    Our price:

    This Lowden O50x Bushmills Black Bush Limited Edition in the classic Lowden O-size is a dream. Impressive tone, sustain, playability and of course the imaculate Lowden workmanship.

    The O50x Bushmills Black Bush is the second guitar series to be born out of a collaboration between two iconic Northern Irish brands who share a passion for quality craftsmanship.  The Lowden O50x Bushmills Black Bush features Copper inlays from the 10 traditional copper pots stills used to triple distil Bushmills Irish single malt and barrel wood that has been used to mature whiskey for hundreds of years at the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, The Old Bushmills Distillery. The barrel wood has been complemented by some of the best tone woods in the guitar world – African Blackwood and Alpine Spruce. Check out an impression of the production proces HERE.

    African Blackwood is one of the most beautiful tone woods out there, and the hand selected mastergrade pieces George Lowden uses for the 50 series are the best of the best. The AAAAA Alpine Spruce comes from very slow growing old trees and produces a very warm and clear sound. Combined with African Blackwood one get a very warm, clear tone with loads of sustain and angelic overtones. Beautiful! She comes in a gloss lacquer outfit with the pickguard in the case.

    And of course this one has all the goodies including the Lowden branded bottle of delicious and smooth BUSHMILLS BLACK BUSH. This Irish whiskey blend combines a high amount of malt whiskey matured in former Oloroso sherry casks.
