Introducing the Lowden F-50 from the prestigious 50 Series, the epitome of acoustic guitar craftsmanship. Handcrafted in the Lowden Custom Shop, this masterpiece is meticulously constructed using only the finest Master Grade tone woods, carefully chosen for their exceptional tonal and visual properties. When it comes to quality, Lowden spares no expense.

Every 50 Series guitar benefits from the rarest and most exceptional pieces of tone wood available anywhere. These guitars are the pinnacle of Lowden's artistry and dedication to creating instruments of unparalleled beauty and sonic excellence. Prepare to be captivated by the exceptional tonal range and stunning visual aesthetics of the F-50.

The F-50, with its distinctive F shape, was first designed in 1982 and has since been refined to perfection in 2003. This smaller soundbox shape enhances projection and midrange response, making it an ideal choice for flatpickers. However, it has also found favour amongst fingerstyle players, blues guitarists, and musicians of various genres. The soundbox geometry and meticulously voiced bracing create a balanced tone that neither favours treble nor bass, providing a versatile platform for your musical expression.

Crafted with a Master Grade African Blackwood back and sides and a Master Grade Sinker Redwood soundboard, the F-50 delivers a rich, resonant sound with exceptional clarity and warmth. The 5-piece Mahogany and Rosewood neck offers stability and enhances sustain, while the ebony fingerboard with maple bindings provides a smooth playing experience with an exquisite aesthetic touch.

One of the standout features of the 50 Series is its intricate and complex aesthetic appointments. From highly figured wood bindings to purflings on the top, sides, and back, every detail is crafted with utmost precision and artistry. The seven-piece hand-inlaid back centre seam, abalone and figured wood rosette, and extended maple-bound ebony fingerboard exemplify the meticulous attention to detail that goes into each Lowden 50 Series guitar.

Custom options abound in the F-50, including the popular soundbox bevel. Originally introduced on the Pierre Bensusan signature model, the bevel is a curved piece of wood that forms part of the binding on the upper bout. It not only adds a touch of elegance but also enhances comfort by providing a resting place for your arm during those long practice sessions or performances.

With Gotoh Gold 510 tuners featuring elegant ebony buttons, you can trust in the F-50's tuning stability and precision, allowing you to focus on your music without distractions. The guitar is strung with Lowden Light Gauge 12-53 strings, further enhancing its balanced and versatile tonal characteristics.

In summary, the Lowden F-50 from the prestigious 50 Series is a testament to the art of guitar making. With its impeccable craftsmanship, exquisite tonewoods, and attention to detail, this guitar sets the standard for acoustic excellence. Whether you're a professional musician or an avid collector, the F-50 will inspire and elevate your musical journey to new heights.
