Lowden / 'Batch 45' F38 Brazilian Rosewood Sitka Spruce / Guitar

Lowden has released a limited series in honor of the 45th anniversary of the 38 model, including this F38. This 'Batch 45' guitar is a tribute to the original 38, the first prototype of the 38 model being designed by George Lowden in 1976. This model was finally put into production in 1977 after a very enthusiastic reception. The current collection consists of three different models, each using a different combination of woods, as well as sharing the traditional features of the 38 series. Only 45 copies of the 'Batch 45' are available worldwide through 15 selected dealers, and this F38 is number 13 in this series. The Lowden F38 features a Sitka Spruce top and Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. The guitar also features 38-style features including an ebony fingerboard with beautiful Leaf Style inlays, abalone top inlays, rosewood headstock overlay and maple binding. To emphasize the special character of this Lowden F38, the guitar has a label signed by George Lowden. The guitar will be delivered with accompanying certificates in an Ameritage hardshell case.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.


We do speak English, Dutch and German! Feel free to call in any of these languages and ask your questions! Call 0031-523-232205




We LOVE Guitars, and buy and trade for most stringed instruments. But we also do consignment, make appraisals for insurance or put you on our watch list. Please check the Buying & Trading page for details.
