2005 Lowden 025 – £2199

NEW ARRIVAL  This is a great example of the original size, bigger bodied Lowden, with my favourite combination of Cedar top and Rosewood back and sides. On the Lowden O series guitars I find Spruce / Rosewood very dominant sounding, whereas the Cedar top adds warmth to the overall tone, but the Rosewood still delivers clarity and definition. Plus the bigger body size moves more air. It has a rich, full sound, with great resonance and sustain, and the neck has a great feel and very easy playing action. As with all Lowdens it handles alternate tuning particularly well, and is equally happy being fingerpicked or strummed. At 16 years old it has really matured, and the Cedar top has darkened beautifully. The guitar is in good overall condition, with plenty of signs of playwear, and comes in it’s original Hiscox flight case.
