A stunning and truly remarkable guitar, built with AAA African Blackwood and Alpine spruce.
It has the fan fret option which gives the guitar a fantastic bass response and a clear bell like top end. The build quality is superb and we have to say this is one of the best playing acoustic guitars we have ever had the pleasure of running our fingers over. We were expecting it to feel really strange because of the angled frets, but playing it feels surprisingly normal and natural. Where you notice a massive difference is in the tone. It is perfectly balanced between the bass and top strings and the intonation is perfect.
The aesthetics of this guitar are simply staggering. The grain of the Alpine Spruce top is naturally wavy and gives a very appealing quilt-like effect. The African Blackwood is the star of the show though; dark and mysterious, with a gorgeous visible spine running down the centre of the back. Add the Lowden satin finish and you have a guitar that looks nothing other than sensational.
More than just a collectors' piece, this is a perfect example of what a guitar can be. Toneful, balanced, very playable, and very desirable.
This guitar has some very light signs of use from demo play in-store.
