Lowden F-35 Redwood Top with flamed maple bindings and cocobolo back and sides
Fresh off the boat and into the shop. I must say rarely does a guitar truly take our breath away. This is a spectacular example of the craftsmanship and attention to detail that can only be found in a hand built guitar from Lowden.
The tone is truly exquisite on this instrument. There is a warmth that is plaid and punctuated, creating one of the more present guitars we have ever played. There is a quality akin to the human voice in this music box that allows a level of expression in the player not often found. The overtones are abundant so if you are one that fears a plethora of tonal colors this is not the instrument for you. This F-35 is truly a monster of tone shaping and we are thrilled that she has arrived on our shores to have the opportunity to share it with you!
BACK AND SIDES: COCOBOLO
BINDING: FIGURED MAPLE
