Brand new Lowden F-50 with an African Blackwood body (back, sides) and a rare Figured Redwood top. This guitar is a perfect representation of the incredible workmanship of these instruments - the tone is articulate and deep, with a grand piano-like resonance and sustain. The tone woods feature gorgeous figuring and make for a very articulate sound, with excellent note separation and clarity. The highs are pleasantly vocal in nature and the bass does not get boomy or muddy. Right out of the box we were taken aback by the play feel, tone, and aesthetic of these guitars.
This very special build features several custom appointments and was featured at the NAMM show.
What George says:
"When we receive our tone-woods into our workshops we re-grade them several times and only the rarest and exceptional pieces we reserve for our 50 series. Every 50 series guitar benefits visually and in tone from this very special wood. These are simply the very best we can make!"
