SORRY SOLD!!!! This one is #6/10...very limited edition Lowden Lucky Strike Model, rich Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, special "Lucky Strike" Redwood top, with Cutaway (I think we are the only Lowden dealers who ordered one of these with a cutaway). Only 10 of these extremely limitied edition Lucky Strike models will be made all together...and we are lucky enough to be getting TWO of them. This first one has a cutaway. The second one coming later in the Spring will be without cutaway. FROM THE GEORGE LOWDEN WEBSITE: " ..... using George’s last reserved soundboard sets from the famous “Lucky Strike’ Log . This was a ‘fall down’ (ie. not felled) log of exceptional quality from Humbolt County. Some say it was struck by lightening! It was given its name by the specialist redwood supplier Alicia Carter . She and her husband (who was himself a luthier) hunted the forests for undiscovered 'fall down' logs. They would then apply to the US authorities for permission to use them - this permission was not always granted . But whenever they did get permission, they would go into the forest and cut the log 'in situ'. Often they gave the log a name according to the nature of what they found when it was cut - The Lucky Strike log was so named because every single soundboard cut from this log was of exceptional quality - the grain of the redwood is superb. The Brazilian Rosewood we use is reclaimed wood, as is our special neckwood from ‘Church Pew Mahogany’. The sound is very well balanced and piano-like. It is very loud, very clear and has loads of sustain - we counted 25 seconds!" Specs on these highly desirable guitars are available on the Lowden website, cut and paste this link, enter the site, then look for Limted Edition Lucky Strike: www.georgelowden.com. You simply can't find a more beautiful, rare and fabulous Lowden F size guitar with cutaway than this one...a world-class lifetime guitar that you just won't want to put down. SORRY...SOLD!!!
