Description


This 2017 Lowden S50 wears its six strings like pearls around your neck, and a rich voice to match. With silk-smooth response and svelte satin  finish to boot—here’s a small-bodied wonder fit for the opera. Accordingly, Lowden paired a dark set of African Blackwood with Adirondack Spruce and threw in an arm bevel for good measure, and the total effect is one of balance and easy clarity.



The ear candies of this S50 are best brought out under a fingerstylist’s touch, especially if you’re prone to dip your toe (or fingers, come to think of it) into altered tuning depths. The nut is a touch wider to accommodate left-hand fingerings, and that subtle arm bevel seals the deal for easy playability.



While technically preowned, you’d have to pick one up straight from Lowden’s shop to find a guitar in finer condition—this S50 is the Webster definition of “gorgeous."

Excellent clarity in the trebles, and the subtle arm bevel is sharp to the eyes but soft to the touch. This is the first African Blackwood Lowden I've played, and I'm impressed.
 
Such a beautiful guitar to play and to look at. The tone is balanced and dry as you would expect from a Lowden, but this one is unique.
