Description

Our 2016 Lowden S-50 comes with top-of-the-line Madagascar Rosewood and Sinker Redwood, and is trimmed in Tasmanian Blackwood with an arm bevel and Abalone fretboard inlays. This little gem has been kept in pristine condition, and features Lowden’s trademark satin finish so you’ll only blind the audience with your dazzling musicianship, not the glare from the lights.


The short 630mm scale makes for easy playability, and paired with the Sinker Redwood top makes for a smooth, warm response that fleshes out the bass and lower mids. Excellent sustain, especially considering this is a smaller guitar. It’s refreshing to find a guitar that plays so easily. This is one Lowden that’s hard to put down.

The small body S-50 from Lowden is an incredible fingerstyle guitar. So articulate and precise. Coupled here with Sinker Redwood, which is very stiff and beautifully striped, you get a warmth that doesn’t sacrifice power.
