Considered by many to be the absolute pinnacle of acoustic guitar production, Lowden just keep knocking out models that simply take our breath away. Pierre Bensusan is a player whose incredible virtuoso style crosses genres such as Celtic, World, Jazz and Folk. A pioneer of DADGAD tuning, Bensusan relies heavily on the use of delays and volume pedals to create atmosphere; he is a special kind of player that requires a special kind of guitar. The Lowden Pierre Bensusan signature certainly is a special guitar.
Lowden are known for their subtle use of majestic tone woods and timeless design and this is demonstrated perfectly in the Bensusan Signature. With a truly beautiful Honduran Rosewood back and sides, this guitar not only looks incredible, it sounds it too. With an Adirondack top it is crisp, clear and well balanced.
With a rich piano like response and unbelievable clarity it's equally at home as a finger style guitar or strumming big chords. A 5 piece Maple fingerstyle neck with Ebony fingerboard offer a familiar yet delicious neck combination. Every element of this guitar has been developed with the highest level of care and attention to detail, the result is simply stunning.
This is a real work of art, built with passion and precision, it is the perfect partner for a player as versatile and enigmatic as Pierre Bensusan.
