An unbelievably rare early 1990's Lowden, the F-24 Series was part of George Lowden's Original Series of guitars, and features gorgeous Fiddleback Mahogany back-and-sides with a subtly-figured Sitka Spruce top and a thin oil finish. The F24 series was discontinued in 1999 after only a couple dozen examples were built. According to the factory, various factors contributed to the decision, including the fact that all of the maple specimens that the factory was receiving were of such quality that they should only be used on "35" style premier range instruments!
There are very few left-handed F-24's in existence, and to add to its rarity it is signed by George Lowden himself on the back of the headstock. It's all original, with the exception of a professionally-installed K&K Pure Mini passive pickup, and includes the original hardshell case.
It plays wonderfully, with a low, buzz-free action, and the sound is classic Lowden - bright, chimey and lyrical. It's had plenty of playtime over the years, and shows numerous small dings, playwear and pick marks, and the oil finish has given the guitar a stunning amber glow with plenty of honest patina. Structurally it's perfect, with no signs of needing a neck reset or regret anytime soon. A very cool and very rare guitar from a fantastic period in Lowden's history.
