Lowden / F38 Brazilian Rosewood Cedar / 1991 / Guitar For Sale

This Lowden F38 is also known as 'The 38'. The 38 dates back to 1976 when George first made a 38 style guitar for Alastair Burke, which resulted in a flood of orders and exploding sales for George and his small team. These days he would probably have called it F50. But George decided to continue the F38 model. The 38 was Lowden's most exclusive guitar in the company's early years, with graceful abalone purflings, abalone and rosewood rosette, and beautiful 'Leaf' inlay. Or as George says: Normally I don’t use much shell inlays in my guitars but with this model I’ve indulged a little." The real eye-cather is however the Reclaimed Brazilian rosewood back and sides, which is paired with a dark cedar top. The back and sides have that beautiful dark to light color and a unique grain pattern and matches really well with the dark cedar top. The tone is wonderful and really intriguing with controlled and clear basses, a sweet midrange with presence and wonderful highs with that Celtic clarity. This F38 sustains really well and has beautiful overtones. In addition, it also looks very clean! Of course there are small playwear marks on the body and neck, and the top and back of the body have a small ding. However, for its age, it is in excellent condition!

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.
