top, back and sides. The 85/90mm deep all laminate body resonates well, and there is a fully adjustable brass bridge on a rosewood base. Electrically, it’s good to see a three way toggle switch that doesn’t wiggle and wobble, and the side jack that comes complete with a gold end pin. Coming in Tobacco Sunburst and Blue, the TS is also made as a left hander.
