Introducing the exquisite Lowden Original Series F-34 12 Fret acoustic guitar, a true masterpiece crafted for discerning musicians who demand nothing but the finest. Lowden, renowned for their unparalleled commitment to quality and craftsmanship, presents this exceptional instrument as a testament to their rich heritage and unwavering pursuit of sonic perfection.

The F-34 12 Fret model represents the latest addition to the Original Series, a collection that upholds the timeless tradition established by Lowden back in 1976. With its unique two-number model designation, the Original Series distinguishes itself from other Lowden series like the 35 and 50. It showcases understated elegance with its seven-piece wood rosette, single-piece binding, and three-piece purfling on the top. The rosewood front-head facing and ebony fingerboard further enhance its aesthetic appeal.

Now, let's delve into the remarkable features that set the F-34 12 Fret apart from the rest. Its body is expertly crafted using a combination of Koa for the back and sides, and Sitka Spruce for the soundboard. This blend results in a distinct, jazzy warmth that is perfect for a wide range of playing styles, whether you're strumming chords with passion or delicately picking intricate melodies.

One notable aspect of the F-34 12 Fret is its 12-fret join, a design choice that offers exceptional tonal benefits. By relocating the bridge and bringing the neck closer to the body, this configuration provides unparalleled resonance, volume, and power. Additionally, it offers enhanced comfort, reducing strain on your wrist and hand, particularly when playing lower down the fretboard. This thoughtful design ensures a seamless playing experience, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the music.

The F shape, originally introduced by Lowden in 1982 and refined in 2003, further contributes to the guitar's exceptional tonal characteristics. The smaller soundbox shape delivers remarkable projection and midrange response, making it a dream come true for flatpickers. However, its versatility extends beyond that, captivating the hearts of fingerstyle players, blues guitarists, and musicians across various genres. The soundbox geometry and carefully voiced bracing create a balanced sound, neither favouring treble nor bass, resulting in a harmonious blend that will captivate your audience.

The craftsmanship of the F-34 12 Fret extends to every detail. The neck, constructed from a fusion of 5-piece mahogany and rosewood, provides exceptional stability and resonance. The ebony fingerboard offers a smooth and comfortable playing surface, allowing your fingers to glide effortlessly across the frets. The renowned GL standard neck profile ensures an optimal playing experience, measuring 45mm at the nut and extending to 57mm at the 14th fret, providing a comfortable grip and facilitating precise technique.

This exquisite instrument is adorned with elegant maple binding and striking mahogany-rocklite-maple purflings, showcasing the meticulous attention to detail that defines Lowden guitars. The Gotoh 381 Gold tuners with ebony buttons provide precise tuning stability, ensuring that your performance remains in perfect harmony.

When you choose the Lowden F-34 12 Fret, you're not just acquiring a guitar; you're embracing a legacy of unparalleled craftsmanship and sonic excellence. This instrument is a testament to the unwavering passion and dedication that George Lowden and his team pour into every creation. From the moment you touch the F-34 12 Fret, you'll experience its remarkable responsiveness, allowing you to express yourself in ways you've never imagined. Elevate your music to new heights with the Lowden Original Series F-34 12 Fret, and embark on a musical journey like no other.
