Lowden S32

Sitka Spruce Top
East Indian Rosewood Back & Sides
Maple Binding
Wood & Abalone Rosette

Lowden S32, in showroom-mint condition. Wonderful guitar, very powerful for it's size, with the very distinct Lowden tone. The top is stellar Sitka Spruce, while the back and sides are of Indian Rosewood - a beautifully grained set with a rich, dark color. A wood and Abalone rosette adds a gorgeous accent to the already striking instrument top, and the beautifully designed pinless bridge is fitted with a split/compensated saddle. The body is bound with Maple, and the neck is a five-piece laminate that looks fantastic. The tone is quite unique, as you'll know if you've played a Lowden in person - woody and delicate, but with a lot of power for such a small body. And Lowden's craftsmanship and attention to detail are readily apparent, too. If you've been looking for a Lowden to cherish, you will not be disappointed with this instrument, which is in showroom-new condition, and comes in the original Hiscox lite-flight case with paperwork.

Lowden's comments on the S series...

"The S Series features a small compact body, more akin to that of a classical guitar, with our standard Lowden neck. The soundbox profile and voicing of the S series guitars have been designed to accentuate the bass response and remove the naturally over bearing upper middle frequencies associated with a concert sized guitar. This has resulted in an unusually 'big' sound for a small guitar with powerful trebles beautifully balanced by a compact but warm bass register; an instrument with truly amazing projection. This series will appeal to anyone wanting an extremely vibrant guitar in a small body size."

This instrument came straight to me from dealer stock (NOS), and is in mint condition. It was factory-fitted with a clear pickguard. As stated above, includes Hiscox "LiteFlight" molded hardshell case, and original paperwork.
