Lowden Pierre Bensusan Signature Model

The first guitar George made for Pierre was back in 1978 and that 'old lady' battered and bruised but much loved and played still sings beautifully today. Over the years since then Pierre and George have worked very closely together and Pierre has made many recordings with that first Lowden guitar. George also remembers adding a Cutaway and making the neck a bit wider to Pierre's first Lowden in 1999. Therefore, designing and building a new guitar for Pierre in 2009 was a project which George approached with special expectations and hope. His challenge was to design a new guitar with many of the attributes of the old one but with more comfort to allow Pierre to play and compose for many hours each day.

Pierre asked George to include a sound-box "bevel". To make sure the new guitar had plenty of brilliance and warmth at the same time, George choose Honduras rosewood and Adirondack spruce, also among my favourite tonewoods. Honduras rosewood is the nearest wood in character and (tone)colour to good quality Brazilian rosewood - it has the same texture, density, hardness - and most of all -the same tap tone. Adirondack spruce was the wood used on the famous pre-war Martin (and Gibson) guitars, it is only available again since approx. 1995 because during WW2 all supply was used up for building boats and planes. The tonal clarity, warmth and rather 'three dimensional' powerful tonal quality is unique and it's no wonder Adirondack topped pre-war Martin guitars ar so sought after. Nowadays the same thing happens with Honduras Rosewood, it's hard to come by and to make the PB work these days other woods are used for back and sides such as Mountain rosewood. A golden couple with Adirondack spruce - And i'm very pleased to present this wonderful guitar to you!
