Building your dream acoustic guitar with Lowden.
Lowden make some of the finest acoustic guitars in the world. As a dealer we always try to keep a variety of different models from the Original series but also some more unique custom offerings from the 35 and 50 series. While you may fall in love with an instrument we have in stock, it’s important to remember there is always the option to have a custom instrument build specifically for you. People often assume that a custom made guitar will carry an exorbitant price tag but as all Lowden guitars are handmade instruments there is no expensive upcharge for ordering your own unique guitar.
Guitars from the Original, 35 and 50 series can all be made to order and can be customized to some degree, with the 35 and 50 series offering a higher level of customization.
The Original Series
Original series models will always have a set spec in terms of their tone-woods, For example, a 25 model will always be a Cedar top with Rosewood back and sides, a 34 will always be a Spruce top with Koa back and sides. However there are still many options to consider when planning your own build. Body shapes play a large role in defying the tonal properties as well as the comfort of the playing experience. A cutaway can give you higher upper fret access. What about narrow or even wider nut widths? Ever thought about the multiscale length effect of fanned frets? These are just some of the more popular customisations with the Original Series models. Left handed players will also be glad to know that not only are lefty models available throughout the range but this is at no additional charge.
The 35 series
Lowden’s 35 series are truly custom instruments. 35 offers you the chance to select a wide array of wood combinations. Choose from Cedar, Spruce and Redwood tops or even a different species of Spruce like Sitka, Alpine and Lutz. These are coupled with a beautiful figured back and side wood like Tasmanian Blackwood, Ancient Bog Oak and Cocobolo to name but a few. Add to this, all the options from the Original Series as well as a few more interesting choices like the beveled arm-rest and a plethora of customisation to help you realize your dream acoustic guitar.
The 50 series
The 50 series is the cream of the crop. 50 offers a staggering choice of 90 different wood combinations. Not only is there so much more choice but all woods in the 50 series are master grade quality, the finest pieces that Lowden have to offer. This is the opportunity to spec a truly bespoke instrument using the finest crafting materials available.
