2021 Lowden F-50 Sinker Redwood & African Blackwood, Mint w/ Case & Tags


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2021 Lowden F-50 in like-new condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and hangtags. Handcrafted in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland, Lowden guitars are among some of the finest acoustic guitars crafted in any era. The 50 series is essentially Lowden’s custom shop, featuring Master Grade tonewoods and no-corners-cut design. The F shape is Lowden’s medium size, with a 15 7/8“ lower bout width.

Premium tonewoods include Master Grade African blackwood back and sides, Master Grade sinker redwood soundboard (X-braced), a five-piece mahogany/rosewood neck, and an ebony fingerboard. This guitar is exceedingly sweet and smooth-sounding, and African Blackwood has notable density, yielding a deep bass register and a higher volume ceiling than other rosewoods. String to string definition is exquisite, and trebles are extremely well-defined. Projection is ample, and the complex, layered quality of the sound blooms as notes sustain.
The ebony fingerboard provides additional glassy articulation, and the redwood soundboard has cedar-esque warmth with great natural compression. Weighing 5lbs 2oz, this Lowden F-50 has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 12-53 bronze strings and easy-playing action.
