1994 Lowden S23c – £1999

NEW ARRIVAL  This is a great example of a small bodied Lowden, with the less common combination of Cedar top and Walnut 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 27 year old guitar. 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 well played condition, with quite a lot of visible playwear on the top, which has just added to the maturity of tone, making it a very difficult guitar to put down. There is a small top crack repair just below the bridge on the treble side, which is very tight and doesn’t affect the structural integrity of the guitar, or the tone. As with all Lowdens it handles alternate tuning particularly well, and is equally happy being fingerpicked or strummed. The guitar has an active under saddle pickup fitted, and comes in it’s original Hiscox hard case.
