What we say:
George Lowden has been building what we regard as some of the very best acoustic guitars in the world for over forty years now. From his early days in County Down, Ireland as a completely self-taught builder, George has built his reputation one instrument at a time, with no CNC machines to help along the way! His status today as a world class innovator and Master guitar builder is clear: there is a three year waiting list for his personally-built guitars! George and his small workshop team continue to deliver marvellous hand made guitars that conform to the highest possible standards whilst using original designs.
The F23 uses Lowden’s medium-sized body to appeal to a large cross-section of guitarists. Lowden themselves describe the sound as ‘punchy and focussed’ and that sounds fairly apt to us!
This beautiful acoustic is part of Lowden’s Original Series. It uses Walnut for the back & sides and Red Cedar for the top. This combination of voices brings plenty of mids to the table, allowing that strength to punch through. Cedar is a sweet and warm wood, perfect for adding colour to single notes and melodies.
This combination of woods gives a particularly different tone to, say, Spruce and Rosewood. Together with the smaller (yet relatively wide) body size, the F23 delivers a beautiful, soulful sound that blends precision, projection and cohesion. This model has a cutaway for reaching those higher frets.
This wonderful guitar is bound with Figured Sycamore and has an Ebony fingerboard. Gold Gotoh tuners complete the package.
