2018 Lowden 023 – £2199
SOLD This is a great example of the original size, bigger bodied Lowden, with the very unusual combination of Cedar top and Walnut back and sides. Tonally Walnut sits somewhere between the warmth of Mahogany, and the clarity of Rosewood. 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 3 years old it has already begun to mature, yet it looks practically unplayed. The guitar has a K and K pickup installed and comes in it’s original Hiscox flight case.
