One of the finest guitars George Lowden builds is the Thomas Leeb Signature Edition. Big, wide open sound with bags of tone! Thomas Leeb is a master guitar player with a percussive style. He really knows how to coax the guitar to it's fullest expression. Sitka Spruce over Walnut back and sides with a Walnut "tap plate" for those songs that require a little "back beat". Smooth as silk 5 layer Mahogany neck and a black Ebony fingerboard. This guitar is also a great strummer. The chords you play just ring endlessly. So full and rich... a pure joy to play!
