F-35 Sinker Redwood Top with Guatamalen Rosewood Back & Sides (Handselected)
We were able to hand select this piece from our friends at Lowden and to be able to do that is a rare feat indeed as these beautiful instruments come from Northern Ireland. This instrument is built from the finest tone woods available. The top is a top grade sinker redwood and the back and sides are built from Guatamalen Rosewood. The 5 piece neck is gorgeous and a tonal poster as well. The tone that the masters at Lowden come up with always wows us and this is no exception at all. There is an immediate richness to the tone when striking a simple D chord. In fact we feel that this guitar calls to be played with a dropped D and the overtones create a frenzy when they are allowed to ring and spread. 
The combination of tone woods here create a beautifully balanced tonal spectrum as well. The mid range is not lost at all here as the highs and lows of Lowdens are always powerful. We played this guitar first with a pick and were thrilled at the power that could come forth. We then switched gears to finger style and were amazed at how rich the guitar was and how little effort we had to put in to get the top to move. 
The ergonomics of the soundbox bevel are outstanding as well. This is a shockingly comfortable guitar to play and there is zero fatigue from extended periods of play thanks to this functional piece of art and engineering.
