A Brief Introduction to Lowden Guitars

Celebrating their 40th Anniversary anyone who has ever held a Lowden knows that they are among the most exceptional instruments available in the world today. Lowden guitars are hand built in Ireland by a dedicated team of craftsmen working with George Lowden.

The sound and construction quality of Lowden's guitars is always superb. In this high tech age, we come to expect this from the big producers, but this consistently high standard from the smaller builders is harder to find.

Every Lowden guitar across the range is shaped and voiced by hand from the finest materials, to exacting specifications. With only a limited number of these beautiful instruments being made, the current models are sure to become the collectors' items of tomorrow!
