The fruitwoods have a history in instrument making, cherry for example is used in lutes I believe and pearwood can a nice tonewood.

I've tried the Lowdens and the European luthiers' guitars from pearwood and it is more towards the Cherry/Maple end of the scale, reflective, brighter, although in fairness if you know how to use it, it can sound wonderful...

Here are 2 of the lowdens found in the database on our site:
- 30th Anniversary F Model 2 of 30
- 30th Anniversary S Model 16 of 30
