Introducing the exquisite Lowden 50 Series S-50 acoustic guitar, a true masterpiece crafted by the renowned Lowden Custom Shop. Prepare to be captivated by its unparalleled quality and exceptional tonal brilliance. The 50 Series represents the pinnacle of Lowden's craftsmanship, utilising only the finest Master Grade tone woods available. When selecting the woods for this series, Lowden meticulously grades them multiple times, reserving only the most extraordinary pieces to ensure every 50 Series guitar showcases the epitome of tonal and visual perfection.

Visually stunning and acoustically sublime, the S-50 boasts an array of exquisite aesthetic appointments. From highly figured wood bindings to intricate purflings on the top, sides, and back, no detail is spared. Its seven-piece hand-inlaid back centre seam, abalone and figured wood rosette, and extended maple-bound ebony fingerboard create a visual feast for the eyes. The bookmatched ebony front and back head facings add a touch of elegance to this exceptional instrument.

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.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the S-50 features a Master Grade Ziricote back and sides, providing a visually stunning backdrop for its exceptional 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. Equipped with Gotoh Gold 510 tuners with Ebony buttons, the S-50 ensures precise tuning stability and a touch of visual splendour.

Indulge in the extraordinary sound and exquisite craftsmanship of the Lowden 50 Series S-50 acoustic guitar. This is the pinnacle of what Lowden can achieve - a truly magnificent instrument that will captivate and inspire you for a lifetime.
