This used 2013 Lowden Guitars S35 in AAAA Ancient Cuban Mahogany with an Adirondack Spruce top, K&K Pure Mini Pick-up, and an upgraded Ivory Hiscox Artist flight case (not Lowden branded). This great little guitar is just starting to open up! There are a few minor marks on the front of the guitar (too small to photograph properly) and two on the neck. This guitar has been set-up for Light-Medium strings.
Cuban Mahogany is regarded as the very best Mahogany available - and George Lowden was very fortunate to be able to find a small stash of boards imported into the UK about 100 years ago! The boards were so old that one side was often almost black before being cleaned up. Tonally, Cuban Mahogany gives a lot of projection and clarity, and is more dense and harder than other types of Mahogany. Adirondack Spruce seems to have a little more clarity than Sitka, combined with a certain depth of tone which is hard to describe in words: you can really dig in to Adirondack!
The Lowden S body is a small-body guitar, about the size of a 00. It is arguably the loudest Lowden, noted for its clarity and definition with a very focused projection.
