1991 Lowden 010 Custom – £2199
NEW ARRIVAL This is where it all started for Lowden, the O10, the original bigger body guitar with a Cedar top and Mahogany back and sides. The first thing to mention is the look of the guitar – it has one of the darkest Cedar tops I’ve seen, suggesting a real maturity to it’s sound that you’d look for in a 30 year old guitar. The other thing to note is that this is a Custom model, featuring a one piece Mahogany neck with a slightly slimmer neck than on a standard model, which measures 1 11/16” (43mm). Tonally It has a warm, full sound, with great resonance and clarity, and the neck has a great feel and very comfortable playing action. The guitar is in very good condition for it’s age, just the usual signs of playwear you’d expect from a well played guitar, and no cracks or repairs. It comes in it’s original branded hard case.
