Lowden / F-50C / 2013 / Guitar For Sale
Lowden F-50C armrest Bevel, Redwood-Honduras Rosewood, PU, COA, OHC This Mastergrade F50C series with Armrest Bevel arrived today at our shop, now, every 50 series is special, but on this one we can sort of copy-past the last description of the F50C-RW/HR, and extra special is not an understatement. Mindnumbing tone, awesome and one of a kind looks. Custom options include a Bevel Armrest in Tasmanian blackwood, highlander pickup, cutaway and measurements that are just a bit better compared to standard for fingerstyle players, like the 58mm (2 9/32") fingerspacing at the bridge matched to a 45.1mm ( 1 3/4") nut width. Both the Honduras Rosewood and Redwood are selected Mastergrade (AAAAA) meaning they are selected on both looks and tone. We asked for the darkest possible Redwood. The bookmatched Honduras rosewood is of Mastergrade AAAAA (style 50) quality that is rare to find, and considered one of the closest woods in tonal response to Brazilian rosewood, Combine that wood with ancient Redwood (of AAAAA mastergrade quality) and heaven breaks open. The hardly found Mastergrade Redwood is one of those scarce and unknown tonewoods that combine Stunning looks with a unique tone i personally find the perfect mix of Cedar warmth and Adirondack 'bark'. Officially known as "Sequia Semperviren Americana" the Redwood tree is known to be the largest tree found worldwide, only found in California. Many people know it from Cars driving through a Tunnel made in on of this Ancient Californian Trees. This tree can get very old, and George his wood comes from Natural fallen trees or old logs, that very likely sprung from seed somewhere in the 1400's or 1500's.(imagine that!) A nice thought is that this historical piece of wood is almost symbolic for modern American history, from the times Indians were the only native people in California, up till the moment it is used by one of the best guitarmakers in the world! You will have a hard time finding a more beautiful, rare and fabulous Lowden F style than this one, and yes you will have a hard time putting it down once you picked it up. It's powerful with great balance, subtle clarity, sweetness and warmth, all covered in a juice of impressive dynamics creating a true mastergrade experience. And then the bevel, well that's modern feature, very hard to sculpture, is pure comfort and i'm sure any guitarplayer can imagine why. The Highlander pickup provides the best tone quality coming from a piezo style pickup. It's only used and installed by specialists but considered one of the best pickups availaible and George Lowden favours it for decades. Includes COA and Original Lowden Hiscox Case.
