The Lowden F-34 model offers a full bodied and yet very clear, defined tone. The Sitka Spruce top helps to balance the Koa’s warm fullness whilst offering power and projection that will cut through any mix.
“Koa is a comparatively lighter tonewood which means, if you like to play gently, it’s an excellent choice. It gives you the ability to express yourself and have lots of different nuances of tone. Just touch the guitar and it will respond.” George Lowden
The Original Series was the very first Lowden range from 1976, just as the ‘O’ model is George’s original Lowden body design. Although the medium sized ‘F’ and concert sized ‘S’ have been added to the range since then, the Lowden standard of passionate commitment to no compromise was well and truly set.
