Here’s a Lowden F-50 in some very dramatic cocobolo with a sinker redwood top. The 50 series is the finest instrument George Lowden builds, with the best master grade woods he can find from both a tonal and a visual perspective. A striking and highly figured set of cocobolo, with sapwood on the sides, cutaway, and a sinker redwood top. Surprisingly light for a cocobolo build, this guitar is very resonant and sounds every bit as good as it looks, which is saying something.
As George himself 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!”
The F is the mid sized Lowden, with the characteristic overtones, brilliant highs and endless sustain. A masterpiece. Lifetime warranty and a Hiscox case.
