Lakewood M-53 Edition 2021


The ultimate Lakewood guitar with breathtaking Cocobolo back and sides and luxurious details.

The very first M-53 Edition 2021 built: this is the guitar featured in Lakewood's catalogue! This instrument is so incredibly beautiful and already a favorite of ours. Thanks to the combination of a bearclaw spruce top from Austria and a dazzlingly beautiful back and sides made of Mexican Cocobolo, this Lakewood M-53 has a truly magical tone that is reminiscent of a piano at times. In terms of sound, the guitar is somewhere between a Martin and a Gibson. That is to say: the basses are tight, full and punchy. And at the same time, the M-53 has an unprecedented dynamic range. Only the very best tonewoods have been used for this beauty and the attention to detail oozes from every aspect. The body, fingerboard, headstock and bridge are decorated with a beautiful Muninga binding. And the Wine finish accentuates the drawing in the bearclaw spruce top and at the same time provides a nice contrast with the aforementioned binding. This guitar is the definition of elegance.
