Lowden Guitars S-35 12-Fret Cocobolo
A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever
George Lowden was only ten years old when he built his first acoustic guitar with a square soundboard, bent nails for frets, and fishing line for strings. He’s since moved on to much, much better materials (including real strings!), but every Lowden Guitar that leaves his shop is still shot through with just as much love, joy, integrity and passion as that fateful first guitar. George Lowden calls this the “Olympic method” of making guitars, and his commitment to excellence is evident with every strum. He and his small team make their guitars in a small shop in Downpatrick, Ireland with such impeccable craftsmanship and artistic flair that they may very well transcend your notion of what an acoustic guitar can do. We know that they will transform your music-making experience for the better, and we invite you to discover the awe-inspiring sounds of these majestic Irish acoustics.
Classy CocoboloWildwoodians, we are proud to introduce you to this classy cocobolo beast! This Lowden S-35 12-fret is an absolute tone monster with the kind of tonewoods that would launch a thousand ships. The top is made of a AAAA-grade variant of the old standby, Sitka spruce, and it delivers a sterling example of its signature balanced yet full-bodied tone. The AAAA cocobolo sides take things to the stratosphere by injecting this guitar with more sustain, low-end power, projection, and overtone presence. All of this is amplified by the 12-fret body construction, which imparts a piano-like fullness and depth. All in all, it's a huge-sounding small-bodied guitar that sacrifices none of its advantages (responsiveness, dynamics, and subtlety) while punching far above its weight class. We have no doubt it will inspire some intrepid acoustic adventurer to embark on all sorts of exciting fretboard journeys!
