    About this Lowden F35c Alex de Grassi Signature master guitarist Alex says: ‘One of the things I like about the signature models is that they project beautifully.” “It really goes out into the room, and it’s exceptionally well-balanced. “There’s also something about Maple that’s like a clean slate, where I can add color in, or back off and a get a more neutral sound.” Alex demonstrates his signature model’s sound in this video by playing sections of his composition “Blue Trout. Check out his story of the Signature HERE:

    Alex began playing guitars by the Northern Irish company in the 1980s, and his signature model was conceived when Alex visited the Lowden shop prior to performing at the Belfast International Arts Festival several years ago. “I played every guitar they had in the shop,” Alex says. “The last guitar they brought me was a maple F model, and after playing it for about 30 seconds, I said, ‘That’s it; I want a Maple guitar!’ That evening, I played probably half the concert on this F maple that they had, along with my older Lowden, and everybody came up after the show, saying, ‘That maple guitar sounded incredible!’”

    George Lowden suggested creating an Alex de Grassi signature model based on the mid-size Maple F-model that Alex had played. The guitar has highly quilted Maple back and sides and a Sitka spruce top, along with Lowden’s five-piece neck, which has a 46-mm.-wide nut (slightly wider nut than Lowden’s standard nut width), jumbo frets, and a flatter fingerboard radius. “It makes it a lot easier to do the intricate left-hand work I like to do,”

    Her condition is amazing and thus definitely excellent. Some very small dings on the binding, well played but well taken care off. Frets were professionally replaced 4 years ago and show only very light signs of use. Low action combined with the classic Lowden C-shape neck make her play like butter! She delivers a full, rich sound: warm, tight, lots of overtones and great tap tone. Check out the sound sample on our YouTube channel HERE
