George Lowden, the Irish founder of Lowden Guitars, says of cocobolo wood: "Basically cocobolo gives a very strong, meaty and powerful tone with a subtle warmth. Combined with Adirondack you get a powerful instrument that can play any style! Cocobolo is a genuine rosewood that grows along the Pacific coast from Central America to southern Mexico. It is harder, heavier and denser than other rosewoods. For this reason cocobolo is a better sound reflector and absorbs less sound than the softer rosewoods. Cocobolo is closer in tone, color and texture to the finest Brazilian rosewood used for guitars of yesteryear than any other tonewood available today. It offers everything that Brazilian rosewood offers and more: more power, more sustain, more volume." So we are extremely pleased to be able to offer you here a Lowden F-50 Master Grade Cocobolo, which list price is actually over EUR 10,000. The combination of a top made of Mastergrade Adirondack Red Spruce, as well as back and sides made of Mastergrade Cocobolo delivers outstanding sound quality and complexity. Every note comes into its own here, deep basses, meaty mids and pearly highs with a heavenly amount of overtones. This acoustic simply sings. You can feel how the entire body and neck resonate when you play. Fast response and articulation! In addition, the wood selection of the top, back and sides in combination with the dark ebony fingerboard, the additional use of Tasmanian Blackwood and Abalone, as well as the attractive Gotoh Gold/Ebony tuners contribute to the fantastic look of the guitar. Noble, classic, beautiful! And the pleasantly flat, medium "GL Standard" profile of the neck adds to the fact that you won't want to put down this acoustic, which comes to its future owner in top condition.
