Lowden Pierre Bensusan Model



New Lowden Pierre Bensusan model! You can think of the Bensusan as an F, with a cutaway, made from Honduran Rosewood and Adirondack Spruce ... with a few very notable features. It's got a slightly wider than 1 3/4" nut width, and slightly longer than 25/5" SL, for enhanced fingerstyle playability and resonance in DADGAD. The ebony arm rest enhances playability further, and the figured Canadian Maple neck seems to impart some extra projection and clarity. A fabulous, rich-sounding guitar -- quite possibly the best fingerstyle instrument on the market. Priced with Ameritage hard case.
