Lowden F35 Old Cuban Mahogany - Adirondack Limited #15 of 20 (SOLD)


Absolutely brilliant Lowden masterpiece! The most understated tone machine one has ever heard. Incredible!‘ Every part of wood used on this guitar was soaked in the magic Lowden tone universe. First the 'Log' neck. This was build from a raw log of flamed Honduran Mahogany that was personally selected by George. The kind of Mahogany used 40 years ago. Then the bakc and sides. They came from over 100 years old Cuban Mahogany. Cuban Mahogany (Swietenia Mahogani), one of the most rare species used in guitar building today. Cuban Mahogany is no longer commercially available. Very small quantities are occasionally made available, which tend to be expensive. Cuban Mahogany is denser and finer textured than the more widely used Mahogany species and has exceptional stability, subtle beauty and makes the greatest sounding guitars with a wonderful tonal complexity that is unusually lush for a mahogany guitar. Finally the Adirondack Red Spruce top. This wood needs no introduction except the addition that on this 7 year old guitar this wood now sounds completely opened up. The combination of these very fine tonewoods in the hands of the Lowden craftsman gave birth to an incredibly responsive intrument that handles both fingerstyle playing and a flatpick extremely well. And - of course - she sounds especially at home in DADGAD.tuning!

This is number 15 from the original numbered run of 20 guitars that George Lowden built. The condition of this guitar is excellent with essentially no fret wear and no dings/scratches or cracks. This is a truly special guitar. An outstanding instrument, gorgeously understated beauty and gorgeous to listen to. Delicate, articulate, defined and dynamic. Lowden at its best!
