Lowden's premium series is where ultimate guitars are born. The F-50c Bastone Walnut / Alpine Spruce we received is by all means a great example of Lowden's attention to the most delicate details and premium craftsmanship. The Walnut back&sides on it are dazzling, there is no other way to put it, so is the Maple bevel. The guitar plays effortlessly and has an extremely well defined and balanced tone. The depth and projection of this guitar cannot be expressed with words. We felt that the F-50c is a perfect guitar for the single, virtuoso acoustic guitar player or the solo singer songwriter, as this guitar needs and deserves space to shine.
