Description

Take up this 2016 Lowden S-50, and get ready to lose track of time. The S body features a slim, 14 3/4” lower bout for a warm and focused tone, which is further enhanced by African Blackwood back and sides (one of our favorite tonewoods) and Sinker Redwood (reclaimed from the Mendocino Valley in our own California) on top, both master grade. The GL Standard neck profile is one of our favorite setups for fingerstyle, where this S-50 really likes to live. This one draws you in; there’s a glassy quality to the trebles that’s particularly haunting, and fills out the voice.

This wood combination is awesome. Rich low midrange, smooth attack ,and we have its twin in the larger F body if you would like a matching pair.
