What We Think

Here comes the BOOM. This Baritone is everything you would expect from a Lowden guitar. I found myself playing my favorite classic bass lines on this and soon transitioned into some chord melodies. This guitar has the low end you would expect from a Baritone, but also an even response throughout it's range. Lowden has impressed me once again!

There are quite a few cosmetic bumps and bruises, reminding me that this guitar has been played and loved. Give us a call to chat about this unique piece!

Manufacturer's Description from Lowden

The Lowden guitar is the result of unique design, workmanship and assembly techniques along with our choice of woods.

Design

“Curvy, smooth soundbox shapes combined with carefully voiced internal bracing and soundbox profiles, and use of natural wood decorations with our unique hand rubbed satin finish all combine to make the Lowden guitar what it is today”

Workmanship

“Introducing unplanned or unmitigated stress into any musical instrument deadens the tonal response. Our 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 many more design and technique factors ensure that sustain, volume and balance are not hindered in any way. No shortcuts are possible, just great workmanship and attention to detail!”

Wood

We still hand-split our bracing stock and re-grade soundboard wood. We scour the world for the best (and often most decorative) tonewoods which are the real ‘stars’ of our guitars, and not man made. It is this combination of many details which determines how our guitars sound, feel, and play. Today more than ever, I am constantly evaluating our guitars and striving to further adjust the voicing, the feel and the playability. To make Lowden guitars we need individuals with a talent for focus and an eye for detail plus a passionate commitment to no compromise. We have built a team of real craftsmen who build Lowden guitars by hand using Japanese chisels, planes, knives and spokeshaves. We are currently building a state of the art jig and tool department to ensure our craftsmen can fine tune their skills and understanding of wood, and in so doing create guitars which feel and sound like individual ‘works of art’.
