On the first floor, here at Guitar Village, you will find an impressive selection of some of the finest acoustic guitars out there. Up there with the biggest names in guitar lutherie is the exceptional Lowden Guitars.
A real family firm based in Downpatrick, Ireland, the company has built its immense reputation through founder, George Lowden’s incredible skill and artistry.
Customers who visit the Lowden department are guaranteed to find acoustic guitars of the absolute highest quality from materials to design to craftsmanship. In fact, Lowden Guitars speak volumes through their sound, their tone, how they play, how they look and how effortless they seem to engage with guitarists.
The aesthetic of Lowden guitars is beautifully understated, yet distinctive, allowing the raw materials to be the real star of the show. Take, for example, the Lowden O-32 which nestles in the range, loud and self-promoting with its jumbo body producing a deep and resonant bass and crystal clear mids and highs. Recent years have seen Lowden produce fan-fret, baritone, solid-bodied electrics and the compact “Wee Lowden” models as well as signature models for such guitar virtuosos as Richard Thompson, Alex De Grassi, Pierre Bensusan and Thomas Leeb.
While Lowden Guitars are certainly investment quality, at their very heart is musicality which is why you often see well-worn and well-loved Lowden guitars in the hands of top players on stages around the world.
If Lowden acoustic guitars are a little out of your price range, you would do well to check out the Sheeran by Lowden range. The collaboration between international megastar, Ed Sheeran and George Lowden was launched in 2019 with the mission to produce top-quality affordable acoustic guitars bringing the musicality and soul of Lowden to a wider range of players.
