A true holy grail guitar - arguably one of the greatest guitars available from one of the most acclaimed guitar builders of our era. This Lowden F-50C features impossibly rare and rightly revered Master Grade Brazilian Rosewood back-and-sides, with an immaculate Master Grade Adirondack spruce top - a combination famously used in the most sought-after pre-war Martin guitars. Brazilian Rosewood is known as 'the' tonewood, delivering three-dimensional, perfectly balanced and extraordinarily rich tones, with superb clarity, silky bell-like resonance and magical overtones. Paired with a dynamic and powerful Adirondack top, this guitar covers an extraordinary range of tones. It truly has to be heard to be believed.
Other classic Lowden features include their signature 5-piece Mahogany and Rosewood neck, highly figured Tasmanian Blackwood binding with Rosewood / Maple / Mahogany purfling, Gotoh 510 tuners, and the famous Lowden soundbox bevel for superb playing comfort.
The guitar plays wonderfully - the 650mm nut width is wonderfully comfortable, and the playing experience is effortless. It's fantastically responsive and dynamic, equally at home lightly fingerpicked or aggressively strummed. There's an enormous amount of headroom and tremendous volume. It's simply awe-inspiring to play.
This instrument has been incredibly well cared-for, as you'd expect with something of this calibre. There are a couple of barely perceptible impressions in the Adirondack top - not something that we'd even mention on most used guitars, but on a guitar of this quality, it's worth noting. The frets are as they were from the factory, the finish still retains the wonderful Lowden satin finish, and the pickguard shows only the lightest of polish swirls. The guitar includes all original paperwork, provenance and CITES paperwork, as well as the original Lowden-branded Ameritage case.
This could likely be the only Brazilian Rosewood F-50 in the country - we've certainly never come across another. This is a rare chance to purchase an investment-level, playable work of art that will take centre stage in any serious guitar collection.
