"Richard chose this wood combination and other specifications because of the really full-bodied loud and clear response of ziricote and cedar." - George Lowden

With a guitar specially crafted for Richard Thompson, you can be sure you're going to get something that has richness of tone, sparking highs, and lush sustain. And that's to say nothing of its versatility for both fingerstyle and for fast, Celtic-inspired strumming. With the dimensions of a standard Lowden F model, plus a smooth Venetian cutaway, raw power meets playability. Richard's choice tonewoods, already beautiful enough on their own, are accented by multi-wood binding, rosette and purfling, and a smooth, satin finish.

This pre-owned 2018 model is in excellent condition, with only minor signs of prior ownership. A K&K pickup is pre-installed, and the guitar ships out in its original Hiscox hard case.
