Fine Lowden F22 Mahogany – Red Cedar from the Original Series. She delivers clear and crisp tones, very well-balanced and fantastic volume and sustain. And on top of that: excellent craftsmanship!
The Lowden F22 is George Lowden’s highly regarded Original series mid-size model. He developed the F-model 35 years ago, and it was an instant classic. The guitar is equipped with a comfortable 45 mm neck and easy playability on the comfortable low action neck. George and his team really know how to build great guitars.
This guitar is just beautifully built and she sounds incredible. The combination of Red Cedar with Mahogany offers a wonderful experience with its warmth, dynamics and sensitivity. The note separation is awesome. This is also an instrument that responds exceptionally well to what you put into it. Very responsive and warm clear notes come out of the comfortable body. De-tuning to various alternate tuning feels very stable and will produce a remarkably piano like sound with some chords. Superb for finger style but takes a flat pick wonderfully as well. Really sings in various open tuning’s. Also, the level of quality has never disappointed. Listen to a sound impression here:
