Lowden Guitars 35 Series O-35
A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever
George Lowden was only ten years old when he built his first acoustic guitar with a square soundboard, bent nails for frets, and fishing line for strings. He’s since moved on to much, much better materials (including real strings!), but every Lowden Guitar that leaves his shop is still shot through with just as much love, joy, integrity and passion as that fateful first guitar. George Lowden calls this the “Olympic method” of making guitars, and his commitment to excellence is evident with every strum. He and his small team make their guitars in a small shop in Downpatrick, Ireland with such impeccable craftsmanship and artistic flair that they may very well transcend your notion of what an acoustic guitar can do. We know that they will transform your music-making experience for the better, and we invite you to discover the awe-inspiring sounds of these majestic Irish acoustics.
A New Kind of JumboWildwoodians, this guitar can trace a direct lineage back to the very first guitar George Lowden ever built, and they still carry the spark from his initial burst of inspiration. How so? Well, the body shape before you--codename "O"--has remained unchanged since those early days back in the '70s.
One strum and it's easy to see why his first design has endured for so long. Simply put, they defy our expectations of what a jumbo guitar can be. They sound huge and fill the room with orchestral sound when pushed hard, yet they have an astonishing capacity for subtlety and nuance. They enjoy when you play with a heavy right hand, but they also have an extraordinarily wide dynamic range at lower volumes. They have plenty of punching power, but they can sound sweet as sugar-crusted molasses.
We invite you to take this Lowden O-35 for a spin and discover why this tried-and-true body shape still surprises us more than four decades later.
