Lowden S-35M Fiddleback Mahogany

“The 35 Series is for the serious player who can appreciate a whole new world of subtle tone colours and dynamic range.”

Figured in a truly stunning Fiddleback Mahogany (top, back and sides) and offering  crisp defined clarity and a perfectly rounded tone.

George Lowden comments:  “Over the years when I was asked to make a guitar with a “hardwood” soundboard I was always wary – simply because of the stiffness and density of most hardwoods. “Would the hardwood soundboards vibrate freely – would they give a warm response?” In general I shied away from using them in the past. Then came along this fiddleback mahogany which seemed to have quite a mild easy grain structure. What has surprised me is just how warm and responsive this particular type of central American mahogany is. There is none of the hardness you might expect and of course because of that, the voicing of the internal struts is easier as well. Beautiful looking and beautifully responsive!”
