The L-449 Dreadnaught from Lorenzo was the 2004 winner of Guitar Magazine?s ?Best Acoustic Guitar Under £1000? Award ? proving that you don?t have to spend a fortune to get a great sounding instrument.For those who don?t mind paying a bit more for longevity and tone in an instrument then the L-449 is also available with a solid Spruce top. The key to this guitar?s remarkably low price is that all of the usual cosmetic features such as body binding, glossy finishing and position inlays have been left out, focusing funds on quality sound, materials and construction. The result of this unusual simplicity is a guitar that is actually quite interesting to look at, especially considering the sound it makes!
Review By: Denis Rating: 5 - Excellent Product: Lorenzo L449 Electro Acoustic Guitar Review: Bought this after a mate recommended the dreadnought version. Firstly quick dispatch and delivery was superb. As for the guitar itself, all the good reviews and awards are well deserved, plays and sounds as good as guitars costing a multiple of the price, only minor gripe is the action is a tiny bit on the high side but I can amend that easily enough myself. The simplicity of this guitar actually is quite appealing when you see it for real, and the satin finish 'feels' great especially on the neck. The built in preamp with EQ also is to be commended, very clear and sweet sounding. This guitar really is a bargain, its recent placing in Guitar & Bass magazines Top 20 pieces of gear is well deserved. Date: 02/08/2011
