Handmade by George Lowden in Ireland this F-35 is all that a Lowden should be. Crisp, bell like trebles, a strong mid-range and a wonderfully balanced base. Spruce top, East Indian rosewood back and sides, ebony fingerboard, bindings in walnut and maple, beautiful mother of pearl soundhole inlay, gold Gotoh tuners. The guitar also has an EMG peizo installed. The guitar is in spectacular condition with a tiny dimple on the lower bout (see photo) and some play wear by the pickguard (see photo). The 12000 series serial number marks this guitar's manufacturing date in 2001 so the instrument has already entered into that "open" state that musicians crave. A powerful presence without being overwhelming the guitar is perfectly suited for either finger picking of the use of a pick. With headroom a plenty it is almost impossible to overdrive this guitar. The price is $3400 plus shipping with its original Hiscox case. Payment accepted via Paypal, check or money order. Checks must clear prior to shipping. Shipping costs will be computed by the method desired by the buyer and will be the exact cost, no handling fees. Please contact me with any questions or requests for additional photography.
