Introducing the Lowden Original Series F-20 Acoustic Guitar, a true masterpiece in craftsmanship and sound. This guitar is the pinnacle of excellence, meticulously designed and handcrafted to meet the highest standards of quality. When you hold the F-20 in your hands, you'll instantly feel the difference - the weight, the balance, and the sheer beauty of its construction.

The Original Series from Lowden represents the essence of their legacy. With its understated aesthetic appointments, including a seven-piece wood rosette, single piece binding, and three-piece purfling on the top, this guitar exudes timeless elegance. It pays homage to Lowden's rich heritage as the very first range introduced in 1976. George Lowden's original body design, the O model, forms the foundation of this iconic series.

Now, let's talk about the F-20's exceptional features. The F shape, first designed in 1982 and later refined in 2003, is perfect for flatpickers seeking incredible projection and midrange response. This soundbox geometry, combined with the carefully voiced bracing, creates a harmonious balance that neither favours treble nor bass. Whether you're a flatpicker, a fingerstyle enthusiast, or a blues guitarist, the F-20 adapts effortlessly to your playing style.

The choice of materials for the F-20 is a testament to Lowden's commitment to innovation. The back and sides are crafted from luxurious mahogany, known for its warm and rich tonal characteristics. Recently introduced to the Original Series, the Sitka spruce soundboard enhances the guitar's overall projection and responsiveness, resulting in a truly dynamic and expressive instrument.

When it comes to playability, the F-20 exceeds all expectations. The 5-piece mahogany and rosewood neck offers exceptional stability and resonant properties, ensuring optimal transfer of energy from your fingertips to the soundboard. The ebony fingerboard provides a smooth and comfortable playing surface, allowing you to explore every nuance of your music effortlessly.

With its renowned GL standard neck profile, the F-20 offers a comfortable playing experience for players of all levels. The nut width of 45mm expands to 57mm at the 14th fret, providing ample room for intricate fingerstyle techniques or rapid flatpicking runs. This guitar is a true extension of your musical expression, empowering you to reach new heights of creativity.

The attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the F-20. Maple binding and Rocklite-Mahogany-Maple purflings accentuate the guitar's refined aesthetics, while the gold Gotoh 381 tuners with ebony buttons not only ensure precise tuning but also add a touch of elegance.

To complete the package, the F-20 comes equipped with Lowden Light Gauge 12-53 strings, perfectly balanced to bring out the guitar's full potential. These strings provide a rich and articulate tone, further enhancing the overall sonic experience.

In summary, the Lowden Original Series F-20 Acoustic Guitar is a testament to Lowden's unwavering commitment to excellence. From its rich heritage to its impeccable craftsmanship, this guitar embodies the essence of what makes Lowden instruments truly exceptional. Experience the transformative power of the F-20 and unlock a world of musical possibilities like never before.
