One of the most surprising aspects of the S model is its tonal prowess. Designed in 1994 for Nick Webb of Acoustic Alchemy, the S shape defies expectations commonly associated with small guitars. While other compact guitars may lack volume and sound boxy, the S-50 is a game-changer. Its bass response and sustain defy its size, making it possibly the loudest of all Lowden models. The S shape is expertly designed and braced with a bass bias, ensuring a rich, balanced, and captivating sound.

The soundboard is made from Master Grade Alpine Spruce, a wood that Lowden expects to mature and improve in tone over time. This dedication to creating guitars that age gracefully and sound increasingly better is a testament to Lowden's commitment to exceptional craftsmanship.
The S-50's neck is a work of art in itself, constructed from a combination of 5-piece Mahogany and Rosewood for optimal strength, stability, and tonal resonance. The extended curved-end Ebony fingerboard with Maple bindings offers a luxurious playing experience, while the GL standard neck profile ensures a comfortable grip and effortless playability. With a scale length of 630mm, the S-50 strikes the perfect balance between playability and tonal response.
Binding in figured Koa adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to the S-50, while the Mahogany-Maple-Rocklite purflings showcase the exquisite craftsmanship that goes into every detail of this guitar.
