View Full Version : New Tanglewood concerns

Hi all,
First time poster, long time reader lol

After some advice really. Just upgraded from a Makala Dolphin to a Tanglewood Tu1 and I've got a few worries.
Firstly, the action seems really really low and the A string is buzzing when playing an open string. Secondly, the frets seem really sharp on the edges. Is this normal? Dont want to return to shop to be mocked by a 19 year old know it all!

The A string should not be buzzing open. Sharp fret edges can be a poor finish job on the frets and it can indicate a lack of humidity.

Both issues are valid concerns yet unfortunately normal these days.

Thanks guys. Took it back to the shop who replaced it with no fuss. Didn't have any TU1's so upgraded to the TU3 concert size for free. No buzzes or issues at all with this one so am well happy!
