Lowden S-50 Brazilian Rosewood & Sinker Redwood w/ Bevel


For a fingerstyle guitar player, it'd be hard to imagine finding a better-sounding guitar than this Lowden S-50. Different? Sure. But this instrument has it all: power, responsiveness, warmth, sparkle, sustain ... and that perfectly balanced voice that a great Brazilian Rosewood guitar seems to provide like nothing else does. The Redwood top tames some of the overtone content, while providing a warm, deep fundamental note. Despite not having a spruce top, this guitar has an incredibly vibrant & present sound -- a perfect choice if you want "warm" but you don't want to sacrifice the third dimension spruce usually brings to the table. The playability is simply incredible: the combination of its shorter scale and the arm bevel leave you wanting for nothing when holding it in your lap. Styled to the nines, this level-50 guitar is priced with a custom Ameritage case. Truly, one of the best sounding guitars we've had in the shop in some time.
