Lowden Guitars are wonderfully made and even better, wonderful sounding . Today lets look at the Lowden instruments . It is very hard to choose one specific model to preview so perhaps we will just lift up the entire line .
Lowden Guitars was created by Irish builder George Lowden .
George Lowden began building guitars back in 1974. To read the entire history of Lowden go to www.georgelowden.com and scroll down below his picture to “The Story of George Lowden and His Guitars”.

Lowden guitars is the result of unique design, workmanship and assembly techniques.
The design consists of Curvy, smooth sound box shapes combined with carefully voiced internal bracing and sound box profiles, and use of natural wood decorations with a unique hand rubbed satin finish all combine to make the Lowden guitar what it is today”.
Workmanship: “ Introducing unplanned for stress into any musical instrument deadens the tonal response. Their assembly techniques involve the use of hand tools to improve the quality of all joints and enable the “Dolphin Profile” voicing of the soundboard bracing. This and much more ensures that sustain, volume and balance are not hindered. Just great workmanship and attention to detail!”
Lowden’s choice in tone-woods. are the real ‘stars’ of their guitars. It is this combination of detail which determines how Lowden guitars sound, feel, and play. To make Lowden guitars stand out in this handcrafted industry Lowden has put together a team of individuals with “talent for focus and an eye for detail” plus a passionate commitment to no compromise.

It took me playing through about a half dozen guitars over the years to find the ONE that I knew I’d never let go. I found it on consignment at Ithaca Guitar Works (NY) for a steal… it was a Lowden S7. I’d never heard the name before, so I spent some time on the ‘net. When I wanted to find out more about my personal guitar, I emailed a request to the company with my serial number. I eventually got a reply back—from George Lowden himself. He told me that my S7 was made in their shop in Belfast in 1980. I’ve owned and played it since 1997. I remember buying the guitar “in my mind” the moment I strummed one simple country-style G chord. Now, that guitar has a fair amount of “road wear,” and even one significant repair job from a knock she took at a gig. And on the verge of her 30th birthday, she sounds as full and bright as ever… Russ Clarke, who helps bring us this WFG site, helped me record a demo of a new song one day. I played my Lowden S7 into one of his good mics and through the on-board bridge pickup. Russ told me the blended tracks sounded so good, he didn’t dare ruin the magic with any EQ. Thanks for the great site, Russ. Thanks for the awesome guitar, George (and crew)! Ken Grindall
