The best selling of all Tanglewood guitars, the TW45 represents the pinacle of quality, playability and affordability.
A beautiful guitar! plays lovely, sounds lovely, looks lovely! :)
A very nice guitar indeed. What really brought out its best was re-stringing with elixir nanoweb P-bronze strings (light gauge), and then adjusting the truss-rod to get a nice low action. (Action is good as-bought, but needed adjusting on re-stringing.) I play it as an acoustic, finger-style: it's just excellent, a far better guitar than I am a player! If, like I was, you're dithering about what move up to for a "beyond basics" guitar, and acoustic is your thing... look no further.
