LOWDEN GUITARS

We are particularly proud to be a George Lowden Dealer here at Guitar Gallery. As you know, Lowden Guitars are hand made in Northern Ireland. The internal bracing is hand carved and its unique design gives Lowden Guitars their characteristic rich tone. The beauty of the select tone woods is fully appreciated because each guitar has a hand-polished natural satin finish. Lowden Guitars have an integral truss rod which does not compress the neck wood. All Lowdens come with Hiscox hard shell cases.

    Punch Leather Care!

    Yes folks, that's right! All you Lowden owner/lovers need to get a bottle of this. This is the stuff the folks at Lowden use on their fine guitars, and we recommend you do the same. It took some searching, but Charlie finally tracked down the source for this much needed product. Because of the superb hand polished finish on Lowden guitars, you do NOT use regular guitar polish on them. Only PUNCH will do. $5.95 for an aerosol bottle.

  • Lowden Millenium Twins: Model O cutaway and S cutaway. LIMITED EDITION: ONLY 25 PAIRS OF THESE WERE MADE & this set is # 25.

    Available in a matching pair, an O cutaway and S cutaway, these guitars are made from non tropical woods using trees which have fallen due to natural causes, not harvested for commercial use. Each guitar features matching back and sides from the most exquisite figured Claro Walnut log, and a tight grain, Master Grade, aged Redwood top, from the same split "billet". The headstock is overlaid in dark Claro Walnut to match the back and sides and inlayed with the customary Lowden logo. A special Millennium logo is descreetly inlayed on the guitar heelcap. The bracing on each pair is hand-carved to accentuate the unique voicing, which has become Lowden's trademark. Elegant wood inlays and a Pear and Ebony bound fingerboard add the finishing touch to these Millennium edition guitars.

    This pair is in MINT condition... these are year 2001 guitars. Our Millenium set is nothing short of stunning! The necks are the usual 5-piece construction for stability. The Redwood top glistens...... The Claro Walnut is figured and the sets for these 2 guitars match. The rosette is abalone ~ surrounded by Sycamore & ebony purfling. Each guitar has a clear pickguard. The fingerboard is bound in Ebony & Pearwood and has fine purfling lines running the length of each side. The body is bound in figure Sycamore, accented by purfling lines.

  • Lowden 25th Anniversary Silver Jubilee! 1999 ~ Near Mint.....SOLD. Gooooodness, Gracious! This is the most extravagant Brazilian Rosewood that we have seen on ANY of the Silver Jubilees!

The headstock is overlayed front and back plates with Brazilian. Gold Schaller tuners with Ebony buttons. Abalone rosette. Clear pickguard. 1 3/4" nut width on the Ebony fingerboard. 5 piece neck that consists of Mahogany, Walnut, and Purple Heart. The fingerboard is bound with Brazilian Rosewood with a fine line of Tasmanian Blackwood. This fine line is echoed on the edges of the fretboard as well. Another feature that sets the 25th Anniversary models apart is the interior. The soundboard braces themselves have been painstakingly carved & buffed (yes, they are rubbed smooth to offer less resistance to the vibrating air). The bracing pattern may be similar to other Lowdens, but much more time was devoted to the voicing of the soundboard on these models, honing it to George Lowden's own exacting specs. The special label is hand signed by George, himself. Our price on this rare (only 101 were made), collectible Lowden is Sold.
