What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

A tremendous Irish-style "big medium" instrument that's opened up wonderfully already.  The power and nartural compression you'd expect from former Lowden builders are here in spades as well as an enchanting richness that draws you in--very intimate for a guitar of this size.  Whether you're looking to tradition for DADGAD explorations or off into the horizon for more modern meanderings, this masterful guitar will keep up every step of the way!

SP Luthier Notes: Fret dress, new saddle, and setup
