This is a georgeous Lowden S35M made with 100% Honduran “Fiddleback” Mahogany. The S35M is light weight, very articulate and perfect for both blues and bluegrass!
George has been reluctant for a very long time to build a guitar with a ‘hardwood’ soundboard simply because of the stiffness and density of most hardwoods. Hardwood soundboards wouldn’t vibrate freely nor would the give a warm response. Then came along this fiddleback Mahogany from Honduras which seemed to have quite a mild easy grain structure. This unique Central American Mahogany is very warm and responsive. There is none of the hardness you might expect and of course because of that, the voicing of the internal struts is easier as well. Beautiful looking and beautifully responsive!”
Also new for Lowden are the hand made Robson tuners. These magnificent tuners are hand made in Northern Ireland: attention to detail and fine craftsmanship make these tuners a pleasure to use.
