Description

Wanted: 2016 Lowden 050c seeking serious companion for music-making fun. Will lend a woody, balanced voice in exchange for room and board in a 45% humidity home. Can’t cook, but will provide musical inspiration 24/7/365. If interested, please send an email to [email protected].


Here the Lowden guitar company has paired some Ancient Cuban Mahogany with Sitka Spruce in a big frame that lends itself to a flatpick, but is balanced enough to hold up handsomely for fingerstyle. Like new, this 2016 050c comes outfitted with a Venetian Cutaway, Maple Arm Bevel, and Abalone rosette for a little flair to this otherwise understated package. Comes wrapped up in a Hiscox Liteflite Artist case. All the projection that comes from a big body, but none of the boominess that garbles up lesser guitars; the Mahogany and Sitka blend together for a woody crunch that’s easy on the ears and spread out evenly across the fretboard.

I like the balance across the strings, and how easily you can get the bass to bark. The trebles have a hint of overtones, just enough to fill out the voice without muddying the waters.
 
Great Fingerstyle instrument with clear and articulate bass, mid and high frequencies. Great for alternate tuning as well.
