Description

There are Lowdens, and then there are Lowdens. This 1996 F23 we have in the shop is the latter: bold, bright tone, lightweight construction, heavy duty projection. Part of George Lowden's Original Series, this F23 has more punch and focus than its O23 counterparts, but all their depth. As a result, the F23 is very responsive, with a hearty, dry tone that is electric for flatpicks and balanced for fingerstyle arrangements. With great string-to-string articulation, combined with the Claro Walnut's dryness, this guitar can cut through the mix and works wonderfully for the solo guitarist seeking an instrument which can project all that articulation cleanly and expressively. Complete with the original Hiscox hardshell case (adorned with white bars and "fragile" images), this F23 is ready for years and years of great music.

Lowden's pulled off a great Walnut guitar with this F23. Naturally, they were able to manifest their trademark brightness and articulation with Claro Walnut's dry response.
 
With precise highs and cutting mids, this guitar is perfect for fingerstyle or recording in an ensemble.
