Lowden Pierre Bensusan Signature Guatemalan (2017)

On Hold

Pre-owned Lowden Pierre Bensusan model just into the shop! 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" scale, 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. Although pre-owned, this guitar remains in mint condition. We sold it when it was new, and remember it as an exceptional-sounding example. Priced with Hiscox hard case.
