Lakewood A-38 Edition 2020


Superb nylon-string Lakewood. Auditorium model with cherry wood sides and back.

Lakewood continues to surprise us every time. The sympathetic brand of the equally sympathetic luthier Martin Seeliger releases so-called 'Edition' models every year. The approach is that the Custom Shop of the German brand releases a limited number of models every year with a number of special features, combinations of production methods or unique aesthetic features. This is also the case with this Lakewood A-38 Edition 2020. Where the brand is best known for the beautiful steel-string guitars that the brand makes, this time a classic nylon configuration has been chosen. The combination of the AAA European spruce top and the cherry wood back and sides is, of course, exciting to say the least. Especially in combination with the 25.6" scale, this produces a sparkling and tight tone that offers a tasteful balance between a warm character in the low end and an almost fairytale presence in the overtones. Details such as the wood-inlaid rosette around the sound hole, the rosewood fingerboard and the beautiful Der Jung Classic gold tuners complete the whole thing in a tasteful way.Finally, we find the acclaimed LR Baggs Anthem SL Classical pickup for instant stage-ready.Including Hiscox case.
