  • Product Description

    Brand new Lowden Pierre Bensusan signature with an Adirondack soundboard and Honduras Rosewood back and sides. This guitar is a tremendous representation of the incredible workmanship of these instruments - the tone is articulate and deep, one that can fill a room with ease. The body wood is marked by beautiful figuring and makes for a very round and traditional sound - the highs are pleasantly vocal in nature and the bass does not get boomy or muddy. Additionally, this instrument has meticulously crafted bevels for a more ergonomic design and easier playability.

    What George says:

    "The first guitar I made for Pierre was back in 1978 and that 'old lady' battered and bruised but much loved and played still sings so beautifully today. Over the years since then Pierre and I have worked very closely together and he has made many recordings with that first Lowden guitar. Therefore, designing and building a new guitar for Pierre in 2009 was a project which I approached with special expectation and hope. Pierre asked me to include a soundbox "bevel" and I knew apart from the structural implications the most important thing would be to design and voice the new soundboard to make sure the bevel did not compromise tone in any way. To make sure the new guitar had plenty of brilliance and warmth at the same time, I chose Honduras rosewood and Adirondack spruce. I'm delighted how the guitar has turned out and of course it will only get better with age - and an awful lot of playing - and we can be sure Pierre will do just that!"
