The 12 Fret model is based on our S size body. Whilst the scale length (630 mm) remains the same as the regular 14 fret S model, the bridge has been relocated and the soundbox uniquely voiced to create a guitar that offers something different to anything else in the Lowden range. The location of the bridge on the soundboard increases the guitars midrange punch and despite its more compact feel, the 12 Fret offers projection and vibrancy more akin to a guitar with a much larger body.
