This mint 2017 Lowden S50 Fan Fret may be the ultimate Lowden guitar! We wanted to create a smaller-body Lowden that was comfortable to hold and play, but wasn't lacking in any bass or depth of tone - so we added a Fan Fret and a Soundbox Bevel! Purchased from Bluedog in July, the owner added a K&K Double Helix pick-up (which sounds AMAZING!!) and had this guitar for less than two months before realizing he was too worried to tour with this special guitar.
We've used George Lowden's favourite wood combination: Master Grade African Blackwood and Sinker Redwood, with Tasmanian Blackwood for the bevel and binding.
This is an exceptional guitar that exemplifies all that is possible in modern lutherie today.
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.
