Lowden guitars are widely regarded as some of the finest acoustic guitars in the world. Revered for their exquisite craftmanship, premium tonewoods and impeccable attention to detail, Lowden have become a major force in the acoustic world. Founded in the 1970s by luthier George Lowden, each guitar is lovingly hand built in Northern Ireland using traditional techniques to keep the quality at the highest standards. Quite simply, Lowden represents the pinnacle of acoustic craftsmanship and each guitar is a true work of art!
The Lowden F-50 is without doubt, one of the finest acoustic guitars in Lowden's impressive catalogue. Featuring a stunning Master Grade African Blackwood back and sides and Sinker Redwood top, the F-50 is an acoustic player's dream! The F-50's exotic tonewood construction produces subtle tonal colours and a wide dynamic range. The African Blackwood body has a complex tonal quality that is almost three dimensional while the Sinker Redwood top provides a warm and mid focussed tone which beautifully complements the Blackwood back and sides. The F-50 boasts a beautifully carved soundbox bevel for maximum comfort and playability as well as a stunning figured wood and abalone rosette.
Lowden 50 Series
The 50 Series can be described as the Lowden Custom Shop. Bringing together premium master-grade tonewoods, exquisite craftsmanship and exceptional attention to detail, the 50 Series sits proudly at the top of Lowden's range.
“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!” - George Lowden
"F" Body Shape
Lowden's "F" shape is a medium sized body that sits in between the larger "O" and the smaller "S" shapes. It is a great all round body shape with a focussed projection making it ideal for both fingerpickers and strummers alike.
- "F" Body Shape - This medium sized body delivers a bold, full-bodied sound that is perfect for fingerpickers and strummers alike.
- Sinker Redwood/African Blackwood Construction - Produces a complex, almost three dimensional tone with a wide dynamic range.
- 5 Piece Neck - Multi piece necks are incredibly stable and are less susceptible to moving with changes in temperature and humidity.
- GL Standard Neck Profile - George Lowden's preferred neck profile! The GL Standard profile delivers exceptional playability and comfort whether you're playing big open chords or intricate melodies further up the neck.
- Matte Finish - Your hand will glide effortlessly up and down the neck and won't get sticky when playing it hot environments.
- Soundbox Bevel - A section of the body has been carved away making it more comfortable to play when your forearm is resting on it.
