Lowden S50 Mastergrade Koa/Koa (SOLD)

Category: 

While visiting George Lowden and his fine crew back in August I saw a stack of Mastergrade Koa that was really extraordinary in pattern. It was not yet assigned to a guitar so I grabbed the chanche and reserved this beautiful set to build a full Koa Lowden. All Koa Lowden models are extremely rare since George is very picky when choosing top woods. This top passed the tap-test and and here she is: the all Mastergrade Koa Lowden S50! Stunning!! In looks and tone.

Warm rich tones, fat mids and decent basses with creamy high notes as all the S-models deliver. A real beauty to behold. Strumming, flatpicking, fingerpicking or tapping. She does it all. The Lowden S model has a more compact body that is comfortable both sitting down and standing up. It provides perhaps a more intimate Lowden experience and has a slightly shorter scale length neck. Thus the string tension is slightly lower which allows for even more easier playing (vibrato). Due to its size it is an especially great instrument to play while sitting on the couch or playing for a longer time.
