    Look at and listen to this amazing Lowden F50 model, built from master grade African Blackwood combined with master grade Adirondack Red Spruce!

    African Blackwood is an outstanding tonewood. It is has long been recognized by classical guitar builders as the “holy grail” of tonewoods. With a strong responsive tap tone that surpasses even Brazilian Rosewood, it contributes great volume, power and brilliance to this phenomenal guitar. Because of its structural stability it provides an incredibly strong basis for the any top and provides clarity and sustain. George started using this powerful wood about two years ago and the combination with any top is superb.

    Combine this wood with Adirondack and you get chrystal clear notes all over the fretboard with a superb sustain. Very well balanced, loud and responsive. For more than a century Adirondack Red Spruce has been the tonewood of choice in high quality guitars. The wood grows slow which makes it lightweight and stiff. Nowadays finding master grade quality sets is a challange. But not for George. He has been sourcing this wood for over 40 years now and knows where to get the best! The tap tone is full which makes it ideal for expressive player. This wood will answer any challenge. A true tone machine!!
