Lowden O50 built with Mastergrade African Blackwood and Alpine Spruce with a Mahogany neck. Big, impressive tone, sustain, playability and of course the immaculate Lowden workmanship.
This Lowden O50 is a tone machine pus sang and a fingerstyle player’s dream. Build with beautiful African Blackwood and mastergrade Italian Alpine Spruce this 50 series Lowden is one of the best out there. The AAAAA Italian Alpine Spruce comes from very slow growing old trees and produces a very warm and clear sound. Combined with African Blackwood one get a wonderful articulation and crystal clear defined notes with massive sustain and those fabulous overtones that only Italian Alpine Spruce produces. Check out George’s story on Alpine Spruce HERE.
The O-size body was developed by George in the mid-seventies. With a larger lower bout and a traditional size upper bout the bass response is impressive while the mid and high notes are still loud and clear delivering a very balanced guitar with excellent note separation. This is an impressive Lowden amongst the Lowden guitars out there.
