Description

What a beauty. We love African Blackwood, it’s one of the best contenders with Brazilian Rosewood for king of the tonewoods, and here paired with Adirondack Spruce in Lowden’s F-50c body the result is a powerful voice that’s dynamic, colorful, and expressive. We’ve got a lovely example here from 2015 that’s already opened up handsomely, and plays so smoothly. Figured Koa bindings incorporate a Ryan-style arm bevel plus venetian cutaway, and the 5-ply Mahogany-Rosewood-Mahogany neck is carved in the GL Standard profile; just the right amount of heft for the left hand to connect with. This F-50c weighs in under five pounds and feels solid on the leg. Lowden’s team balanced the neck and body here for an easy playing experience, made apparent with the slick setup and satin finish. Please note, this Lowden now has a K&K Trinity pickup installed (photos were taken before the install, so show an empty endpin slot).

George Lowden created his beautiful F body shape years ago, and it is still a force to be reckon with. A perfect midsize shape with a bit more bass and beautiful crisp trebles. African Blackwood back and sides gives this one a bit more low-mid range which I really love.
