2006 Lowden S32 – £2199

NEW ARRIVAL  Lowdens are one of the few modern makes of guitar I would choose to have rather than buying vintage. There’s something about George Lowden’s creations, maybe it’s the thicker than usual top, the dolphin bracing, the stronger neck join making alternative tunings a joy… I just know that when I pick up a Lowden I know I’m about to play something very special. They resonate like no other guitar make that I know, and this S32 is no exception, with a Spruce top and Rosewood back and sides, you start playing and superlatives just come to mind. It is somehow bright and mellow at the same time, delivering a beautiful balanced tone, with a surprisingly rich bass, yet detailed mids and trebles, and is equally happy being fingerpicked or strummed. At 14 years old the guitar is in very good condition, with just signs of light playwear, yet it has already begun to mature beautifully, making it a very difficult guitar to put down. It has a K and K pickup fitted, and comes in it’s original Hiscox flight case.
