Introducing the Lowden F-21C from the renowned Original Series by Lowden Guitars, a masterpiece of acoustic excellence. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this guitar embodies the essence of quality and innovation. The Original Series, Lowden's inaugural range since 1976, remains a testament to the brand's unwavering commitment to uncompromising craftsmanship.

Designed for discerning musicians who demand superior performance, the F-21C showcases the iconic F shape, which was first introduced in 1982 and further refined in 2003. Its smaller soundbox generates remarkable projection and midrange response, catering not only to flatpickers but also to fingerstyle players, blues aficionados, and a myriad of musical styles. The soundbox geometry and carefully voiced bracing ensure a balanced tone, neither favouring treble nor bass, creating an instrument that harmoniously resonates with your musical expression.

The F-21C boasts exquisite tonewoods, combining the richness of walnut for the back and sides with the sonorous qualities of Sitka spruce for the soundboard. Walnut, one of George Lowden's personal favourites, delivers exceptional clarity and definition, enhancing the guitar's overall tonal character. Previously available only with a Red Cedar top, the inclusion of Sitka spruce in the Original Series further elevates its tonal versatility and dynamic range.

Continuing the tradition of excellence, the F-21C features a 5-piece mahogany and rosewood neck, offering optimal stability and enhanced tonal balance. The ebony fingerboard ensures effortless playability and responsiveness, allowing your fingers to glide smoothly across the frets. With the GL standard neck profile, this guitar provides a comfortable playing experience, measuring 45mm at the nut and extending to 57mm at the 14th fret, accommodating players of various styles and preferences.

The F-21C's aesthetic allure is tastefully understated, accentuated by a seven-piece wood rosette, single piece binding, and three-piece purfling on the top, as well as rosewood front-head facing and figured maple binding. These meticulous details not only enhance the guitar's visual appeal but also contribute to its overall resonance and structural integrity.

Furthermore, this custom F-21C offers the versatility of a cutaway, granting unrestricted access to higher frets, enabling you to explore the full range of the guitar's melodic potential. Equipped with Gotoh Gold 381 tuners with ebony buttons, the F-21C ensures impeccable tuning stability, allowing you to focus on your performance without any distractions.

The F-21C comes strung with Lowden Light Gauge 12-53 strings, meticulously chosen to complement the guitar's tonal characteristics. These strings deliver a well-balanced and expressive sound, further enhancing your playing experience.

In summary, the Lowden F-21C is a testament to the timeless artistry and exceptional quality of Lowden Guitars. Crafted with passion and expertise, this guitar offers remarkable tonal versatility, superb playability, and exquisite aesthetics. Whether you're a flatpicker, fingerstyle virtuoso, or an artist seeking unparalleled musical expression, the F-21C is a remarkable instrument that will ignite your creativity and inspire your musical journey.
