Lady McMoo Help: Lowden Guitars (41) RE: Help: Lowden Guitars 29 Dec 00


John,

My Lakewood has a so-called "ragtime" option neck. This is the same scale length and 14 fret to body as standard but is much wider and less radiused, approaching classical guitar fingerboard dimensions. It is fairly "beefy" in thickness. I have rather large hands and play about 95% fingerstyle on this guitar so it's perfect for me in this respect.

Tone is a very subjective thing but I'd say, in combination with the sitka top and scalloped bracing Martin Seiliger uses, ovankol produces a sound something between mahogany and rosewood, fairly crisp and with good separation treble to bass but with a little more warmth than the average rosewood instrument,

Best regards,

mcmoo
