    This is a brilliant sounding Lowden O35x Custom with an extraordinary combination of tonewoods. Rare Ancient Cuban Mahogany taken from the 50-serie stash for back and sides and a beautiful Red Cedar top.

    I added a fingerboard with a curved end for that extra classy touch on the amazing sounding Lowden O35x. This is one good sounding guitar with a very distingguised sound. Full bodied, exquisite tone separation and beautfull sustain. Cuban Mahogany is very rare since it doesn’t grow in Cuba anymore. George uses wood that used to be part of furniture cabinets that were build in the 20th century

    Those who treasure Mahogany as a back and side wood (I do!) find more of what they are looking for in Cuban Mahogany. Unlike Khaya and Sapele, Cuban Mahogany (Swietenia mahagoni) is a close cousin to the Honduran Mahogany which is a staple in guitar making. Slightly more dense and less porous, this beautiful tonewood delivers fuller mids and more prounounced low end tones compared to the regular Mahogany species. And combined with the Red Cedar top it has a really warm sound.
