• Lowden F38 Brazilian Rosewood – Cedar (new)

    Our price:10.875,00

    George Lowden made his first F38 Brazilian Rosewood – Red Cedar model back in 1976 for his friend Alastair Burke. Traditionally, George doesn’t use much shell inlays in his guitars, but with this model he indulged a little.

    Outstanding Lowden F38 build with CITES certified mastergrade Brazilian Rosewood and Dark Cedar. She is a real eye-catcher, with beautifully figured Brazilian Rosewood and Abalone purfling and the delicate Abalone leaf inlays. This guitar is a cut above the norm in the aesthetic department for Lowden.

    The 38 Model is becoming increasingly difficult to get hold of, mostly down to the scarcity of high-quality Brazilian Rosewood. Combined with the sublime Dark Cedar top, she gives you that classic Lowden tone and leaves nothing to add. Well…except…a bevel! This masterfully crafted option lets you play for hours without a problem! Check out the YouTube vid where George Lowden talks about this amazing instrument and Colm McLean plays one similar to our wonderful F38. A soundsample of the actual guitar is here:
