    Our price:

    Gorgeous sound, classic understated Lowden looks! This is a top of the line F35…built with wonderful Honduras Rosewood and Alpine Spruce. Honduran Rosewood compares well to Brazilian Rosewood.

    I was lucky to get one of the last 35 series that was build with this rare tonewood. It took George a long time to get the wood into his workshop and as of 2017 the wood is only offered in the 50-series. Many builders and players claim it is superior, producing a well-balanced sounding guitar with great projection and strong lows and highs. In fact, during the 50’s and 60’s the great Spanish luthiers considered Honduran Rosewood to be the only acceptable substitute to Brazilian Rosewood! I love the ever so slightly understated beauty and above all…their superb tonal definition and separation. This premium 35-series F model is for the serious player who can appreciate a whole new world of subtle tone colours and dynamic range. AAAA figured tonewoods used throughout, Abalone and wood rosette, hand mitred purfling joints on sides and back, wood (ebony/maple) bound ebony fingerboard, the superb Gotoh 510 series gold/ebony machineheads for extremely accurate tuning.

    She has deep bases, a fat and rich high and beautiful open midrange. Chords and complex tunes flow clearly and detailed. This is the perfect guitar for the flat- and fingerpicker looking wanting to hear all the details of the righthand play. Open tunings, fingerstyle, a Lowden will follow you wherever you musically go.
