We have met George Lowden about forty years ago and feel privileged to have become his friends and his oldest retailer still in activity. Established in the Belfast area, in Northern Ireland, George has in the mid seventies revolutionized the folk fingerstyle guitar by launching a steel-strings design whith projection and dynamices usually featured on a top professional classical concert instrument, with incredible sustain and volume as a bonus track! Right at the opposite of compressed American siblings of that era that performed at their best when heavily flatpicked. Lowden has immediately gathered up talented followers and continues ever since. The all natural global woody aspect, the wood bindings instead of plastic, the satin finsish, the twin saddle bridge were inovative features that have been copied many a time without capturing the magical sound of the original design.
This F35 is an absolute Lowden masterpiece. It is equipped with a carefully chosen selection of unique components that will make it stand out beautifully. The woods were personally hand selected by George, and he also decided on the specs.
With subtle aesthetic details and unique styling, this 70th Anniversary Edition guitar was designed for the true brand's fans. Its Sinker Redwood top (Sequoia Sempervirens, yes, yes) and ebony body (from Diospyros Celabica!) provide a warm and sleek sound. The fabulous wood combination of this marvel is very forgiving, as the red cedar top has a natural compression, which is a real treat for the fingers and the ears.
It comes with official provenance documentation, an internal label personally signed by George, a decorative inlay on the LXX fingerboard, and a Soundbox Bevel.
