Lowden O 50 African Blackwood - adirondack Spruce - new
Brand new Lowden O-50x Custom guitar. A spectacular example of a custom 0-50 with Master Grade African Blackwood back and sides. African blackwood is strikingly different from other rosewoods in that it is flat black in color, and among the densest woods that can be found on the planet, it is also one of the most expensive. The trees grow in isolated areas of the West African deserts and the trunks of these trees are twisted and small, yielding very little guitar-sized wood. For those daring luthiers who don't mind dulling their chisels on this hardest of guitar woods, African blackwood can contribute to a rare and valuable guitar with outstanding volume and power, given that the top is voiced appropriately. Luckily this is the case with the Master Grade Adirondack spruce top, which is exactly the kind of wood that can handle the power of the African Blackwood. The guitar has spectacular volume and depth, a very evenly balanced mid section and a powerfull and sparkling and open high end. Other features include a 5-piece mahogany/rosewood neck, ebony fingerboard bound with maple, maple/abalone soundhole ring, highly figured maple bindings, rosewood/maple/mahogany purflings, 650mm scale length, 44.75mm nut width, 57mm strings spacing and gold Gotoh 510 tuners. Comes with Hiscox case, certificates and a lifetime warranty.
