Considered by many to be the absolute pinnacle of acoustic guitar production, Lowden just keep knocking out models that simply take our breath away. The Winter 2018 Limited Edition collection is a run of 25 Tiger Myrtle guitars, the result of a 10 year search for the best of this incredibly rare wood.
Lowden are known for their subtle use of majestic tone woods and timeless design and this is demonstrated perfectly in the S-50. With a truly beautiful Tiger Myrtle back and sides, this guitar not only looks incredible, it sounds it too. With a Sitka Spruce top it is crisp, clear and well balanced. Sitka offers a strong attack and strong projection which combines perfectly with the warm, low end that the Tiger Myrtle brings. This particular guitar features a 38 style soundboard inlay for a real premium vibe.
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 Mahogany/Rosewood neck offers a familiar yet delicious neck combination, while the Maple and ancient Bog Oak head facings offer a slightly more exotic flavour. Every element of this guitar has been developed with the highest level of care and attention to detail, the result is simply stunning.
It's a premium guitar in every sense of the word, unrivalled tonal quality and construction from Lowden.
